State Fund to Launch Revolutionary Utilization Review Solution

9 Views

State Fund’s new UR Connected solution, developed in partnership with
Conexia Inc., will empower doctors to provide expedited care for injured
workers and demonstrate how innovative technology can improve efficiency
and quality of care in California’s workers’ compensation system

PLEASANTON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–State Fund announced today that it will soon launch a revolutionary
utilization review (UR) technology called UR Connected. The system will
dramatically speed up the approval process for most UR requests and help
physicians treat their patients faster and more effectively. By
providing physicians with real-time approvals in most cases, UR
Connected will help injured workers return to work as quickly as
possible. The technology will also reduce the administrative burden felt
by physicians during the current UR process.

During UR, an insurance administrator reviews treatment recommendations
for an injured worker requested by his or her doctor, as required by
California law. UR Connected leverages Conexia’s real-time point-of-care
technology to respond to most UR requests in seconds, rather than days
(as is often the case today).

“UR Connected will speed up medical care for injured workers and reduce
the administrative burden on medical providers while maintaining the
quality of care standard adopted by California,” said State Fund
President and CEO Vern Steiner. “This will help eliminate many of the
concerns we hear expressed by injured workers and providers today, and
we believe it will ultimately enable us to allow providers more
discretion to develop individualized treatment plans without increasing
the risk of abuse that has plagued the California workers’ compensation
system.”

State Fund is revolutionizing healthcare delivery in California workers’
compensation with this innovative end-to-end solution. Beginning this
summer via key access points such as direct integration services and a
web-based portal, medical providers will be able to connect with State
Fund in real time—a first for workers’ compensation carriers in
California.

“Interoperable healthcare delivery, the idea of providing relevant
information in real-time at the point-of-care, is an idea whose time has
come,” said Conexia Chief Executive Officer Luis Navas. “We are very
pleased to have the opportunity to partner with State Fund to deliver on
this idea by bringing our state-of-the-art solutions to California’s
complex workers’ compensation system.”

In addition to all of the benefits UR Connected will deliver to patients
and doctors, the system will also improve State Fund’s claims efficiency
and, over time, help direct more premium dollars toward patient care.
