As a Resource and Patient Management System (RPMS)® user or administrator, you know the system is reliable. At the same time, RPMS lacks efficient automation and a user-friendly interface. Luckily, you can make your RPMS experience easier and more efficient with Databound. Enter: Databound Healthcare Solutions’ EMUE.

One group of facilities that Databound has unique experience helping enhance patient care are those that serve American Indian and Alaskan Native Communities. EMUE in particular makes it easier for Tribal Health facilities to use RPMS. EMUE automates record updating and improves system-to-system communication for electronic health record systems.

Why User-Friendliness Matters

Since RPMS is used at most IHS facilities as an integrated solution for clinical, business practice, and administrative information, RPMS dictates workflow and efficiency. If the process is antiquated or the learning curve is too steep, the hospital’s efficiency will suffer. That’s the power of using EMUE. When used together, EMUE’s user interface (UI) makes RPMS easier to learn, understand, and use.


This is a step-by-step process of how EMUE can work with RPMS:

  • You start with a script.
  • You then select the ‘Run’ button to start the script.
  • EMUE logs into RPMS—just like a user does.
  • Once logged in, EMUE begins to run the process. This happens very quickly and accurately.
  • As the script processes, it can retrieve data, update records, and download reports. These reports can be combined into more useful reports later.
  • When the script is complete, EMUE logs out of RPMS and closes itself.

4 Ways EMUE Automates RPMS

Let’s look at four specific ways EMUE can automate RPMS: create and schedule reports; automate monthly, quarterly, and annual report generation; combine information from systems inside and outside RPMS; and update records in RPMS. This automation saves time—giving teams the capacity to work on projects that are normally pushed aside.

Create and schedule reports from RPMS. Tribal Health facilities save time because they can easily assemble reports from multiple RPMS pages.

Automate report generation. EMUE retrieves and aggregates RPMS data for single or scheduled reports. This makes data more accessible. This automation saves valuable employee time traditionally spent manually creating one-off reports for AR summaries, insurance reports, clinic financials, claim reports, and more.

Combine information from internal and external systems. EMUE combines information from business systems and databases that track data outside the RPMS system. Users can consolidate data between modules and share it with many different groups, saving employee time and resources.

Update records in RPMS. Users can update records in RPMS. This includes records like claims (i.e. posting payments) and insurance information.

The Value of Automating RPMS With EMUE

Rather than transition to a paid revenue cycle management software, IHS facilities can continue to use RPMS and leverage EMUE as a support system. EMUE makes continued use of RMPS more manageable for Tribal Health facilities.
