Automated Prior Authorizations: Data Exchange
8.16.2017 by Availity
Availity Access provides a glimpse into the people behind our products. It features commentary on challenges facing the healthcare industry and how Availity can help providers and health plans better share healthcare information.
In the first of our four-part vlog series on automated prior authorizations, Mohammed Ahmed, Availity’s Vice President of Authorizations Sales Enablement, discussed the three key steps of the prior authorization process. In our latest video, he explains why an automated solution must address pre-certification specialists’ biggest headache: manual re-keying of data.
None of us like re-keying the same data into two different systems, and that includes your pre-certification staff. That’s why any automated authorization solution you evaluate should deliver bi-directional data exchange between the solution and your EHR or radiology information system.
