Optimize staff efficiency

The prior authorization software automates your manual processes by determining if a pre-authorization is both required and on file with the payer. When payers are integrated, you can submit prior authorization requests directly to them electronically.

Help reduce losses due to write-offs

Use the prior authorization software to automate medical necessity checking as part of registration, and perform clinical code auditing for Medicare outpatient services. Create Advanced Beneficiary Notices with expected charges that allow patients to accept liability prior to care delivery.

Access an audit trail of where the authorization verification was obtained and where the results are stored to help reduce authorization-related claim denials. The prior authorization software also allows you to use multiple payer access strategies to make sure all services are reliably screened and verified against each payer’s pre-authorization requirements.

Automate payer screening and verification

The prior authorization software enables you to monitor payers electronically. Pending pre-authorization decisions with results are automatically posted to your health information system.

If an Advance Beneficiary Notice is required, you can confirm it right within the financial clearance workflow. You can also check clinical codes in real time against Medicare rules and trigger medical necessity checks for Medicare Advantage plans using code-based rules.
