Electronic health records vendors Meditech and Vitera are the latest software companies to contract for secure clinical messaging services through the nationwide network of Surescripts.

Best known for its electronic prescription network, Surescripts rolled out secure clinical messaging after acquiring Kryptiq, whose technology is based on the federally developed Direct Project protocols, in 2012. Other users of the service include Rite Aid, Merge Healthcare, NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Epic Systems Corp., GE Healthcare, Inofile, MEDENT, NewCrop, SCI Solutions, SOAPware, and Greenway Medical, which Vitera is acquiring.

Surescripts also in August announced secure clinical messaging contracts with 19 health information exchanges or health information organizations.
