Integration between RescueNet Dispatch- Billing and ePCR Presented by: Christopher P. Lavoie Integration Consultant
The RescueNet Suite has several integration points between these three products. The data flow is bi-directional in several areas We will cover the data flow in this presentation along with available configuration options We will also cover some best practices in regards to the Integration. Integration between RescueNet Dispatch-Billing and ePCR
Run Number Company Call Source Call Type Nature of Call(Dispatch Complaint) Response Priority Transport Priority Pick Up address fields Times Data Points Shared between Dispatch and ePCR
Call Times Destination Address Fields Mileages P/U and Drop off Zones Patient Demographics Doctor Information Integration between RescueNet Dispatch-Billing and ePCR
ePCR has the ability to Cancel calls in Dispatch based on Outcomes Odometer Settings are imported based on Import options chosen Primary and Secondary Impressions will import into the complaints field in Tab 2. Patient Info will upload from ePCR but will need to be confirmed in most cases. Data Uploaded from ePCR to Dispatch
Companies Natures Call Types Priorities Crew Members (Can be filtered in Company Crew Members based on Company) Vehicles Call Sources Complaints (Can be filtered) Shared Administration Fields
Doctors Employers Facilities (Can be filtered based on Company) Cancel Reasons Late Reasons (Dispatch Delay Field) Zones(if Applicable) Payors(Can be filtered by Company) Shared Administration Fields
Importing Patient Data There are 3 options to import patient data and trigger a customer confirmation.
Importing Patient Data Option 1 is always on. This will trigger a patient confirmation when an existing customer record is present and there is conflicting information Option 2 and 3 provides additional safeguards to ensure accurate info Why are these Important if using just RescueNet Dispatch?
Merging PCR’s in Tablet PCR Necessary to save a manual PCR back to System Crews should always merge an open manual PCR with a dispatch PCR The merge process will only populate fields that are NULL(Blank) Merging when using Read-Only Fields
Read-Only Fields Times Run Number Benefits of Using Read-Only
Mixed Mode Systems 5.2 introduced the ability to use one dispatch system or a mix of dispatch and non dispatch systems in one ePCR system. Configured in ZDMC on the ePCR services server Can be set by Company
Using Crew Matching Algorithms There are 5 algorithms that can be used 2 Crew Members, Vehicle, and Company 1 Crew Member, Vehicle, and Company 2 Crew Member and Vehicle 1 Crew Member and Vehicle Company and Vehicle Use of Update PCR Crew Info TabletPCR/WebPCR when Mismatch occurs Used when a matching algorithm is used other than 2 crew member, vehicle, and company to ensure the current crew info is applied to every PCR.
Best Practices Confirming Patient Data in Modify Customer Why should you do this? Planning Changes in RescueNet Administration Using Copy/Cancel vs. Unassign/Reassign in CAD
Integration between RescueNet ePCR and Billing ePCR will populate the billing Record with call information and Patient demographic information

Importing Charges Charges can be Imported from ePCR Must be Configured in RescueNet Administration Use Caution in setting these up if using Default Charges

Importing Charges Qualifier Pick List Charges Import a Charge based of an item selected in the PCR for a procedure Can assign an individual charge from Billing or you can create Charge Categories with multiple charges from Billing.
Setting Import Options General Section Primary and Secondary Impressions This will Import into the Complaints field Billing will allow 5 Impressions. Mileages Odometers Loaded Mileage Updating Total Trip Mileage Use Local Customer Default Signature Setting
Setting Import Options TabletPCR Section Charges Can configure based on Outcome will only import charges configured in The Field Data Administration Charges Section Signature Section NPP Information –Based on Signature set as the HIPPA Signature HCFA Box 12 and 13 –Imports the signature designated as the HCFA Signature
Setting Import Options Accident Info Checks Accident Button based on set Causes of Injury Checks Workman's Comp button based on set Causes of Injury
Best Practices Planning Changes in RescueNet Administration Tracking Outstanding PCR’s Combination of List of CAD runs and RescueNet Reporting Confirming Patient Data Establishing Complete Call Rules to Capture information needed for accurate Billing
