BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edifecs, Inc., a global health information technology solutions company, is participating in multiple sessions at the virtual Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) 2023 Summer Conference, August 1 - 2. Kevin Day, principal business advisor at Edifecs, and AVP product manager, Sergiu Rata, are moderating an expert panel discussion on taking a holistic and patient-centered approach to attachments.
Edifecs will also be hosting a technology showcase to share how organizations can take a strategic approach to complying with prior authorization mandates. As a leader helping resolve challenges with prior authorization that delay patient care, Edifecs executives will share first-hand knowledge on efficiently improving health information exchange, reducing costs, and while preparing for forthcoming mandate compliance.
The WEDI Summer Forum will focus on two CMS proposed rules. Day One will focus on the “Advancing Interoperability and Improving Prior Authorization Processes” provisions, with emphasis on the Prior Authorization Requirements, Documentation, and Decision (PARDD) API requirements. Day Two will spotlight the “Health Care Attachments Transactions” and its X12-based proposals. Experts will also examine the HL7 Clinical Data exchange (CDex) standard and discuss critical implementation issues and steps the industry must take to ensure an efficient transition to these new standards.
