Though it may look and feel like regular email, Hosted Direct mdEmail® is a robust HIPAA compliant form of Health Information Exchange. Direct messaging can be accessed from any desktop, tablet or smartphone connected to the Internet, and will sync with modern email clients (Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, etc), allowing for the exchange of data via the Direct Protocol.
- Interoperable: Hosted Direct mdEmail® interoperates with 100% with of the HISPs included in Direct Trust Accredited Trust Bundle. Even if the sender and receiver are in organizations with different HISPs and running unique HIT applications, their messages will still be processed. To avoid any possibility of data blocking, MaxMD allows clients to customize their own Trust Relationships by adding unaccredited HISP’s certificates to a client’s own unique trust bundle with the completion of proper documentation.
- Litigation Hold: Organizations can designate an administrative user with the ability to turn on Litigation Hold for Direct Addresses. Audit archives are maintained for a Direct Address even after it has been deleted.
- Intuitive usage: Hosted Direct mdEmail® Version 3.0 requires little to no learning curve since it appears to behave like regular email, and most clients are already familiar with typical email user interfaces.
- Rapid implementation: MaxMD’s easy 4-step implementation checklist enables Direct accounts to be delivered in less than 24 hours. MaxMD’s customer support team can guide clients through every step of the process.
- Fully customizable: For clients who wish to reinforce their own brand MaxMD can have our Webmail client branded with client’s custom logo and colors in less than a week.
- Administrative User Interface: An administrative user can be appointed to run outgoing Direct Message reports for Meaningful Use purposes, turn on litigation holds for own Direct Addresses, and access the DirectTrust Directory Filter tool for an easy way to download and view Direct Addresses of relevant populations.
- Streamlined referral processes: Organizations without an EHR and not pursuing MU will still benefit from a HIPAA-compliant referral process that is markedly more efficient, secure and interoperable with the entire Nationwide Health Information Network – and is designed to replace unsecure fax machines.
- One-Click CCD Viewing: This feature allows for quick viewing and printing of CCDs. MaxMD will translate .xml data generated by EHRs into human-readable CCDs in a consistent or customized style sheet.
- Message alerts: To alert Direct users of new Direct messages, alerts can be sent to the recipient’s primary email address or even as a text message to a smart phone. This Alert Message feature can be activated or deactivated at the user level.
