How to kill the fax machine in 6 steps


Thursday, June 13, 2019 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)
Webinar



A collaborative approach to implementing electronic medical attachments.

Despite the lack of a mandated standard, health plans are moving forward with projects to implement electronic medical attachments in an effort to reduce the costs associated with faxing and mailing medical records. The success of these initiatives will ultimately depend on getting providers to stop faxing and start attaching, but adoption shouldn’t be something health plans think about after building the model and rolling it out. Instead, they need to engage with providers and vendors at each phase of the process—from planning to implementation to scaling.

Availity’s role at the intersection of provider and payer connectivity has given them unique insight into the challenges and opportunities electronic medical attachments bring to the industry. They’ve been working closely with health plans, providers, and vendors to build a repeatable model for implementing electronic attachments that takes into consideration provider adoption and scalability. In this webinar, you will hear what they’ve learned throughout this process.

In this webinar, you will learn:
•Why aligning health plan and provider goals is critical
•The importance of building provider journey maps and managing expectations
•What factors to consider before establishing KPIs
•How medical attachments can help lay the foundation for an enterprise clinical gateway model
