Edifecs Presenting, Sponsoring WEDI 2022 National Conference

October 24, 2022

BELLEVUE, Wash. – October 24, 2022 – Edifecs, Inc., a global health information technology solutions company, is participating in multiple sessions at the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) 2022 National Conference, October 25-27 at American University Washington College of Law. Edifecs’ Principal Business Advisor, Michael Pattwell, joins a panel discussion highlighting issues impacting the prior authorization workflow.

Edifecs is sponsoring an educational session on automated, real-time prior authorization for payers and providers. Subject matter experts will also host a technology demonstration to help payers leverage their investment in patient interoperability to meet The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Transparency in Coverage Final Rule.

The Edifecs interoperable platform has been the gold standard for compliant information exchange for decades. At WEDI 2022, the Edifecs team will share how they have leveraged this platform to resolve the prior authorization challenges that delay and even prevent critical patient care and reduce the cost and burden of prior authorization for both providers and payers.

The WEDI National Conference educates attendees on the best practices and emerging trends coming out of the healthcare IT industry. The conference addresses many of healthcare’s most complicated issues, such as the federal healthcare perspective, health equity, data exchange, privacy and security, guiding principles in electronic payment and the No Surprises Act.
