Even More Thunder for Direct

More great news --- Dr. Halamka and his incredible engineers
went from zero-to-Direct in about a day of actual work ... and just fourteen days
from the first conversation about the possibility of hooking up BIDMC to
HealthVault using Direct S/MIME exchange. As he posted
on his blog this morning
, John's CCR and CCD are happily ensconced in his
HealthValut account and ready for action --- woo hoo!

Also --- Rich Elmore and Arien Malec have put together a
great paper
talking about Direct and describing the awesome demonstrations that
are going to be shown on the floor at HIMMS. I will be there throughout the
show and am really looking forward to talking about the role of HealthVault and
the patient in all of this great work. Can't wait!

PS. I still can't believe that I am sitting here 35,000 feet
in the air and posting to my blog. Welcome
to the Future
indeed, Mr. Paisley.
