The Problem

Lack-of-automation-Infinx

Overcoming Complexity

Physical therapists did not go to school to manage prior authorizations, yet that is often what happens. An important procedure for a patient is derailed because a prior authorization is required. And the long, arduous process of obtaining authorization begins, and it becomes pain-staking. The complexity of the process taxes staff to the point that denials go up.

Current solutions are long on promises but short on the ability to fully automate the prior authorization workflow and ultimately require human interaction. The prior authorization process is costly, very complex, and creates scheduling nightmares. Payors are continuing to bring more procedures under prior authorization review, and portals and guidelines regularly change. All of these requests frequently take time away from patient care, which directly affects customer satisfaction and your bottom line.

The Solution – Automate Your Prior Authorization

A Scalable Prior Authorization Solution

Infinx Prior Authorization Software evaluates each case to determine which cases can be automated by AI. Exceptions are managed by our trained and certified team of prior authorization experts.

No Auth
Decision Engine

Determining if a case requires a prior authorization shouldn’t be hard. That’s why we’ve created our No Auth Decision Engine to give you immediate insight if a case needs a prior authorization, before spending the time to call a payer. This process can cut as much as 30% of your workload just by reaching a decision ahead of time.

Exception Handling by Proven Experts

Prior authorizations for physical therapy practices are complex and inevitably require human intelligence to manage the exceptions. In-house teams often have error rates as high as 35%, which creates a drain on resources and revenue. You can improve your patient access by enhancing and automating your prior authorization process so that you can skip the challenges and see immediate benefits in your workflow, including:

  • Authorization appointments processed well within time
  • Obtaining a high percentage of prior authorizations
  • Low prior authorization denial rates because of complete, accurate, and properly-tracked documentation

Our solutions help you get ahead of the revenue cycle problem by quickly authorizing and confirming every procedure rendered and can be billed with near certainty to its accuracy and propensity to collect. Our experience working with payors nationwide, allows you to receive STAT approvals in as little as 20 minutes and same day appointments within 4 hours, at 100% accuracy and 100% adherence to a 24-hour TAT, allowing you to capture more revenue for your business.
