Raintree Systems‘ comprehensive electronic health records/electronic medical records (EHR/EMR) software now features the Kno2 interoperability platform, the company reports.

Key to the Kno2 platform is the ability for clients of Temecula, Calif-based Raintree Systems to securely exchange patient information electronically via fax, direct messaging, or document query within their regular workflows.

In addition, according to a media release from Boise, Idaho-headquartered Kno2, the company has compiled a national directory comprised of the direct messaging addresses of more than 1.2 million providers in the US, making it easy to find providers that will accept this form of communication.

Another feature is Kno2.iQ proprietary data analytics, designed to help Raintree customers to easily identify, via their fax transactions, providers they can connect to electronically.

“Our clients depend on us for leadership and innovation, and to deliver a robust and open system that allows them to participate in the continuum of care effectively,” said Terrence Sims, President and Chief Operating Officer of Raintree, in the release.

“Partnering with Kno2 for electronic patient documentation exchange, in whatever exchange modality providers prefer, is a prime example of our commitment to delivering scalable functionality that meets our clients’ needs – today and tomorrow,” he adds.

Jon Elwell, Chief Executive Officer of Kno2, concurs: “Enabling interoperability at each step of the care continuum is critical to delivering the level of coordinated care that every patient deserves,” he says.

“With many of the bundled payments and other risk-sharing arrangements already in play, and more on the way, the need for this type of solution is clear. Raintree Systems is an established leader in specialty EMRs, and we are excited that they have chosen to partner with Kno2 to bring our next-generation electronic data exchange to their clients,” Elwell continues.
