As a health care provider, you’ve put a lot of effort into implementing an electronic health record system. Now it’s time to increase the efficiency of your EHR by adding VITLDirect  secure messaging service.

VITLDirect enables you to electronically send or receive patient information. For example, when you transfer or refer a patient to another health care organization, with VITLDirect you can securely transmit a summary of care record to another provider. If your EHR supports secure messaging, you may be able to do this without leaving your EHR. Likewise, when a patient is referred to you, a summary of care record from the referring provider could be received electronically in your EHR.   

VITLDirect uses the nationwide Direct Project communication standards. That means it works with any other system that also uses Direct standards. You can securely send patient data to providers across town or across the country.

VITLDirect is an option if:

  • Your electronic health record (EHR) does not come equipped with a complete Direct transition of care module/Health Information Service Provider (HISP).
  • Your EHR does not have a Direct module (EHRs not certified to 2014 standards).
  • A Direct module is too expensive.
  • You don't use an EHR but would like a secure email option for communicating sensitive patient information to other providers.

Achieving Meaningful Use with VITLDirect

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires hospitals and eligible providers (EPs) to achieve Meaningful Use by supporting the Transition of Care Summary measures. VITLDirect supports all portions of both Core and Menu measures.

Improving Coordination of Care

VITLDirect secure messaging can help your patients receive more coordinated care. For more information about VITLDirect, please contact us.
