Standards-Based, Secure Email Improves Transitions Of Care

February 10, 2015

Bloomington, MN – MatrixCare®, the industry leading EHR for long-term care and senior living providers, has released MatrixCare DIRECT, powered by Secure Exchange Solutions industry-leading HISP services. This standards-based, HIPAA compliant messaging solution allows providers to send secure emails to acute care and other healthcare partners from any device with Internet access.

John Damgaard, MatrixCare President and CEO, commented, "Transitions of care, and ultimately resident outcomes, are improved when healthcare providers have comprehensive information about the resident before they actually arrive at a facility. MatrixCare DIRECT allows providers to send continuity of care (CCD) documents, care summaries, lab results and more using the DIRECT standard, already in use by most hospitals and physicians, often making them preferred providers in their healthcare network."

MatrixCare DIRECT is easy to implement and use and includes the Secure Exchange One Click C-CDA viewer to display CCDs in a human readable format for easy viewing and printing. MatrixCare selected the Secure Exchange DTAAP/EHNAC-accredited HISP for its range of flexible deployment and for the strength of its Directory Services, which will maximize the connectivity of MatrixCare providers with healthcare stakeholders nationwide.

Because it uses the DIRECT standard required for eligible providers to earn Meaningful Use Incentives, LTPAC providers using MatrixCare DIRECT can help their acute care and physician partners meet CMS requirements for Meaningful Use.
