ZirMed, a leading health information connectivity and management solutions company, today announced a new, secure, HIPAA-compliant secure messaging feature for Clinical Link, the company’s cloud-based communications platform. This enhancement enables ZirMed users to exchange messages and clinical documents with any provider organization in the U.S., regardless of an organization’s EHR or practice management system.
Clinical Link secure messaging helps providers meet the need for HIPAA-compliant physician communications without the delays associated with faxing, scanning and lost paperwork. The solution also supports provider organizations in their goal to meet Meaningful Use Stage II requirements, enabling seamless transitions of patient care by facilitating digital document exchange across care locations.
“Our clients are already using Clinical Link to send and receive referrals, so adding secure messaging that allows provider organizations to have a single platform for all clinical communications was a natural evolution,” said Ric Sinclair, ZirMed head of product. “All of our clients, especially those that are moving toward ACO and other value-based care models, will have a new way to easily and securely share medical information, enabling seamless transitions of care.”
The cloud-based solution analyzes an organization’s claims history and recommends connections to broaden a provider’s referral base. ZirMed users receive email alerts when messages are waiting, as well as when a digital package is viewed by a recipient; allowing users to confirm receipt without spending time on the phone.
