California Direct is a simple and safe way to share health information with the right person at the right time. Based on federal standards, Direct enables communication among providers, care team members and patients, to improve care coordination. This service can easily be integrated into existing referral patterns and practice workflows while significantly reducing faxing, scanning, and re-keying of data.


“California Direct fills a critical gap in the HIE landscape in our State, offering a low-cost service that Providers can adopt to share data to improve patient care, especially in rural regions where there isn’t a community HIE alternative today.”

-Pamela Lane, CHHS Deputy Secretary for HIE
