Ecosystem


The Communications Workgroup is planning an announcement that describes the various services and solutions springing up around the Direct Project. There is a growing ecosystem of HIE's, health IT vendors and others that are leveraging the Direct Project to support health care stakeholders. This list includes organizations that have made public announcements, as well as organizations that have made self-attestations in the HIT Vendor page. Some organizations may have announced solutions in multiple categories.

If your organization is providing such services or is planning to announce pre- or during HIMSS, please let us know so that we can have the broadest possible message.

If you don't want to spill the beans about a pending announcement, that's OK. Please do let us know, though, that it's coming so you'll get some visibility.
