Thanks to all who participated in the surgical preauthorization survey we sent out in the fall.  The response was overwhelming and underscores the importance of this issue in all of our practices.  We presented the results of the survey at the recent ISASS16 meeting in Las Vegas.  As all were not in attendance, we are sharing a one-page synopsis of the results (see below). In addition to our presentation, the theme of insurance and reimbursement was prevalent throughout the Annual Meeting.

Based on the data from the survey we have developed a lost revenue calculator to identify the financial impact to your specific practice.

Thank you again to all those who participated.  If you would like to learn more about the solution we are using to help in our practice click here.  We have no financial conflict of interest with the solution.
