Responding to feedback from our patients, RMG is pleased to announce the addition of Prelude Connect, a mobile app and patient portal that allows you to maintain control of your fertility journey every step of the way. Not only can you manage your own appointments, lab work, and communication with your fertility team, but you can also maintain a digital connection with your partner using a new feature called “Partner Linking.” Partner Linking allows patients and partners to establish a relationship in Prelude Connect so that they can easily view each other’s calendar, messages, lab results, documents, and more. To create a partner link, please ensure you have the latest version of Prelude Connect.
Partner linking allows patients and partners to build relationships in the Prelude Connect app. Once a link is created, both parties will be able to view each other’s instance of Prelude Connect. This means:
Both patient and partner must have the Prelude Connect App v1.25.7 or greater and be registered as a patient with the practice to create a link.
On the left menu of Prelude Connect, tap the My Partner option.
Once you submit a Partner Link request, your partner will receive a notification in their Prelude Connect app advising them of your request. Your partner will review the request and choose to accept or decline. If your partner accepts your request, you will be able to see their shared information as well. The partner-linking relationship is bi-directional.
Patients tap the “My Partner” option in the left-side menu Your linked partner will be listed on this screen. Tap on the link to view as your partner.
There is a purple bar on the top of all screens when patients are viewing their partner accounts. To return to your own account, tap this bar to exit your partner account. Alternatively, you can return to the “My Partner” menu selection.
If you send a message from while viewing your partner’s account, the care team will see an “On behalf of” notice with the message.
You can stop sharing your information with your partner at any time. Under the “My Partner” section, patients click the red garbage can icon.
You will receive two warnings before disconnecting accounts. Note that ending a partner relationship in Prelude Connect does not revoke your overall consent to share health information with your partner. You will need to reach out to the clinic separately if you would like to make this change.
