Authorizations (Analytics Report)

Authorizations is an  Analysis Grid style report that Includes SOAP 1.0 and 2.0 data and helps you understand utilization across clinics by providing counts of Available, Used, and Total Authorized Visits. This report also provides insight into patients with more than one authorization. 

Note: This information pulls directly from the authorization as added to the patient’s case.

  1. Choose which clinics appear in the report using the View Clinics by: drop-down menu and corresponding (…) button.
  2. Select the desired Authorization End Date Range.
  3. Use the View by Case Status to choose whether you want Active or Discharged cases.
  4. Add custom Filters to create specific segments of data using any of the column values in the report.
  5. Select Add Chart to visualize the data. Charts can be saved and displayed in your Custom Dashboards.
  6. Use the Column Headers to Sort, Filter, Group, Aggregate, or Format the report output.
  7. Once you've manipulated the report to your liking, you can save the customizations to your Saved Reports to run again later or share it with others in your organization.
