PDX Streamlines Prior Authorizations

Through an agreement with Armada Health Care, PDX has announced that Armada’s prior authorization (PA) solution, known as ApproveRx, will be integrated in all PDX systems.

ApproveRx is an online platform that facilitates the PA process to quickly locate and submit PA forms for virtually all drugs and insurance plans.

Integration within the workflow will allow pharmacies to automate the selection and completion of the appropriate PA form, and then electronically send the form to a prescriber or health plan, eliminating the need for paper and faxes. The system also allows for monitoring the status of PA submissions.
