Note: Organizations that are on Raintree auto deployments will have access to the improved Raintree-Integrated HEP soon. If you are a Raintree Enterprise user, contact your internal Raintree team to determine your release date.
When you integrate MedBridge with your EMR, you streamline your workflow and get to spend more time with your patients, not patient records.
To make the integration experience even better for Raintree EMR users, we’re excited to announce an improved EMR Integration. With this improved integration, you’ll be able to
- Support patients with multiple episodes of care allowing concurrent HEP episodes for different issues.
- Streamline clinician workflows by mapping Raintree case IDs to MedBridge episodes.
- View Raintree patient MRNs within RTM Reporting.
- Automatically update patient demographic and contact data in the MedBridge patient record when updates are made in Raintree.
In this article, we’ll walk you through all these features and more.
Multiple Episodes of Care
Multiple episodes of care provide clinicians the ability to have more than one active episode per patient. Patients who are being treated for multiple conditions or by different providers (ex. PT & OT) can have a separate HEP for each condition and provider, all managed from a single patient profile.
Patients can access all their episodes with a single login via the patient portal or MedBridge GO app, making it easy to manage all their rehab needs in one place..
Accessing Existing Raintree Cases in MedBridge
With the launch of our improved Raintree integration, each case within your Raintree patient record will be automatically mapped to a MedBridge episode.
When you launch MedBridge from an existing Raintree case, you’ll be taken directly to the MedBridge episode mapped to that case. Once you’re in MedBridge, you can make updates to a home program, share it with your patient, and more.
If a Raintree case cannot be automatically mapped to a MedBridge episode, you’ll be prompted to map the case to an episode the first time you access it.
When you launch MedBridge from a Raintree case that has not been mapped to an episode, a pop up will appear, and we’ll suggest an episode for you to map to this Raintree case. If it’s correct, select Connect to Current Episode and continue to the HEP Builder.
If it’s not the correct episode, you can select Create New Episode and start building a new program. When you save the program, you’ll be asked to enter details about the patient episode, including the treatment category, discipline, and more.
Creating New Cases
When you create a new case within Raintree and open MedBridge, if there are no unmapped episodes for this patient, a new episode will be automatically created for you. You’ll be taken to the HEP Builder where you can search for exercises and add them to the program builder until you’ve built the perfect program. When you save the program, you’ll be asked to enter details about the patient episode, including the treatment category, discipline, and more.
Note that once your organization enabled the improved Raintree-integrated HEP, you cannot create episodes in MedBridge. You will need to create any new programs by first creating a case in Raintree.
Patient MRN and Demographic Updates
With the launch of our improved Raintree integration, the patient’s Raintree MRN will now be passed to the MedBridge database. This allows the MRN to appear in RTM reporting, making your RTM billing processes even simpler.
Raintree will also pass demographic data to the MedBridge database, so if you update your patient’s name, phone number, or email in Raintree, it will automatically update in MedBridge.
