Briefly describe this entry’s communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 200 words):

The 2018 ePA National Adoption Scorecard summarizes the current state of electronic prior authorization (ePA) in the industry, quantifies the impact of prior authorization (PA) to patients and providers, and highlights current ePA adoption and implementation rates by market leaders.

As ePA implementation continues to increase, the report found that the industry is looking for new ways to enhance ePA functionality to benefit industry stakeholders, continue fueling adoption from pharmacists and providers and benefit the patient. Two areas of opportunity are real-time prescription benefit transactions (RTPB) and streamlined solutions for specialty medication. The 2018 edition of the scorecard highlights the current state of RTPB and specialty medications, and offers an unbiased overview of where the industry is headed. The report also includes filmed interviews with physicians and payer partners who utilize ePA solutions to more efficiently submit and review PA requests.

The 2018 ePA National Adoption Scorecard is the fourth edition of the annual industry report. Other years the report has been published are 2017, 2016 and 2015 and is consistently cited as a trusted industry resource.

To date, the 2018 ePA National Adoption Scorecard has been reported in several media outlets, including Becker’s Hospital Review, HealthPayerIntelligence and HIStalk.
