ATLANTA, Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Craneware, Inc. (AIM: CRW.L), the market leader in automated revenue integrity solutions, announced today that nationally-recognized non-profit health system, Intermountain Healthcare, has entered a multi-year agreement with Craneware to advance standardization of its charge description master (CDM) management process with the industry's leading chargemaster automation solution used by more than 1,000 healthcare provider organizations.

Intermountain Healthcare chose Craneware's Chargemaster Toolkit®, Online Reference Toolkit® and Physician Revenue Toolkit®.
