CenterX’s Electronic Prior Authorization Network Improves Medication Adherence
CenterX, a health information network, announces a solution that further streamlines the e-prescribing process and expedites patients’ access to medication. CenterX has worked with Epic to further the national goal of interoperable health care systems and provide physicians with the right information for the right patients at the right times.
Using CenterX’s Enterprise Medication Authorization solution, organizations using Epic are able to capture and complete the prior authorization process in the electronic medical record. Currently, this process requires phone calls and faxing to determine if the patient has coverage for a specific medication. Integration of this prior authorization process within Epic’s medical record system saves physician time, allowing them to properly plan and prepare their patients for successful prescription therapy.
The Enterprise Medication Authorization solution provides full integration with the electronic medical record and facilitates real-time exchange of information between the prescriber who orders medications and the payer who covers the costs.
“Our experience working with physicians reinforces that the CenterX approach to providing specific, actionable medication data to physicians improves care, health, and cost. Working with Epic to implement an electronic prior authorization process reflects the work of many in the industry to achieve this next step in interoperability” said Joe Reinardy, Principal, CenterX.
As the medical industry continues to transition from a paper-based system to one that leverages technology for administration, diagnosis, and treatment, CenterX will continue to drive the forefront of emerging open standards to ensure the most rapid and accurate exchange of healthcare information.
