The newest addition to AGS Health’s modular AI Platform speeds eligibility and benefit determination by as much as 85% and delivers price estimates up to 80% faster than manual processes.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 22, 2023 AGS Health, a leading provider of tech-enabled revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions and strategic growth partner to healthcare providers across the U.S., announced today the release of Intelligent Authorization, a single-source solution that automates and optimizes the financial clearance process and avoids prior authorization-related denials. Part of AGS Health’s AI Platform, Intelligent Authorization streamlines and expedites processes by up to 90% through a variety of configurable automation solutions that improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance the patient experience.

“Half of all denials can be traced back to prior authorization and other front-end revenue cycle issues, jeopardizing provider organizations’ financial health and negatively impacting the patient experience by limiting transparency and delaying access to care”

“Half of all denials can be traced back to prior authorization and other front-end revenue cycle issues, jeopardizing provider organizations’ financial health and negatively impacting the patient experience by limiting transparency and delaying access to care,” said Matt Bridge, Senior Vice President of RCM Services, AGS Health. “Intelligent Authorization addresses the underlying issues causing prior authorization-related denials while streamlining and accelerating financial clearance processes. Customers report doubling production volumes and tripling the number of days in advance their patient access teams can secure authorizations, which in turn expedites appointments to better support patient needs and fill open time slots – resulting in improved revenue growth and an enhanced patient financial experience.”

A platform-agnostic solution, Intelligent Authorization prevents denials, reduces aged A/R, improves net revenue reimbursements, and increases clean claim rates across a variety of specialties, including radiology, oncology, occupational and physical therapy, surgery, and infusion/diagnostics. Compared to manual processes, it enhances productivity and reduces the time required for financial clearance activities, delivering:

  • 75%-85% faster eligibility and benefit determinations
  • 85%-90% improvement in authorization determination time
  • 65%-80% less time spent on authorization initiations
  • 75%-85% shorter authorization follow-up times
