Historically, it has been very difficult to securely share important and sensitive healthcare information. Until the last decade this responsibility fell primarily on patients – making copies, hand-carrying records, following up on faxes – personally making sure all care team members were kept up-to-date on changes in care.
Diretto is the answer to securely, accurately share patient information across our statewide healthcare community.
With Diretto, you can:
Over the last decade, healthcare providers began to turn to Direct Secure Messaging and other secure communication options to share health information.
A Direct Secure Message (DSM) is different from a regular email because it has an extra layer of security, and because the owner of any DSM account must prove their identity before receiving the account.
In addition, Diretto opens the doors for participants of all types and sizes to participate in the statewide network: patients and doctors, specialists, pharmacists, health plans, care coordinators, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and more. Anyone invested in a patient’s care will be able to communicate safely and get the answers they need through Michigan’s health information network.
MIGateway®, the Medical Information Direct Gateway, combines several MiHIN services in to one centralized tool – an all-in-one solution.
Additional information on MIGateway is available here.
Diretto can also be used by patients (and their family) as a more direct line of communication with their care team members in a secure and approved method for sharing private health information.
