RAS

The ultimate companion to Epic, Cerner and other EHRs

Studies show that up to 80% of hospital data still lives outside of the EHR, both in other systems and on paper. Healthcare employees need access to this data and often spend 5 times as much time finding the data as they do reading it. Other studies show that up to 20% of paper documents are misplaced with about 7% of them lost. This not only wastes time and costs money, it compromises patient safety.

The Easiest Solution

Ras is the easiest and most cost effective way to take control of all of your documents and data. Ras can automatically capture and store reports, forms, EDI, images, PDFS, spreadsheets, documents and other data from all your other applications. Unlike other systems, Ras will automatically identify what it captures, allowing you to store & access content with no user intervention.

Secure and HIPAA Compliant

Ras provides a comprehensive set of security controls, allowing you to control not only who can access information but also what actions they can take. Want to allow a user to view a document but not print? No problem. A full audit trail is kept of every action every user takes to help you determine who accessed particular information, for example to help process a release of information request. Naturally all data is encrypted at a level exceeding HIPAA requirements.

Automate Your WorkFlows

Ras goes beyond traditional document management by allowing you to have the manual tasks that a user does with a particular document completely automated. This not only saves considerable time and money; it also improves accuracy and boosts employee morale. Some of the Automation Workflows available are listed below:

Data Extraction

If your users key data from reports into spreadsheets or databases, you’ll find that this Ras automation will save time and money while also eliminating costly re-keying errors. Once you specify the source report and which information you want, the process will happen automatically each time a new report is captured by Ras.

AutoPrint

For those users who require paper reports, AutoPrint automatically prints sections or complete reports to any network printer. Eliminates the need to manually print forms that must be printed on a regular basis. Most importantly, once the workflow is established the specified forms are printed automatically without user intervention.

eMail Workflows

Save the time and expense of shipping or faxing reports. This automates the process of sending selected reports to one or more designated recipients with criteria and scheduling that you specify. Once set up, every new report that matches your criteria will be emailed automatically with no user intervention. Converts data to a uniform PDF viewer with built-in password and recipient security with all encryption and security as required by HIPAA relating to the protection of PHI.

Integration

This automation allows you to use data from any system to update any other system. For example, this can be configured to extract data from a report, process the data, update existing external databases and then execute a report on that data. All of this can happen automatically each time a new report is available. And with full scripting capability, the possibilities are nearly endless.

X12

Converts and archives all 837 transmissions and 835 receipts into a user-friendly, searchable database. Allows users to automatically capture, query, view, print and store transactions in an easy-to-read format. Eliminates the need for conversion programs to audit and query data.

HL7

Need to work with HL7 interface transactions? This automation can capture and deconstruct these transactions to help support many different types of workflows. You can even reformat these HL7 messages into readable documents which can be captured back into Ras.

Report Splitting

This automation will split reports into separate subreports by whatever criteria you specify. For example, an accounts receivable report can be split by payor and distributed to collection personnel such that each only gets the payors assigned to them.

Ras Forms

Captures commonly used forms such as UB04s and CMS 1500s. This allows users the ability to perform searches & access data for any time period. It also helps billing personnel to quickly access patient data to answer billing questions from customers. Many hospitals use this when switching EHRs to archive these forms from the old system.
