DataMotion, a provider of secure information exchanges for businesses, has recently unveiled a cloud service called the DataMotion Direct, which allows for secure, encrypted transfer of e-mail, documents and images that include health information.
Offered as either a hosted offering or on-premises, the service allows healthcare organizations to exchange data securely while integrating the federal Direct Project messaging protocols and complying with the meaningful-use incentive program.
"We've taken the experience in secure transport of information and incorporated the Direct Project into that core data delivery offering," Bob Janacek, DataMotion's co-founder and chief technology officer, said in a statement..
Direct Project is a standards-based system in healthcare used for sending encrypted messages amongst these types of health-related organizations, providers and patients. Some companies currently leveraging it include electronic health record software companies, medical device manufacturers and data transfer service providers such as DataMotion.
DataMotion helps reduce the cost and complexity of delivering health information electronically. It enables the exchange of files of up to two GB and thus removes data traffic bottlenecks that occur in health information exchanges. The cloud service also allows doctors to transfer X-rays or other medical images and specialized files through the Direct Project.
Companies, with the help of DataMotion Direct are able to meet data transfer requirements of Stage 2 of the meaningful-use incentive program for EHRs. The service can be accessed by users through a mobile device or can be integrated directly into their e-mail client.
