ARLINGTON, Va. — Health information network Surescripts has signed an agreement with eClinicalWorks to extend its electronic prior authorization service to all users of eClinicalWorks software.
Once live, CompletEPA will allow eClincialWorks users the ability to process prior authorizations electronically. With the addition of eClinicalWorks, an electronic health records software vendor, Surescripts CompletEPA will be available to 340,000 providers, representing more than half of all providers already using electronic prescribing.
“Surescripts spent more than a decade establishing connections with pharmacies and benefit managers nationwide to create a more efficient healthcare system, improving patient health outcomes and saving doctor’s offices time and money,” Tom Skelton, CEO at Surescripts, said. “CompletEPA is a win-win for doctors and patients, because it is fully electronic from start to finish.”
CompletEPA is an extension of Surescripts’ electronic prescribing solution and is integrated into a physician’s existing EHR workflow. By utilizing Surescripts, the prior authorization process is facilitated electronically, in real time, without the use of web portals, phone calls or faxes.
“Our end-users understand the importance of eliminating slow and antiquated processes, not just for their own benefit, but ultimately for their patients,” stated Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “With electronic prior authorization through Surescripts, we can meet the demands of our end-users with a best-in-class solution.”
With this added functionality, prescribers will be notified immediately if a prior authorization is required and dynamic forms will prepopulate with patient benefit data obtained through Surescripts’ direct connections with the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit managers, covering 75% of insured patients nationwide.
