“This enabled our team to build an intelligent automated solution that significantly reduces the burden of prior auth, expediting patient care and reducing the drain on cost and resources for payers and providers alike.”

The Edifecs solution will automate and optimize the prior authorization process across HELIOS to significantly reduce the administrative burden, alleviate friction between payers and providers, and ultimately expedite patient care. According to WEDI, automating prior authorization could save the medical industry $25 b******. Based on client feedback, VirtualHealth is adding Edifecs’ prior authorization solution to streamline prior authorizations for their commercial health plan, ACO, home health, and healthcare system clients.

HELIOS is the first cloud-native medical management platform, purpose built to support value-based, whole-person care. Its innovative architecture of utilization management (UM) and complex care management (CM) within a single ecosystem maximizes collaboration, coordination, and care delivery for the entire care team. HELIOS’s configurable design and unique approach helps eliminate data silos, simplifying UM and CM processes and reducing the need for IT resources.

“The prior authorization process is a tremendous burden across our healthcare system impacting both payers and clinicians. For more than two decades we have helped eliminate friction between payers and providers, giving us deep insight into their workflows, data sets, and business and administrative processes,” said Venkat Kavarthapu, CEO, Edifecs. “This enabled our team to build an intelligent automated solution that significantly reduces the burden of prior auth, expediting patient care and reducing the drain on cost and resources for payers and providers alike.”

“Prior authorization has been a burdensome issue across the industry and is a pain point we hear about from many of our clients,” said Adam Sabloff, Founder and CEO of VirtualHealth. “Offering a streamlined prior auth process will help HELIOS users improve patient care experiences and outcomes, and to transform the healthcare system for the betterment of all. We’re very pleased to be able to partner with Edifecs to bring their electronic prior auth solution to HELIOS users.”
