Bureaucracy Sinking Healthcare
Why is Prior Authorization sinking
All our "Boats" ?
Start with just Cancer for example:
For patients whose treatment requires prior authorization,
80% of oncologists said prior authorizations have a
somewhat or significant
NEGATIVE impact on patients.
WHY?... It is just policy conversations
not an experimental drug
First Principle for all Clinicians:
DO NO HARM
Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions publishes a biannual
research-based report series called Oncology Insights,
which aims to analyze the views of oncologists nationwide
The responses indicate that the prior authorization process is harming both patients and practices themselves,
Requiring extra manpower to navigate appropriately,
a problem that they believe should be addressed by
new government policies.
Clinicians & Patients don't need new polices...
"They" Need ACG !
ACG = immediate Auto-Ajudication
of Prior Auth at the
Point of Care
More than 80% of participating oncologists
said they have full-time staff dedicated
and benefits issues.
