Siemens HISP Technology Enables Secure Health Information Messaging

Nov 01, 2013

Today, Siemens Healthcare announced that Siemens MobileMD® health information exchange (HIE) technology has been expanded to include a health information service provider (HISP) solution, enabling secure electronic collaboration among healthcare providers and patients. The technology can help streamline transitions between care settings by enabling a fast, accurate, and secure exchange of private health information between each provider contributing to a patient’s care. Applying standards for authenticated, encrypted data transmission defined by The Direct Project, secure messages can be delivered by the MobileMD Clinical Portal, MobileMD Patient Portal, or third-party products that comply with Direct messaging standards.


“HISP Direct secure messaging standards play an important role in achieving truly coordinated care, because they reconcile two potentially conflicting objectives: easy, open exchange of health information, and the protection of patient privacy,” said Tanja Gustafson, Senior Director, MobileMD HIE, Siemens Healthcare. “With the Siemens approach to facilitating this communication through the HIE, providers can now realize more benefits from healthcare IT solutions that support efforts to improve care efficiency and quality.”


Providers using HISP solutions like the new MobileMD HISP can send rich clinical content to any provider using other Direct-accredited HISPs across the United States. For clinical users, the process is as simple as sending an email with an attachment.


The MobileMD HISP service is immediately available to all healthcare providers with a Direct-compatible healthcare IT solution.
