DANVILLE, Pa. – Geisinger announced today its designation as a Radiology Center of Excellence by Covera Health — a leading clinical analytics company that cultivates high-performance provider networks. 

With this designation, Geisinger joins Covera Health’s nationwide Centers of Excellence program, which integrates with self-funded insurers’ existing health networks to seamlessly connect community members to local radiology providers who have proven to deliver the most accurate diagnoses. Geisinger is also a member of Covera Health’s Quality Care Collaborative (QCC), a partnership program supporting clinical analytics and research to advance the measurement and delivery of high-quality care. Radiology providers in the QCC receive practical, actionable feedback that can be used to improve their practices. 

According to the National Institute of Medicine, an estimated 12 million Americans experience diagnostic errors annually. In radiology, interpretive error rates run as high as 43 percent, according to a study published in The Spine Journal in 2017. Such errors double the risk of patient death compared to surgery and other medical errors. Geisinger’s efforts in combating these trends and providing members of its communities with high-quality, accurate diagnostic care in line with Covera Health’s stringent, data-driven, objective metrics around quality, led to its selection as a Radiology Center of Excellence.

“Geisinger’s national reputation for innovation and high-value care provides us the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations such as Covera,” said Jaewon Ryu, M.D., Geisinger’s President and CEO. “Geisinger’s partnership with Covera Health is yet another way that we are making health easier by ensuring that we deliver the right diagnosis up front, avoiding unnecessary treatments and costly repeat testing.” 

“Seeing a high-quality provider at the start helps ensure each patient gets an accurate diagnosis and is critical to receiving the right care plan. It’s one of the most impactful steps in the healthcare journey,” said Ron Vianu, CEO of Covera Health. “Covera Health has had tremendous success in improving diagnostic care across the nation and we’re excited to further our mission through our partnership with Geisinger.”
