You’ve heard about it on Twitter. You’ve read the blog posts. Maybe you’ve even tiptoed through the wiki or heard it mentioned in presentations by ONC. But whether you’re a doctor, a programmer, a manager, or a patient, you probably still haven’t wrapped your head around all the many aspects of the Direct Project. There are plenty of questions:
- What’s this Direct Project thing all about?
- How will it be used?
- Why was it created?
- What does it mean for the health information exchange I’m doing today?
- How does it relate to the Nationwide Health Information Network?
And now, there are plenty of answers, in the form of our Direct Project Overview. Aimed at all audiences, the Direct Project Overview seeks to provide just that: a brief introduction to the Who, What, How, and Why of the Direct Project. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to the Direct Project and to point you to the areas where you'll want to learn more.
