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."
