Perhaps no two words provoke more frustration among patients, physicians, pharmacists, and payers in the US healthcare system than prior authorization (PA). Recent studies suggest that today’s manual (e.g. paper, telephone, facsimile) and web-based PA processes cost as much as $250 billion in inefficient administration, claims processing, payment, and reconciliation per year and that claims management consumes as much as 15% of the revenue of US medical practices.

To identify trends in market adoption and identify gaps, AMCP recently commissioned a market analysis of stakeholders involved in PA transactions to validate the barriers to adoption of electronic PA (ePA) and to identify areas where AMCP can be proactive in overcoming these barriers and support market adoption.

Please join us on for this webinar featuring ePA reviewing AMCP’s market analysis that captured experiences and challenges from the prescriber perspective, the payer perspective, the pharmacy perspective, and the technology vendor perspective. Then learn about AMCP’s efforts and have the opportunity to provide input to help AMCP formulate specific activities to increase the market adoption of ePA to improve clinical outcomes and reduce health care costs.
