Electronic prior authorization (ePA) is a digital process that automates and streamlines the prior authorization workflow in healthcare. It replaces traditional manual methods by electronically exchanging information between healthcare providers and insurance companies. ePA enables real-time submission, review, and approval of authorization requests, reducing paperwork, delays, and administrative burden. This digital system improves efficiency, accelerates the authorization process, reduces errors, and enhances overall RCM by ensuring timely access to necessary medical treatments and services.
