PODCAST: Scott Stuewe, President and CEO of DirectTrust, Discusses Direct Exchange Transaction Momentum
In the following RosettaHealth podcast interview, Scott Stuewe, President and CEO of DirectTrust, discusses how his organization recently announced record growth in the number of DirectTrust network users, addresses and transactions during the first quarter of 2019.
Fueled by a migration of message transmissions to its Accredited Trust Anchor Bundle, and a broader use of its network, DirectTrust recently reported record growth in the number of DirectTrust network users, addresses and transactions during the first quarter of 2019.
Specifically, there were more than 164 million messages sent and received within the DirectTrust network during the first quarter of 2019. This is an increase of almost 54 million messages, or nearly 49 percent, compared with the previous quarter, and three and a half times over the same period last year.
In addition, DirectTrust found that very dynamic use cases – beyond referrals and care coordination – helped to drive this expansive growth. For example, an organization used the Direct network to communicate information about patients who have completed substance abuse programs – allowing the patients to get their drivers licenses.
