Agenda Outline

Agenda Item

Meeting Minutes from Discussion

Decision Link(if not child)
ManagementReview ANSI Anti-Trust Policy



Follow up on action items from last week/ volunteers will bring a summary of their thoughts back to PAS group 
  • Sreekanth (Mettle Solutions) and Raj (MCG) put together CRD/DTR/PAS flows to review with group
    • Happy path
      • e.g., Lara use case that was developed for HIMSS20
    • Deviations that can happen and how should we handle
      1. Multiple CPT codes in a single request 
        • Need surgery and anethesia and need prior auth for both - they might not be part of same questionnaire or part of same logical containment - how would you display the CARDS and the questionnaires?
        • Does this happen sequentially or do we need to merge multiple questionnaires or merge multiple CARDS?
        • Priority 2 or 3 because we have a solution where we can do them sequentially
      2. Supplying provider not same as ordering provider 
        • PA request done by either provider (e.g., imaging)
        • Transmission of data between providers
        • 3 possible workflows:
          • Ordering provider submits PA communicates auth # to performing provider
          • Performing provider submits PA
          • Ordering provider submits PA, performing provider updates PA
        • Priority 8
      3. Payer does not have CRD, DTR support yet
        • Priority 8
      4. Delegation - Pause DTR/Prior Auth request process
        • Priority 8
        • DTR IG already indicating what needs to get done (including Task)
      5. No immediate response available from payer (PAS)
        1. Priority 10
      6. Onboarding a provider into a payer system - not a PAS issue, a FAST issue
        • Priority 10
        • Place to go look for endpoint and trust framework that providers and payers would join together - FAST intitiatve
      7. Providers/EHR not having support for all the PAS resources
        1. Priority 8
      8. No support for CDS Hooks and CARD in EHR/hospital system
        1. Priority 8
    • Revisited above list and prioritzed based on frequency in which we think we'll encounter the above exceptions - scale of 1-10
      • Which one do we want to deal with first?
        • Sreekanth, Raj to look at priority 10's to do a deeper dive
        • Send PPT to Dana to post in Confluence


  • Business review of IG - Laurie aiming for an outline of her thinking to share with the group next week
  • Do we have representation/input from Medicaid?
    • No time and funding for them to get involved in any of these initiatives at this point
    • Not a PAS problem, but a general use case problem
