Attendees will learn the importance of an accurate, complete, and navigable directory for digital end-points and why DirectTrust has undertaken this improvement project. At the same time speakers will place the DirectTrust Directory in the larger context of the potential for a national provider directory. Presenters will provide overview of work completed and improvements to the Directory content validation and searching, demonstrate components of the new reference implementation, as well as provide glimpses of new work focused on making human services endpoints discoverable by providers using the directory.

Today, Diameter Health’s technology has unmatched speed and scale. They have ingested millions of patient records for upwards of 160 million individuals to date through our Upcycling Data™ technology. They owe much of that scalability to their HIE partners.
