1. A system comprising:
a network interface in communication with an image sharing server configured to receive an information object and metadata, the metadata identifying one or more trusted recipients;
a repository, configured to communicate with the image sharing server, and configured to store the information object;
computer instructions that when executed automatically map the metadata to one or more electronic addresses corresponding to the one or more trusted recipients;
a processor configured to generate a universal resource locator for accessing the information object stored in the repository, and to acquire the one or more electronic addresses of the trusted recipients based on the metadata;
the processor in conjunction with a secure messaging module configured to insert the universal resource locator into an electronic message addressed to the one or more electronic addresses of the trusted recipients, and send the electronic message, using a secure email gateway, with the universal resource locator, to the one or more electronic addresses of the trusted recipients, the electronic message being secure and sent with a MU2 EHR status including administrative control, wherein the universal resource locator in the electronic message is selectable by a user to access the information object;
the image sharing server:
receiving, in response to the selection of the universal resource locator, a request for the information object based on the universal resource locator in the electronic message,
acquiring the information object signified by the universal resource locator, and
providing the information object over a communications path for display to the user, wherein the providing of the information object over the communications path occurs over a different pathway or channel than the electronic message to at least avoid an attachment size limitation.
