Recondo Technology to host webinar on automating prior authorization requests
Healthcare media and hospital revenue cycle professionals and invited to attend free online event.
Denver, CO—September 27, 2017—Recondo Technology is hosting a complimentary webinar on how hospitals can automate one of their most onerous administrative tasks, requesting prior authorization from payers for scheduled services. Members of the media, hospital revenue cycle professionals and others interested in learning how automation can obtain information from payers at an unprecedented speed and scale are invited to attend.
DATE AND TIME:
Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, 12-1 p.m., Mountain Time.
WHY ATTEND: Attendees will learn how to increase the efficiency of staff currently tasked with managing pre-certification requests. Healthcare organizations are increasingly taking on the responsibility of obtaining prior authorization from payers on behalf of physicians. While this provides more control over assuring authorizations are in place before services are performed, it creates a mountain of work for administrative personnel.
In the enlightening webinar “AuthInitiate: Recondo’s Latest Authorization Break-Through,” attendees will see up close how Recondo Technology’s patented ReconBots™ automate much of this work instead. Additionally, attendees will learn how Recondo automates almost the entire authorization process, including retrieving authorization status—approved or denied with reason for denial—and then routes the answers to hospital’s employees and systems of choice.
Attendees will also hear directly from the Mercy health system on the results it’s currently seeing with Recondo’s AuthInitiate.
After viewing the webinar, attendees will have a fundamental understanding of the following:
- How automation aids revenue cycle personnel in processing an exponentially larger volume of prior authorization requests than they are currently able to manually through websites and phone calls
- How automating the authorization process reduces risk of denial and increases account yield
- Which core authorization functions to automate to create a near “touchless” transaction
With the goal of infusing the pre-service revenue cycle with newfound efficiency, Recondo launched AuthInitiate™ in early 2017 as the newest module of its industry-leading Authorization-Denial Prevention (Auth-DP) suite of solutions. The solution was developed with close input from health systems such as Mercy (MO), St. Francis Hospital, Baylor Scott& White Health and others.
Clients’ interest in co-developing AuthInitiate stems from the tremendous amount of expensive manual work involved in obtaining authorizations. For large multi-facility IDNs, that can require significant numbers of employees or writing sizeable outsourcing checks.
Post-webinar media interviews with Heather Kawamoto, Recondo Technology Vice President of Product Management, can be arranged.
