Direct messaging

Accelerate connectivity and transition to improved patient information exchange

Fax continues to be the most common way to exchange patient information in the Healthcare industry.

Direct messaging is now emerging as an alternative form of secure and interoperable data exchange between providers.

Meaningful connectivity starts with OpenText™ RightFax™ Healthcare Direct.

What is Direct messaging?

Direct messaging is a specific type of secure email used in U.S. healthcare and is designed to exchange patient health information between care providers across different electronic health record (EHR) applications and networks.

Direct messaging is an important step in progressing towards interoperable information exchange between disparate providers. Secure, encrypted and HIPAA-compliant, Direct messages are authenticated and encrypted to ensure sensitive data is sent and received by authorized parties only.
