March 11, 2008 - PRLog -- Temecula, Calif. and Pittsburgh, Pa.— In an innovative partnership, Raintree Systems Inc. and MDnetSolutions, LLC, two healthcare industry service providers, have come together to create one fully-integrated system for the bariatric practice, free-standing surgery center and hospital-based surgery department that seamlessly manages all office and patient activities.  Raintree Surgery Manager for Bariatrics automates all aspects of bariatric practice management into one fully-integrated solution.  It manages patient leads from initial contact, through seminar and the pre-op approval process, to surgery and post-operative processes, while handling billing, scheduling, insurance verification/reimbursement, electronic medical records and outcomes management. It also provides an automated feed into the Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal Database™ (BOLD™) for compliance with the Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence (BSCOE) requirements—an important feature in the bariatric industry.

Previously, the bariatric market had to either depend on their IT departments to build an interface between two or more practice systems or depend on staff to handle a vast amount of double-data entry to manage the business.  The creation of Raintree Surgery Manager for Bariatrics offers the bariatric industry a way to electronically manage their entire business and network of locations through one standalone application, while seamlessly feeding all outcomes data into the BOLD system(http://www.surgicalreview.org/paperless.aspx).

“We realized early on that Raintree Surgery Manager powered by our workflow management module, Raintree Practice PrinciplesTM, created a unique and differentiating product for the surgery industry.  Our alliance with MDNetSolutions and our integration with their LeadTracker™ software produced a business management solution that uniquely serves the bariatric surgery industry,” said Terrence Sims, Chief Operating Officer at Raintree Systems.  “We saw a need for this type of collaboration and we pulled our teams together to create the most comprehensive and feature-rich solution for the bariatric industry.”

The partnership between Raintree Systems, with its custom patient management/electronic medical records software development experience, and MDnetSolutions, a custom bariatric software and marketing solutions company, brings best-in-class healthcare management and bariatric-centric solutions to a niche market that was in need of an industry-specific tool.

Rich Rosenzweig, President of MDnetSolutions, said that the partnership of both companies’ product offerings and technology, along with the bariatric process management experience of our team members, has contributed to the highly-functional, all-inclusive end result. “By identifying the key functionality that was needed by our existing clients and combining the technology and tools that both companies offer, we were able to design one complete, all-inclusive solution that is customizable, scaleable and affordable.”

“While developing our bariatric surgery center model, our goal was to find an integrated solution to manage operations and compliance requirements from intake to discharge,” said Joseph Venturelli, Chief Information Officer of NewHope Bariatrics.  “We were less than successful in our quest and most of the solutions we had found barely covered half of our identified needs—until we met with Raintree Systems and MDnetSolutions.  They worked closely with the NewHope team to fast track the development, customization and deployment of their products into an integrated solution that is now an indispensible solution set for all of our surgery centers across the United States,” Venturelli said.  “Since initial implementation, both Raintree and MDnetSolutions have gone beyond our expectations in continuing to hone the solution set and help us maintain our high standards for clinical excellence,” he added.
