Touchless Prior Authorizations – Driving Administrative Efficiencies and Improving Continuity of Care

Prior authorization (PA) has long been a burden of the healthcare industry. Many providers and payers still use manual processes to both manage and communicate with each other regarding prior authorization before treatment. That process today is tedious and has the potential to delay patient care. It also has time and cost implications for providers and their office staff.
 
Imagine a solution with the ability to streamline the authorization process by implementing a real-time, cloud-based prior authorization portal that would automate requests by using payer-specific guidelines and clinical rules. This method could take minutes, rather than weeks, which can help mitigate costs for authorization-related administrative tasks.
 
Join us for an informational webinar, Touchless Prior Authorizations – Driving Administrative Efficiencies and Improving Continuity of Care," with Cognizant Innovations Director, Nick Bennett, as he guides us through the challenges facing the PA process today and explores transparent automated PA solutions that can drive better outcomes for providers, payers and patients alike.
