Driving Administrative Efficiencies with TriZetto Touchless Authorization Processing

Event Date: 10/30/2019

Event Overview

Wednesday, October 30, 2019
11:00 AM CT – 12:00 PM CT (60 minutes)
GPO Vendor Spotlight Host: Cognizant

This vendor spotlight is hosted on our ReadyTalk platform

 

Prior authorization (PA) has long been a burden of the healthcare industry. Many health plans and providers still rely on manual processes to both manage and communicate with each other regarding prior authorization before treatment. The processes today are tedious, can take days to weeks to complete, and have the potential to delay necessary care – all which translate into real cost and time implications for everyone involved in the authorization transaction.

The TriZetto Touchless Authorization Processing (TTAP) solution helps streamline the authorization process by implementing a real-time, cloud-based prior authorization portal that automates requests by using payer-specific guidelines and clinical rules. This method can now streamline the process to take minutes, rather than weeks, resulting in mitigated costs associated with authorization-related administrative tasks.  Cognizant recently signed up to participate in the Health Plan Alliance GPO and is offering Alliance members a discount on the TTAP solution.

 

  • Identify the key administrative and financial challenges facing the prior authorization process today and the consequential impact it has on patients and physicians
  • Evaluate the time and cost-savings associated with the manual prior authorization processes versus automated solutions
  • Understand the workflow efficiencies of a touchless, system agnostic PA process and the value it presents to health plans and providers
  • Provide attendees with an understanding of the TTAP offerings available through the Alliance GPO
