How One Imaging Center is Reducing Claims Denials Through Automated Preauthorization
Park Avenue Radiologists (PAR) was the first private medical practice to bring MRI & CT imaging technology outside of the hospital setting in Manhattan. Although PAR strives to provide patients with the best medical care, health insurers' manual authorization processes were starting to come between sound clinical judgment and a patient's clearly indicated care. Between delayed wait times, too many payment claims denials, and a time-consuming preauthorization process, the PAR staff knew it was time for a change.


Learn how PAR implemented iConnect® Network Services to streamline the referral process and automate preauthorization and saw:
  • An 80% increase in referring physicians
  • Significantly fewer claims denials
  • Significant cost savings, allowing the practice to shift some of its budget from payroll to equipment
