Parachute Health Launches Integrated Solution of DME Ordering with Prior Authorization

Newly Embedded Prior Authorizations in the Parachute Platform Reduce Costs and Streamlines Administration for Health Plans, DME/HME Providers, and Clinicians

NEW YORK, June 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Parachute Health, the platform empowering simple DME and HME ordering, announces the launch of its groundbreaking collaboration with two of the largest healthcare companies to revolutionize DME ePrescribing and now prior authorization while reducing costs for health plans, DME providers and clinicians. Through the new platform functionality, Parachute Health now uniquely streamlines the prior authorization process to reduce friction at the point of care and improve patient outcomes.

This collaboration solves the prior authorization burden that has long plagued clinicians and DME providers alike and resulted in significant delays, provider burnout, and patient dissatisfaction. The new integrated solution eliminates this pain point by embedding prior authorization workflows directly into the prescribing process. This liberates providers from an arduous back-and-forth authorization process, allowing them to focus on delivering exceptional patient care.

"Growing up in a healthcare family, watching my sister as a doctor, mom as a nurse, and family's pharmacy, I witnessed firsthand how time-intensive and opaque the process was to obtain an authorization. I am excited to be streamlining the ordering and authorization process by partnering with payors and building the necessary cost-controls to eliminate the current administrative burden that all stakeholders face," said David Gelbard, CEO and Founder of Parachute Health. "As Parachute continues to scale our revolutionary open e-prescribing platform nationally, it is exciting that we are now able to embed prior authorizations into the point-of-care ordering process. This collaboration is a mission-driven solution that benefits all stakeholders – reducing costs for payors, liberating clinicians from burdensome processes, and freeing providers to focus on what matters most: caring for patients."

As the leading digital platform for DME and HME ordering, Parachute Health empowers over 220,000 clinicians and 3,000 supplier locations to deliver exceptional patient care. While health plans historically have little to no visibility into legacy fax-based DME ordering processes, Parachute Health provides transparency for payors and clinicians into the ordering workflow. This is a more reliable process for DME providers and provides better care for patients.

With a proven record enabling millions of patients to receive the life-saving products and services they need since 2016, Parachute Health's open ecosystem powers DME/HME providers to maintain direct relationships with clinicians and patients. Parachute Health's flexible platform allows clinicians and patients to select their DME/HME providers of choice.

Through this collaboration Parachute Health's open solution guarantees health plans shared savings while empowering clinicians and patients the freedom to choose their medical equipment and provider, and powering DME/HME providers to maintain control over their own businesses that they have worked hard to build.
