Electronic Prior Authorization: A Better Way
Prior authorization (PA) is a growing administrative burden for physicians and their staff. Moreover, PA can lead to care delays, treatment abandonment, and negative clinical outcomes for patients. Current manual submission processes are time consuming and present an opportunity for greater automation through electronic prior authorization (ePA). This 10-minute video series outlines the burdens associated with current manual PA processes, describes how pharmacy ePA can help improve PA processing times, and explains how physicians can implement ePA in their practices. After watching this video series, physicians and their staff should feel comfortable contacting electronic health record (EHR) vendors about ePA and asking to have it installed in their practices.
