About This Webinar
The health care industry has struggled with the authorization process for decades. The CAQH Index estimates that in 2021, 35% of prior-authorization requests were submitted manually. Attendees will learn about a project that automated manual authorization submissions and made emergent inpatient admission authorizations fully electronic. The speakers will also explore lessons learned from implementation, feedback received from early adopters, and realized savings from both parties.
MCG Health interoperability experts will describe savings that health insurance organizations can achieve via automating manual authorizations while also working towards potential regulatory requirements like those included in the rescinded CMS Interoperability and Prior Authorization Rule. In this session, attendees will learn how these potential requirements could be a great opportunity for their organization.
Attendees Will Be Able To
1. Describe the admission authorization workflow at a high level
2. Describe the friction points in the authorization workflow for payers and providers
3. Explain how different metrics fit into an overall return on investment calculation for automating authorizations
