Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 31, 2017
MCG Health, a leading provider of informed care strategies and part of the Hearst Health network, and Children's Community Health Plan (CCHP), an affiliate of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, are sending thought leaders from their respective organizations to present at the America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Institute and Expo 2017 in Austin, Texas. Their presentation, Empowering Care Via Automation: Using Web-based Content and Technology to Optimize the Payer-Provider Workflow, will share details about MCG’s latest software platform, Cite for Collaborative Care, which enables seamless authorizations between health plans and health care providers. The session will take place during the AHIP Breakfast Briefing, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. (Central Time), on Friday, June 9, 2017.
MCG’s Director of Product Management, Dr. Holly Urban, MD, and CCHP’s Rebecca Gall, RN, and Lynn M. Kryfke, RN, MSN, will lead the session about the journey of a health plan optimizing their prior authorization process from a labor-intensive manual effort to one that automates the use of evidence-based guidelines to provide real-time authorizations. They will also highlight the impact of simultaneously driving clinical transformation in the provider network and administrative streamlining within the health plan. Attendees can expect to learn about the implementation process, the lessons learned by both organizations, and key metrics illustrating the tremendous success of this endeavor. There will also be a discussion around emerging tools which support the next stage of workflow evolution.
MCG’s Dr. Holly Urban says, “This session will be a wonderful opportunity for health plan professionals to optimize their relationships with care providers via MCG technology, content, and innovation.”
Lynn Kryfke from CCHP, says, “I appreciate MCG’s willingness to listen to the end user and implement solutions that have direct impact on our work.”
