I'm a doctor, my medical society is embracing SSI, what are they telling me to do?

This is not hypothetical. The Massachusetts Medical Society is inviting presentations about SSI.

As a doctor, I have:
  • NPI (a national provider identifier, is useful for getting paid)
  • DEA number (allows me to sign prescriptions for controlled substances)
  • username allows me to sign-in to a patient's health record
I've been told that SSI will let me sign things and authenticate into systems in a way that is more convenient, more secure, and offers more services to my patients - if I add SSI to my iPhone.

I hope that my medical society will suggest what to do or maybe even offer a member benefit that gets me started.
