The Direct Secure Messaging System solution is a Government off the Shelf (GOTS) product, originally developed for DoD that is being customized and expanded for use by VA. The Direct Secure Messaging project provides the ability for VA Providers to exchange health information with external partners using the Direct standard. The VA Direct Secure Messaging Webmail Application provides the ability for the electronic exchange of information for Non VA Care Coordination (NVCC) authorization (including any additional health information relevant to the request) from VA to Non-VA care providers. The Webmail Application also allows Non-VA providers to return Direct messages back to the VA. This has the potential to enhance the timely delivery of care and for improving health of Veterans and other beneficiaries. Direct Secure Messaging also provides an Application Programming Interface (API) that allows VA enterprise systems to leverage the existing Direct capability, referred to as Direct as a Service (DaaS). DaaS is designed to be leveraged across multiple use cases, systems and applications for sending health information. Direct Secure Messaging allows application and system administrators to manage access to the API through the API Administration Panel.
