Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
Clarity Health, a leading insurance preauthorization and referral management solution, announced integration capabilities for third-party healthcare solutions seeking electronic preauthorization services.
“Insurance preauthorizations are a tough challenge for the healthcare industry, as payers require different information sets and processes,” says Bill Bunker, CEO of Clarity Health. “Many medical practices struggle to obtain completed and accurate preauthorizations in a timely manner, resulting in payment denials and high operational costs.” The average practice spends 20 hours/week per physician on insurance preauthorizations due to cumbersome processes, according to Health Affairs.
Clarity solves this preauthorization headache by combining a sophisticated insurance processing platform with a Seattle-based service team to quickly deliver accurate and complete preauthorizations directly to customers. Customers report a 59 percent time savings when utilizing Clarity for preauthorizations.
“With the growing complexity of insurance payers and plans, it is increasingly difficult to keep track of when preauthorizations are needed,” says Terry Megiveron, Chief of Provider Services at Mason General Hospital. “Clarity stays on-top of payer changes for us to ensure accurate preauthorizations are obtained. This not only saves my staff significant time, it also reduces potential payment denials.”
Third-party healthcare companies can leverage Clarity’s preauthorization solution by embedding it in their existing HIT platform. Clarity runs in the background to deliver completed preauthorizations electronically to customers. By adding preauthorizations to their solution, third-party healthcare companies can add substantial value to their core offering.
Billing solutions and other third-party vendors who seek a preauthorization service without an integration can also receive value through Clarity’s reseller channel. By ensuring accurate preauthorizations are obtained for payment, vendors can help practices increase collections and avoid administrative costs associated with payment denials and appeals.
