Welcome to DirectABILITY
Imagine a referring physician securely sending a patient's evaluation back to the primary physician… Imagine a laboratory securely sending a patient’s test results back to her physician electronically… Imagine payers exchanging health information with providers, resulting in faster reimbursement and lower operational costs… Imagine physicians communicating directly with their patients, improving care and outcomes…
Imagine no longer: the ability to use the Internet for sending secure clinical messages is now a reality. VisionShare, the nation's largest and most trusted healthcare network, is committed to realizing this aim by establishing universal health-addressing and information exchange based on the Direct Project specifications. VisionShare was the first in the nation to demonstrate a live Direct transaction, transporting an immunization update from Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis to the Minnesota State Department of Health.
Continuing our leadership to promote connectivity and better healthcare communication, VisionShare is advancing in the future health of America by making a $50 million investment in providing—simple, easy-to-use, and secure connectivity and Direct exchange to all physicians across the United States throughout 2011. Those organizations that are current customers of VisionShare, that include over 3,000 hospitals as well as physicians, home health facilities, hospice, SNFs, and DME suppliers will appreciate immediate value with this additional capability as members of the network.
