Geisinger Health System (Danville, Pa.), one of the nation's largest integrated healthcare delivery systems, is implementing Atlanta-based RelayHealth's RevRunner eligibility solution to improve patients' understanding of their health insurance coverage.

According to the company, the product automatically uses multiple means to verify the most current and complete data on a patient's coverage, copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. It will also, it touts, help improve Geisinger's verification process by providing unlimited eligibility checks from the scheduling of services through discharge and final billing to verify payor and patient financial responsibilities.

Geisinger is comprised of two medical center campuses, three hospitals, a 740-member group practice, a not-for-profit health insurance company and the Henry Hood Center for Health Research-dedicated to creating innovative new models for patient care, satisfaction and clinical outcomes.
