RESTON, Va. - May 5, 2020 - PRLog -- careMESH, the only service provider to guarantee digital delivery of patient health information to any US-based clinician, today announced that it is making its National Provider Directory available free of charge to state and local public health departments. With the onset of COVID-19 and the critical need for streamlined healthcare provider communications, public health departments and command centers need to identify available medical personnel by location, specialty and other criteria. Facilitating that connection is the careMESH Provider Directory which includes over 5.1M individual practitioner and organizational listings—the most up-to-date and complete directory available in the market—with detailed information about specialties, hospital affiliations, office locations, medical licensing, and more.

"During a time of national crisis, public health officials are often overwhelmed with challenges and lack resources to help streamline patient care and healthcare provider communication. careMESH is committed to our continued innovation for enabling modern digital communications that allow for effective extended care team collaboration," said Dr. Peter S. Tippett, careMESH Founder and CEO. "We are proud to be able to provide our high-quality National Provider Directory to improve healthcare communications between frontline providers and the public health teams who are managing crucial track-and-trace functions. There are no strings attached to this offer and users may keep their access as long as they need it."

The careMESH National Provider Directory is continuously updated from official data sources including National Provider Identifier (NPI), Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS), state and federal databases, and by individual practitioners and organizations who use careMESH services. Built on the HL7® FHIR® standard, careMESH transforms Provider Directory data into records that cross reference practitioners with their affiliated organizations so it can be leveraged by other systems or on a standalone basis in the careMESH application.

Members of the public health community wishing to use the careMESH Directory free of charge are invited to complete and submit the online form to get started. Approval and registration will be completed within 24 hours.
