Forum on Achieving Direct Scalable Trust


The Direct Scalable Trust Forum has been rescheduled for November 29-30, 2012. At this time, we are not accepting any new registrants to allow those that previously registered to confirm their attendance. If spots become available, we may choose to open up general registration to the public.

On behalf of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), Deloitte Consulting (Deloitte) invites you to participate in a forum to provide input on how to enable trust across Direct implementations in a scalable (i.e., efficient and effective) manner. In hosting this public forum, we seek to gather information through broad input from industry and federal stakeholders on what policies and practices are needed for widespread Direct scalable trust. Presentation slides from the forum can be found here.

Please see the information below for details. We look forward to your participation!

  • Who Should Attend: We seek to convene a diverse group of participants engaged in real-world Direct implementations such as Certificate Authorities, Registration Authorities, Health Information Service Providers (HISPs), Electronic Health Record (EHR) vendors, providers, federal partners, and ONC grantees.

  • Date and Time: The forum will be 1.5 days – October 31st from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET and November 1st from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET.

  • Location: The forum will be held in Room 800 at the Hubert H. Humphrey Building, 200 Independence Avenue S.W., Washington, DC 20201.

  • Registration Process: Registration is free and on a first-come, first-served basis. Persons interested in attending this forum should register by filling out an electronic registration form.
