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. Integration either connects the customers of these partner products to over 2.2 million Direct addresses at over 232,000 healthcare organizations nationwide, activates their health data for access as FHIR resources, or both. The HL7 FHIR service has been very well received, with nearly twenty vendors already certified or relying upon EMR Direct's solution, and approximately 500 providers serviced by our production FHIR endpoints.

EMR Direct's platform makes it easy for developers to enable 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 interoperability subject matter expertise, or the need for point to point legal agreements or fees reflecting one-off connections.

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.
