Plano, TX, October 13, 2023– Health Chain, a leading innovator in healthcare technology, announced it has been identified as a Representative Vendor for intelligent prior authorization (iPA) solutions for U. S. healthcare organizations.

Effective, value-based healthcare delivery continues to be hampered by the lagging adoption of electronic prior authorization processes. iPA providers like Health Chain have introduced health data exchange solutions that support seamless prior authorization and meet CMS interoperability mandates. According to Gartner, “ Yet, even though federal and state regulation push for technology modernization and interoperability to advance PA automation, significant opportunity for improvement remains as payers and providers lag in iPA adoption.”

Sudheen Kumar, Health Chain CEO said, “Our focus is creating healthcare technology innovations that streamline and automate patient-centric care. Our goal with HC Prior Authorization is to reduce provider burden, improve patient outcomes and help payers drive value-based care. We are very proud to be recognized as a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Intelligent Prior Authorization, U.S. Healthcare Organizations .”
