Challenges abound for patients and clinicians alike when it comes to managing gastrointestinal diseases, making it imperative that all stakeholders on the care team—including the patient—continue to hone their knowledge, confidence, and best practice strategies to improve outcomes. But direct patient care is just one piece of the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) puzzle. The burden of prior authorization related to biologic medicines can significantly impact clinical workflows. Yet, according to a recent survey from the AMA, only 30% of surveyed practices reported that their office lacks a formal process for handling the PA workload.
If this sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place. CME Outfitters’ Gastroenterology Education Hub provides clinicians with the education and resources necessary to optimize their approach clinical care, as well as prior authorization activities and resources that will help the entire care team—nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical assistants – immediately improve their PA process to ensure consistent approvals that minimize administrative time and streamlines communications with payers.
We’ve added videos and checklists to share with your patients to help them better understand the process and how they can contribute as advocates for their care. Participants who complete the entire prior authorization series will receive not only CME/CE credit but will also be awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Prior Authorization.
Participate in the free CME activities, ask our faculty your tough questions, and download the resources below to improve care and process in the management of patients with IBD.
