CVS Caremark to Pilot Electronic Prior Authorization to Help Speed Patient Access to Prescription Medication
Date:5/16/2011

al officer of CVS Caremark.  "The prior authorization process is currently evolving to keep pace as prescribers transition towards electronic prescribing and electronic patient records to better manage their patients' pharmacy care. This pilot is an important step toward demonstrating how the industry can integrate ePA with e-prescribing to streamline and speed up processing of prior authorizations to ensure that members have quick access to care that is medically appropriate and cost-effective."

Surescripts is participating in the CVS Caremark-led ePA pilot to monitor and understand how what is learned can be applied to the industry. NaviNet, through its NaviNet Mobile Connect platform, will be participating in the ePA pilot as well as Allscripts, whose client base includes all former users of CVS Caremark's proprietary iScribe e-prescribing tool, which was transitioned to the Allscripts ePrescribe solution last year. MedPlus has indicated its intent to deliver ePA functionality in a future release of their tool. Additional vendors have expressed their intent to deliver ePA functionality in future product releases upon the successful completion of this pilot.  

CVS Caremark believes the ePA pilot transactions will help lead to the development of standards that will be able to be used by any e-prescribing vendor. The company intends to share both the transactions and the results from the implementation with the market and the appropriate ANSI-accredited standards organizations to help drive the adoption of ePA standards by payor and provider systems. Technical guidelines for the pilot test have been published and are available through CVS Caremark.
