TEMECULA, Calif., Nov. 11 , 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Raintree Systems and SnapMD are proud to announce the development of an integrated telehealth software solution to give healthcare providers a new and efficient way to interact and provide care to their patients. Raintree Systems is the first EMR software to incorporate a telehealth solution directly into an EMR & PM software in order to facilitate deeper and timelier patient/provider interaction. This new solution will revolutionize how physical therapist deliver care and interact with their patients by providing a single source of connectivity, clinical documentation and billing. 

This new partnership will allow healthcare providers to use a world-class telehealth solution directly from their Raintree EMR & PM software, thereby increasing provider care and responsiveness while reducing care costs without reducing effectiveness. 

"Our commitment to providing highly valuable, technology-centric solutions to the physical therapy industry motivated us to take the lead in becoming the first to offer a telemedicine integrated EMR. We believe this solution will empower therapist to better engage their patients, improve the standards of care, and position them for the growing trend of consumerism within the healthcare community," says Terrence Sims, President & COO of Raintree Systems.

Provider adoption of telehealth solutions has lagged due to the difficulty of using existing telehealth services and because all other telehealth services are not integrated into the EMR & PM software that they currently use to document and bill for delivery of care. Raintree Systems' and SnapMD solution encourages provider adoption of telehealth by seamlessly integrating telehealth tools directly into the EMR & PM software that they use on a daily basis, thus allowing simplified clinical documentation and billing.

Recent HHS guidelines and recommendations encourage provider use of telehealth service to increase care and reduce care-delivery times and cost. Congress has also provided legislation to encourage Medicare providers to use telehealth solutions with the assurance that reimbursement rates would not be changed or reduced. 

Additionally, the APTA will be sponsoring a webinar where you can earn CEUs, learn more about the relevance of this solution for the industry, and how you can prepare to fully leverage this opportunity as it evolves.
