Edifecs goes live with tech to automate prior authorization

Health IT company Edifecs is launching a new artificial intelligence-powered tool designed to automate prior authorization at the point of care.

The tool can integrate with existing EHR systems and is designed to reduce administrative burdens. The tool remains in compliance with all federal and CMS regulations, according to the Sept. 13 Edifecs news release.

"Prior authorization is one of the biggest challenges providers face today, causing tension and abrasion between providers and payers," CEO of Edifecs Venkat Kavarthapu said. "Additionally, when patients are forced to postpone medical procedures to wait for insurance approval, the repercussions on patients' health can be irreversible. We're thrilled to introduce a next-generation solution that streamlines this process to ensure patients get the care they need when they need it."
