There is much evidence that automating prior authorization will ease many of its inefficiencies and irritations for payers, providers, and patients. A group of stakeholders in Massachusetts, including technical service providers and government regulators, focused on what it would take to automate prior authorization in the Commonwealth over the next two years. NEHI’s report, written in partnership with the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium, provides recommendations that anticipate the final Federal Rule on Improving Prior Authorization, including guidelines for drawing an automation roadmap and the structures needed to support the coordination and expertise needed for statewide implementation.
