IMS MAXIMS and Secure Exchange Solutions unveil partnership to offer proven, secure messaging solutions at Digital Health Rewired

LONDON, UK, March 25, 2019 – IMS MAXIMS, the award-winning provider of digital health transformation programmes and Secure Exchange Solutions (SES), a leading provider of interoperable, cloud-based clinical data exchange technology today announced a joint effort to offer mobile, secure and cost-effective provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient communication solutions to NHS organisations, GP practices and patients.

“The current methods by which clinical, and sometimes urgent information is exchanged is appropriately under attack. Many of the methods currently in use involve unsecure messaging, antiquated faxing and expensive, limited function paging,” stated Shane Tickell, CEO, IMS MAXIMS.

“Recognizing the shortcomings of the current systems in use, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has called on NHS organizations to reach beyond NHSmail for secure communication solutions and signaled the end of archaic fax machines in hospitals and GP practices. Our partnership with Secure Exchange Solutions, a leader in this field, is a direct response to that challenge.”

IMS MAXIMS and SES are immediately making available a simple, secure and seamless communication solution that is already delivering superior security and performance to thousands of healthcare providers and millions of patients and administrators. The solution is called SES DIRECT.

SES DIRECT provides a variety of methods to connect to its interoperable and secure data exchange platform. These include: connecting to SMTP and POP3 email clients (such as Microsoft’s Outlook or Apple’s iPhone eMail) and use of the SES CONNECT Application Programming Interface (API) bundle that provides an accelerated path to seamless integration of secure data exchange functionality with any healthcare application, including:

  • Electronic patient record (EPR) systems
  • Patient portals
  • Clinical data repositories (CDRs)
  • Patient health applications
  • GP systems

“SES DIRECT is based on the DirectTrust framework which supports secure interoperable health information exchange at 140,000 organizations and nearly 2 million secure Direct endpoints,” stated Dan Kazzaz, the founder and CEO of SES. “The flexibility and easy incorporation into existing applications and workflows allows for easy replacement of questionable email systems, fax machines and pagers. We are delighted to partner with IMS MAXIMS to bring these proven solutions to the NHS community.”

Information about SES DIRECT will be available at the IMS MAXIMS Stand C34 at Digital Health Rewired and at:
