Facilitating a comprehensive view of patient information for EHRs, PHRs and HISPs
Today, patients likely visit a number of providers, each of whom may have a medical specialty. This can present a challenge to ensure that medical professionals have visibility and access to important medical information specific to their patients.
The DirectTrust Partnership for Patients Program makes it much easier for patients to share information with their medical professionals at hospitals, medical practices and thousands of other healthcare provider locations.
IdenTrust provide products and services to Electronic Health Record/Electronic Medical Record (eHR/eMR) application providers, Patient Healthcare Record (PHR) application providers and Health Information Service Providers (HISP) enabling their participation in the DirectTrust Partnership for Patients Program. IdenTrust can also provide certificates to prescribers and patients as instructed by eHR/eMR, PHR and HISP participants.
IdenTrust participates in the DirectTrust Partnership for Patients Program as both a Certification Authority (CA) and a Registration Authority (RA), accredited by EHNAC for DirectTrust identity proofing and certificate issuance. IdenTrust DirectTrust Patient Certificates are also cross-certified with the U.S. Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA), meaning they can be relied upon for health information exchange with U.S. Federal healthcare organizations such as the Veterans Administration (VA), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Indian Health Service (IHS) and other agencies.
