Structure for capture of addressI support the use of Project US@ for the capture of all address to standardize the process regardless of what context the address is captured. Standard capturing of this fundamental element will support innovation across platforms regardless of EHR or HISP while supporting processes that will ease the administrative burden of reconciliation of directories to send Direct Secure Messages by facilities or providers.
