Rockville, MD, July 18, 2012 — Secure Exchange Solutions and the Health Information Technology Division of the VI Department of Health launched this week a webinar series on Direct communications for healthcare providers.

The webinar series is hosted by the Virgin Islands Department of Health along with Secure Exchange Solutions (SES), a certified Health Information Service Provider (HISP) that is providing the Direct exchange solution for the Virgin Islands Health Information Exchange (HIE).

The series will cover use cases in provider, hospital and laboratory environments, integrating Direct into current workflows and systems, using Direct for behavioral health and immunization reporting, and signing up and using Direct communications.

“Our first webinar this week provided background information on Direct and how it helps providers communicate more efficiently,” said Dan Kazzaz, CEO of Secure Exchange Solutions. “Direct- complaint products are being rolled out nationwide as healthcare providers realize the opportunity for improving care and lowering costs through electronic communications, and we are excited to take part in this educational series for providers in the U.S. Virgin Islands as they prepare to implement Direct.”
