Guidance on Deploying MU2 Secure Transport

The Meaningful Use Transport has been a struggle for many. Not just technology, which I cover. But also operationally, and administratively. The EHR Association has released a white paper that I would recommend. I worked this paper as the deployment of Direct is full of buzzwords, including my most hated buzzword 'HISP'. Please give this paper a chance to help explain how to deploy Direct in a way that is a positive stepping stone, not a terminal disease.

The EHR Association’s Standards & Interoperability Workgroup has just published the Practical Guidance to Implement Meaningful Use Stage 2 Secure Health Transport for Certification and Meaningful Use document . 
This guidance document analyzes the regulation and explains the flexibility offered both to EHR vendors in achieving certification, but more importantly to our customers in leveraging this flexibility while successfully attesting to this component of the meaningful use criteria. This useful guide is being made available to all industry stakeholders, and can be found here.
