About This Webinar

It’s time to rethink prior authorizations (PA) especially with health care costs continuing to rise. With current PA, providers are constantly asking ‘mother may I’ order this procedure and then waiting days to see if approved or denied, often causing delays on necessary care for patients. The nature of this approach often pits the provider, insurance company, and patient against each other rather than collaborating for the best possible patient outcomes.

Clinical Decision Support (CDS) and artificial intelligence (AI) can help solve the challenges of PA, and Stanson Health offers a tech enabled service that automate and simplifies PA with our radiology benefit management (RBM) solution for both providers and payers.

Attendees Will Learn

  • How to rethink PA with clinical decision support technology being an enabler to transform the process from ‘Mother May I’ to instant approvals that get patients to the care needed faster
  • How smart, helpful clinical decision support can be the future of PA, due to its ability to mine, curate and manage vast amounts of data and guide provider decisions for instant approvals
  • How CDS and AI tech can help automate and simplify PA and RBM for both providers and payers
