DANVILLE, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/12 -- Geisinger Health Plan (GHP) announced today that it has chosen NaviNet, America's largest real-time healthcare communications network, to enhance its next-generation provider communications strategy.

NaviNet, a Web portal for providers, simplifies health care administration and provides access to provider and member information in a secure environment. Using NaviNet's Saas-based multi-payer Insurer Connect solution, provider offices are able to confirm benefit information, view and inquire about claims and submit referrals for their patients who have GHP coverage.

As a leader in innovation, GHP is focused on improving efficiency, member satisfaction, and health outcomes, while reducing health care costs. By leveraging NaviNet's capabilities, GHP is working to improve and streamline administrative, financial, and clinical communications for both Geisinger-affiliated and independent participating providers. The portal allows providers to better manage patient information and office processes by providing easy access to GHP's comprehensive online resources for policy and claims information, and drug formularies, reducing the time and cost associated with administrative functions.

"We have more than 45,000 providers in our network," said Jason Renne, vice president of network innovations for GHP. "It is important that all our participating providers have the information and tools they need to offer our members excellent service."

"By offering Insurer Connect to its fast-growing provider network, GHP is demonstrating its commitment to providers and member satisfaction," said Josh Holmes, senior vice president of payer sales, NaviNet.
