The following article, “Prior Authorization Call Shows Inefficiency, Absurdity of Process” represents a tiresome challenge confronting the Healthcare industry, while also representing the foundation behind Agadia’s core mission, to improve quality of care and expedite the delivery of critical health care services by advancing and automating Utilization Management processes.
This article, in particular, talks to the mundane process of completing a Prior Authorization, arguing that “PA phone calls rank high among physicians’ top burdensome issues, with one study estimating that physicians spend more than 868 million hours each year in PA-related activities.”
At Agadia, while our PA solution, PAHub™, is designed for use by Health Plans and Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs), its end-to-end management of the prior authorization process will result in efficiencies for all parties involved.
PAHub is a web-based solution uniquely designed to automate the management of Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) across all healthcare services, all lines of business, and all channels. With PAHub, Health Plans and PBMs have the tools at their fingertips to control all clinical, compliance and administrative aspects of Prior Authorization at the point-of-care to reduce turn-around times and increase operational and clinical efficiencies.
Real-time integration with the nation’s leading enterprise systems, EMR vendors and physician portals is paying dividends to many of Agadia’s clients in streamlining the prior authorization process.
