Secure Messaging v1.0

The Secure Messaging initiative is concerned primarily with the secure transfer of clinical information among care providers. As such, the focus is more on the transport and security of messages (the carriage) rather than the structure and terminology of the message (the content). 
Message contents are defined by the Agency’s Clinical Terminology and Information initiative.
