    Our clinic health coordinators (schedulers) are responsible for prior authorizations in our clinic, but often need to involve the RN case manager in the prior authorization justification.  The inpatients prior authorizations are done by the case management team.

    In your institution who completes prior authorizations for medications?  Are outpatient medications and inpatient discharge medications done by different individuals? Thank you!
