DataMotion, a Morristown, N.J.-based provider of cloud data delivery solutions, has announced the arrival of new software which aims to allow healthcare industry organizations to integrate with the Direct Project. The Direct Project, created as part of the Nationwide Health Information Network, was created to specify a simple, secure, scalable, standards-based way for providers to send encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the Internet.
DataMotion’s product, DataMotion Direct, aims to allow healthcare organizations and providers to comply with Meaningful Use Stage 2 data transfer requirements established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). DataMotion says it is available on a subscription basis as a hosted service or as a premise-based software license. It’s also available for systems integrators and vendors with APIs for rapid integration into health information exchanges (HIEs), patient portals, and other clinical systems.
Grand Prairie, Texas-based Rainbow Children's Clinic was the victim of a ransomware attack on its IT systems in August, affecting more than 33,000 patients, according to multiple news media reports this week.
