Working With Existing Platforms … The Ras API


Dbtech has always given our customers the tools needed to simplify burdensome workflows and save time and money. This has been our goal since the early 90’s when we initially developed Ras to help customers reduce paper expenses and manual distribution methods.

Ras has changed significantly from those early days, but our core principles have never changed; easy-to-use solutions that are simple to manage and present information to users in the best possible way.

Administrative simplification and intuitive user interfaces have led dbtech to develop the Ras API.

Customers expect enterprise content in Ras be accessible to users and platforms with the least amount of manual steps possible. The problem is that many applications do not have the ability to store images or to import them from foreign platforms. The other problem is that many platforms may come delivered with their own document management solution, leaving your IT staff with three or more different platforms to support.

Your users want access to the insurance card, driver’s license and other documents without leaving the screens they are currently viewing.

Just click a button to view all images for a patient.

The Ras API enables transparency by integrating Ras functionality into all of your existing platforms. Here is an illustration. A user may spend ninety percent of their day working accounts in your financial application, but for 5 percent of the day they need access to supporting documents like a scanned waiver, insurance card or payer verification document.

Until now, customers would login to Ras, find the patient account and open the document needed.


The Ras Application Programming Interface, or Ras API, allows for improved workflows. While a user works a patient account in your primary financial application, they launch the Ras API with a singular click of a button. The Ras API is designed to know which patient you are viewing and which documents are needed based on the screen from which it is launched. This means that needed documents are just a click away with no navigating, no searching and no additional logins and passwords.

Users feel like the images are stored directly in their applications.


Ras API will work with Siemens, Meditech, McKesson, Cerner, EPIC, NextGen and Keane. The fact is that the Ras API will work with ANY and ALL commercial applications as well as home-grown applications and websites.
