SOAP Web Services is a Service Oriented Architecture-based strategy for enabling two systems to interoperate securely.

PHINMS is a CDC-developed software for secure public health data exchange.

Manual upload within application requires the provider to sign into the application and upload the file directly.

SFTP secure file transport protocol is an internet standard for point-to-point interactive or “batched” secure file transfer.

Direct Secure Messaging is a simple, secure, scalable, standards-based way for participants to “push” encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the internet.
