Secure Exchange Solutions Achieves ONC ACB Certification for SES Direct

Secure Exchange Solutions is among the first health information service providers to complete testing under the recently expanded 2014 Edition health IT certification criteria focused on secure Direct transport

ROCKVILLE, Md.--()--Secure Exchange Solutions announced receipt of the ONC HIT 2014 Edition Release 2 Modular EHR certification for SES Direct. This certification affirms that SES Direct offers the functionality required for our inpatient and ambulatory provider customers to comply with the recently expanded 2014 Edition health IT certification criteria announced by ONC that is focused on secure transports, specifically the §170.314(h)(1) criteria of Direct Messaging standard.

Drummond Group conducted the testing and certification, naming Secure Exchange Solutions as one of the first newly certified products for this criteria. ONCs 2014 Edition Release 2 criteria decouples the creation of summary care content from the secure transport capabilities. With the certification, Secure Exchange Solutions can provide greater flexibility to providers and hospitals in achieving interoperability within their networks.

This certification demonstrates our continued commitment to better serve our customer and partner base, ensuring the ability to leverage the Direct network regardless of existing HIT investments.
