We are a busy family practice office with 9 providers. We are currently having a huge issue with the amount of time our nurses are spending doing prior authorizations for radiology procedures and drugs. Some of my providers are wanting to upcode the visits to offset the time the nurses are spending, I disagree with this unless the nurse is in the room with the patient performing the authorizations, which may not always be the case, and around here unfeasible. I have been doing some research, but really haven't come up with anything that I think will make my providers happy. What are your offices doing to combat this? Would love to hear from you.
