When you go to fill a prescription, there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes. Before a medication can be covered under an insurance plan, insurance companies review the necessity of a prescription through a process called prior authorization. It can be time consuming for physicians and frustrating for patients.

Breezmed, created by UNMC psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Salzbrenner, simplifies the process with a software that does the research for physicians. Each medication is presented with authorization requirements clearly identified. The prior authorization form is then automatically presented for signature and submission. This drastically cuts down the time that physicians spend on paperwork.
