The PA eHealth Partnership Authority was established to promote and advance this technology and health information exchange.
Information for Healthcare Providers
DIRECT is a form of secure email that provides the standards and services necessary to securely push content from a sender to a receiver. DIRECT benefits patients and providers by improving the sharing of health information, making it faster, more secure and less expensive. It is also a first step towards the adoption of more robust forms of health information exchange.
