This demonstration utilizes two HISPs: HealthBridge and Redwood MedNet. Each participant originates one Direct Message and receives one Direct Message. For "bonus points" both HISPs will attempt to support Direct Messaging from iPads, and Redwood MedNet will attempt to sign a health record release form on an iPad (not working yet).
