Direct Secure Messaging

Direct Secure Messaging (Direct) is known as a method for sending and receiving referrals and transitions of care. But when implemented correctly, it can be so much more. It provides a trusted, secure and widely deployed mechanism for the exchange of health information that’s as easy as email or fax.

Any workflow. Any payload.

With Kno2, Direct Secure Messaging can support any electronic exchange workflow, including referrals and transitions of care, fax replacement, and transport of structured payloads containing important patient information such as C-CDAs, HL7 V2 messages or FHIR JSON resources. Kno2 leverages Direct to eliminate expensive fax infrastructure and point-to-point interfaces, simplifying providers’ abilities to share data with providers across the street or across the country.
