About the Session

Move beyond the “techy” code words and learn what the latest CMS rule on interoperability and prior authorization actually means for you. CMS’ proposed rule promotes electronic information exchange as the best way to increase patient access and reduce the administrative burden of prior authorization on both providers and payers. But what exactly does the rule require? In this session, we will examine CMS’ latest proposed rule and focus on implications of the new legislation, the core tech capabilities required by the rule, current technology that aligns with the rule and the rule’s potential impact on providers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Get perspective on the rule’s key points, the potential impacts on providers and payers, and what’s likely to happen next.
  • Go beyond “tech speak” to understand the core tech capabilities required by the rule.
  • Understand what’s happening in the prior authorization tech landscape now and how it aligns with the rule.
  • Move your organization forward with takeaways and next steps.
