Use of Direct for System-to-System Communication

There are many systems in the field today that have Direct-enabled endpoints in use to send or accept data for automated workflows at the system level. This model is most commonly used in care coordination, public health, and related applications. We see a lot of continued growth in the number of organizations joining Direct networks to take advantage of the system-to-system transmission enabled by Direct. Adoption Level of 1 understates this use and I encourage ONC to increase the stated Adoption Level to 2 or 3.
