Connectathon Track Overview

2019-09 Da Vinci Prior Authorizations (CRD/DTR/PAS)

  • Montreal/Jacksonville Connectathon participants can enter their scenarios into this track
    • MCG is working on congested heart failure scenario (Rajesh Godavarthi) and home health scenario
    • Another example was complex labs/genomics previously tested


  • Mitre question re: multiple items within same FHIR Claim vs. bundle of bundles
    • Claim/$submit operation
      • Prior Auth is a bundle containing Claim and supporting resources
      • Someone can send in a batch of Claims (bundle of bundles)
      • Base submit operation allows more flexibility than is what's required for this IG, and we didn't tighten it as much as we should have
        • Input will always be a bundle, the bundle will always contain a single Claim resource representing the Prior Authorization and supporting data
        • Won't submit multiple, independent Prior Authorizations simultaneously through this IG
    • Trying to keep changes to DTR minimal, coming into Prior Auth
      • What's already there is a bundle with a single Claim and supporting information
      • No item information had been filled in for the Claim
      • When a claim comes in, an ID is generated by the Prior Auth code and that gets attached to the Claim and the bundle - they all have the same ID
        • In future needs to handle updates, different responses will need their own unique iD as well
      • Within Item there's a sequence number - intended to be unique within the Claim, not globally - sequence number would identify the "line" within the Prior Auth
        • Payer may create additional lines that link back to the original 'line number' or sequence number
  • Artifacts tab within the IG has a list of basic examples
    • Home Health Care request has example of updates
  • 2 different modes for updates
    • Updating entire authorization - send everything even if only updating a piece within
    • Updating pieces - need to send a flag as indicator (referenced in the IG)
  • Permission from X12 pending to use example codes for the Connectathon
    • Can we plan some time for participants to discuss X12 questions/topics at Connectathon?
      • Could be a break-out session
      • Could also set up time with Financial Management during workgroup meeting
  • When will entire mapping be available to X12 members?
    • TBD
  • Ballot is currently open for this voting/comments on Prior Auth Support IG
