We are pleased to announce that VBA was named a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner research report “U.S. Healthcare Payers and Providers: Collaborate to Build Intelligent, Seamless Prior Authorizations.”
According to Gartner, “In order to improve efficiency, it is critical that healthcare organizations apply automation within their PA tools — however, only 26% of PAs are automated. For example, on average, providers would save 16 minutes per transaction if electronic PA submissions were applied — a substantial operational savings for both payers and providers.”
VBA recognizes the challenges that payers face when it comes to streamlining prior authorization processes. Through our integrated suite of solutions, providers can enter prior authorization requests through our VBAGateway portal, and these requests are automatically entered into VBASoftware, our claims administration system. Through workflows in VBASoftware, payers can set up automatic authorization approvals and return an immediate response to the provider.
Our VBAPI solution provides even greater flexibility for payers that need to interface to an external portal, electronic health record or care management system. You can use our APIs to provide real-time status updates on the prior authorization request at any time during the process.
