Secure Direct Messaging requires trust between two parties exchanging medical records. This trust is established with a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Digital Certificate. Previously, LOA3 (Level of Assurance 3) in person authentication was required to identify proof an individual attached to the certification. While this process is straightforward, the inconvenience of having identification papers notarized has been a barrier to acquiring a PKI certificate.

Who has time to leave the office to get a signature notarized these days in our digital world? I know that I do not have the time to drop everything. Not to mention the scanning, and saving of these documents – just to upload into an email link. I thought we were supposed to “save the Earth” and reduce the use of paper…hmm?

With the incentives in recent years for creating digital healthcare data there are more opportunities than ever to share, exchange and use that data in innovative solutions. These solutions have a lot of promise including improving patient care, managing costs, and helping develop new treatments. However, even though the data may be digital, there is still a major barrier. Actually getting to and/or moving the data remain difficult. (Ok I know that the quality/computability of the data can also be an issue but that is a topic for a different time). The problem usually boils down to the fact the data lives in any number of different systems and managed by different organizations. And though there have been standards around healthcare IT for decades, the actual adoption and/or implementation of those standards had been anything but.

Heading down to Atlanta next week? NitorGroup CEO will be at the #2016PHI on #HIE and #Interoperability
Buff Colchagoff, CEO of Nitor Group will present and discuss on the theme of 'Creating a National Messaging Capability for NHSN Submissions Utilizing Direct' on August 23, 2016, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM. In brief, CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network's (NHSN) national user base requested a secure, automated way to electronically submit their Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) data to NHSN via the Internet. The solution? NHSN Direct: a "self-service" application using HHS's Direct encrypted email protocol.

The Health Level-7 (HL7) standard doesn’t include security. When needing to secure HL7 communication it is accomplished using other secure channels. Two common choices are Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and Secure Shell File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

VPNs provide the ability to join two or more private sub networks as if there were one. This approach has been used time and again due, in part, to the limited impact on existing systems. Said differently, no architectural changes required to existing health IT infrastructure.

SFTP was designed as an extension of SSH2 to provide file transfer capability. SSH2 provides a high level of security and the file transfer capability, unlike regular FTP, follows a strict standard. That is, it's easy to use SFTP for automated processes.

I was at a recent HIT conference, and noted that several speakers talked about interoperability. What each of them failed to say was that transport is a big barrier. Their interoperability emphasis was on the complexity of payload – the data that will be exchanged - ranging from identifying and matching patients, reconciling coding (LOINC –vs- SNOMED), defining minimal datasets, etc. Each of these speakers failed to mention the other component of interoperability (What is interoperability?).
An equally important component of interoperability that is rarely discussed is transport – getting the data from A to B. Historically, transporting data from one system to another has required point to point interfaces, often vendor specific. As data being transported moves from a trickle to a flood (see blog “The Coming Revolution in Health Data”), organizations will find many more connections are needed.

Washington, DC, July 10, 2016: Mobile Medical Imaging LLC (MMIXray), providing mobile medical imaging to non-acute care facilities, has partnered with Nitor Group, to enable their mobile radiology service to receive orders and send results to the provider’s EHRs using Nitor’s universal RosettaHealth platform.
Nitor’s RosettaHealth platform, a cloud-based medical information exchange that connects to virtually any health system, allows MMIXray to easily receive and send information directly to provider EHRs, -- allowing for faster communications, strong security and ease of use for providers.

THE COMING REVOLUTION IN HEALTH DATA — UBIQUITY
Buff Colchagoff, CEO

In 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. A bone scan indicated that the cancer may have metastasized to the bone. A surgery was scheduled to remove and biopsy part of a rib in question. The surgeon was to review the bone scan before surgery, but he didn’t. That information didn’t get to him, and he removed another part of my rib.

Unfortunately, there are real costs to the “gap in health information exchange” (see ONC Data Brief No. 20). It goes beyond just a patient’s access to records -- it affects the whole health care system. It’s not uncommon for a test or procedure to be redone because the results aren’t available in a care setting. Hospital’s are trying to lower 30 day readmission rates that currently range from 8% to 18%. A major cause of readmissions is the lack of coordination between Hospital and PCPs (see HCUP Statistical brief #199). And yes, most patients don’t access their health records online, either.

Nitor Group's CEO Buff Colchagoff to speak at the 2016 Informatics Conference in Atlanta, GA. He'll discuss the importance of Creating a National Messaging Capability for NHSN Submissions Utilizing Direct.

The solution? NHSN Direct: a "self-service" application using HHS's Direct encrypted email protocol." 2016 Informatics Conference aims to provide a forum for new and seasoned public health, healthcare, and IT professionals to exchange experiences, ideas, and strategies. http://ow.ly/D7lh301YOHS
