Re: Embedded HISP an advantage
Dr. Kibbe said that some of the HISPs that belong to DirectTrust also operate RAs and CAs. You'd have to ask him how many do.

Certificate Authorities
You had mentioned that beyond HISPs, Certificate and Regulatory authorities are pursuing accreditation. Can you discuss how many HISPs seem to provide their own CA and RA capabilities versus how many are partnering with third-party CAs and RAs? It seems that many become accredited for all three which would imply they have their own internal CA and RA capabilities.

Re: Embedded HISP an advantage
The issue here is not whether a HISP is cloud-based, although all of them probably are. It's whether athenahealth's HISP can communicate with the HISPs linked to other vendors' EHRs. Since athenahealth is getting its HISP accredited, its users will be able to exchange Direct messages with clinicians that use other EHRs.

Embedded HISP an advantage
Is there an advantage in having the HISP embedded in a cloud service, as with Athenahealth. Seems like that's one less thing for the doctor or other customer of the service to manage.

Can't think what the drawbacks would be, but are there any?
