EMR Direct Congratulates Several Partners on Completing ONC Certification in Q2 2019

Health IT Products Recently Certified for Direct and/or HL7 FHIR Services Using the Interoperability Engine Platform

SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 10, 2019 -- EMR Direct, a leading developer of software for secure health information exchange using Direct Messaging, HL7 FHIR, IHE query, and Identity Services, today announced successful certification of additional products using its popular Interoperability Engine platform.

Products receiving certification during Q2 of 2019 using the EMR Direct platform include Braintree Health, DrCloudEHR, E-Z BIS Office, and Nexus EHR.

EMR Direct's powerful integration tools allow Health IT developers to rapidly enable their own products with the Direct Messaging and HL7 FHIR functionality offered by Interoperability Engine, connecting the customers of partner products to over 1.9 Million Direct addresses at over 189,000 healthcare organizations nationwide.

EMR Direct's platform makes it easy for developers to add Direct Messaging, IHE query, or HL7 FHIR® services into their products, enabling more effective use of health information across the care continuum while meeting industry requirements for privacy and security, and without special effort by customers or the need for point to point legal agreements. "Interoperability Engine allows customers to leverage our subject matter expertise and high level of industry involvement though a simple, secure connection to our services and without an in-house investment into building out interoperability features themselves. This allows our partners to further excel at the unique capabilities of their systems that delight their customers," says Julie Maas, CEO of EMR Direct.

EMR Direct first certified its Interoperability Engine software for ONC 2015 Edition criteria in November, 2016 and has since worked with numerous existing and new partners to enable these services within their products. Certified capabilities include Direct HISP (Health Information Service Provider) services via custom software integration, XDR, or SMTP edge connection; FHIR STU3 or DSTU2; OAuth; and Dynamic Client Registration. Support for SMART, FHIR DSTU2 Argonaut, and Express Lane cross-organizational exchange leveraging UDAP profiles is also available, as is standalone OAuth as a service. The phiCert Certification Authority provides certificates for securing FHIR transactions for UDAP use cases or to service other HISPs.
