This is a tale of two forces whose combined synergies have created a perfect storm triggering an urgent call to action.

By: Brian Carter, senior director, Cerner

The Direct Project: A modular view - part one


By: Greg Meyer, director, principal architect, Cerner

Over the past month, I've taken on the daunting task of compiling my knowledge of the technical ins and outs of the Direct Project into an online developer's handbook to assist both my Cerner brethren and third party developers who have chosen Cerner Direct as their full-service health information service provider (HISP). As I looked back over the content, I realized there is a lot of material that is useful to a broader audience in the Direct community. So in the spirit of knowledge sharing, I'm sharing my insight (wisdom?) in a series of blog posts.... Read full story

Direct Project Connect-A-Thon: Pushing the line forward


By: Greg Meyer, director, principal architect, Cerner

On December 8th, I again had the privilege to organize and host a Direct Project virtual connect-a-thon. This was the fifth virtual connect-a-thon held by the Direct Project reference implementation workgroup, and the second time we’ve hosted it at Cerner. As an indication of Direct’s increasing momentum, this was the largest connect-a-thon to date, consisting of more than 20 companies, with 13 actively participating HISPs.... Read full story
