DirectTrust Directory Improvement Initiative

Room 2 (Salon G/M)
Attendees will learn the importance of an accurate, complete, and navigable directory for digital end-points and why DirectTrust has undertaken this improvement project. At the same time speakers will place the DirectTrust Directory in the larger context of the potential for a national provider directory. Presenters will provide overview of work completed and improvements to the Directory content validation and searching, demonstrate components of the new reference implementation, as well as provide glimpses of new work focused on making human services endpoints discoverable by providers using the directory.

The expansion of the DirectTrust Aggregated Directory to include human services and community based organizations along with developing standards for human services referrals has the potential to open up communications directly between providers and these organizations, eliminating friction and enabling near-real-time closed loop referral communication.
