Join your fellow healthcare professionals live in Chicago, IL or on the internet as we spotlight innovators and implementers and their early adoption of prior authorization and attachment tools and applications. Following sessions on 275, PARDD, CRD, CDEX and more, join your colleagues in small group breakouts as you ask questions, discuss your implementation plans, concerns and considerations, and how WEDI can help your organizations proceed with implementation guidance.

The 2023 Summer Forum will be 2 days of education and discussion, including:

  • Adopting technology and automation solutions to simplify prior authorization and attachments. 
  • Business strategies for implementing new prior authorization and attachments processes to improve efficiency and reduce administrative burden.
  • Regulatory and policy considerations related to prior authorizations and attachments.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with industry leaders and peers, share best practices and insights, and gain practical knowledge that they can apply to their organizations.
