We’ve heard from many of you that you like to place the same lab test orders again and again. This makes total sense to us, too - for example, checking in on a patient’s gut health requires an initial test followed by another test after a certain time period.
To help make repeat orders as simple as possible, we first launched custom bundles - allowing you to create, save, and name any lab test bundle of your choosing from multiple lab providers for easy one-click ordering.
But, now, we’re making ordering the same tests over and over again even more convenient!
This feature is perfect for those who want to order the same tests for a patient, but haven't scheduled them in advance.
Simply go into your dashboard, click the “order again” dropdown and select “order now”
You’ll then be brought to the checkout page, where your patient’s information and tests will already be loaded and you can checkout as normal. As easy as pie.
Do you have a specific date in mind for when you need to re-run a test? If so, this feature is for you.
Simply go into your dashboard, click the “order again” dropdown and select “schedule order”. You’ll be brought to this calendar where you can schedule the order for a future date.
After you schedule the order, it will appear in your dashboard as a reminder. You can edit or re-schedule from there if something changes!
If you’ve elected to pay for the order, then the card on file will be charged on the date the order is scheduled for. Your patient will receive notification that the test has been ordered, as usual.
If you’ve designated your patient as the payer, then your patient will receive an e-mail as usual asking for payment.
You’ll now be able to download requisition forms for paid orders right from the Rupa portal for these labs: Alletess, Bostonheart, Diagnostic Solutions, Spectracell, DUTCH, US Biotek, Vibrant America, iGeneX, Quicksilver, Access Med Labs, Cyrex, ELISA-Act, and Precision Point.
Note that some of our partner labs don’t offer digital requisition forms (Genova, GPL, Doctor’s Data, ZRT). If you need the req for these labs, please message our team!
If you are in network with Medicare, you can now order the GI-MAP using Medicare through Rupa! The GI-MAP by Diagnostic Solutions is completely covered ($0) by Medicare (Part B). You’ll now be able to select this option from the “Insurance Option” drop-down when placing an order. (Note: right now, we’re only able to accept Medicare or Cash Pay for GI-MAP, unfortunately no other insurance options are available.)
We’ve heard from many of you that our lab test catalog is the easiest place to search, filter and select testing for your patients. Now, we’ve taken that one step further - as of today, you can start orders right in the catalog! 🚀 (Bonus Points: we also now show you shipping & turnaround times for each test right on the “more details” card!)
At Rupa, we started out offering drop-shipped kits for all labs. As of today, you can now use Rupa for your In-Office Kits from 6 of our labs - meaning you can hand a kit to a patient in person, and we’ll still handle the payment, instructions, and follow-ups, specimen issues, and results! 🎉
As we’ve grown, we’ve worked to support many of you who are operating partially in-person, or will eventually be fully in-person again. Our goal at Rupa is to support you whether in-person or virtual, for the long-term!
We also know that some kits are better when handed over in person -- i.e. for drawing blood samples on the spot, getting timing right with hormone panels, etc.
We now offer In-Office kits for:
This has been a long desired feature to minimize the questions you’re getting from your patients! Many patients reach out to check on the status of their tests. Now, patients will get an email from Rupa when samples arrive at the lab. This email will also share the estimated turnaround time. Scheduling a follow-up is now one less item on your plate!
Note: we are only able to share sample information for labs that have this information available - some of our partner labs don’t, unfortunately! :(
Patients sometimes have to hold off on completing a test - because of test preparation, timing, financial reasons, etc. They can now pause an order, and get automatically reminded by Rupa when it’s time to complete the test. If your patient decides to pause their order, we will let you know in the patient’s Order Events in your dashboard.
You can now search and add ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes to every patient order in seconds. This will help your patients create Superbills they can submit to their insurance for reimbursement. It’ll now also be easier to place Genova orders with insurance - with ICD codes right in the ordering portal to select!
We know this has been a practitioner favorite and highly requested lab for a while. We’re so excited to now be partnering with Precision Point to bring you their suite of lab testing. Precision Point is known for Allergy, Sensitivity, and Intestinal Permeability testing. Learn about Precision Point's areas of expertise here.
While you’ve always been able to order add-on tests with Rupa, we now make this easier than ever. When adding a test to your cart, you’ll see the add-ons available right in the ordering panel. You’ll also be able to see add-ons when you click the i (info) on each lab test in the ordering page.
ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies is known for their lymphocyte response assay for detecting delayed hypersensitivities. We've heard from many of you how useful their testing is and are excited to have them on board Rupa! You'll see ELISA/ACT in your catalog and ordering portal when you login.
