GSS specializes in Health Care Coordination Consulting and Electronic Health Records Management.
The Need for Better Improved Care Coordination
As medical practices and technologies have advanced, the delivery of sophisticated, high-quality medical care has come to require teams of health care providers—primary care physicians, specialists, nurses, technicians, and other clinicians.
Each member of the team tends to have specific, limited interactions with the patient and, depending on the team member’s area of expertise, a somewhat different view of the patient. In effect, the health care team’s view of the patient can become fragmented into disconnected facts and clusters of symptoms. Health care providers need less fragmented views of patients.
What is Care Coordination
Care Coordination is about assessing, planning, implementing, coordinating, and monitoring the services required to meet a patient’s health and human services needs.
It facilitates the targeting of those most-at-risk, making individualized care plans actionable; facilitates monitoring against benchmarks; facilitates managing care navigators and communications between providers.
Efficient care coordination processes will benefit care organizations by increasing outreach, optimizing workflow, providing alerts to changes in patient’s conditions, and facilitating rapid and efficient response.
Patients benefit from timely intervention, avoiding duplicative medical histories and tests, receiving consistent medical advice, instructions and information, experiencing improved transitions between care provider sites, and better understanding their health care options.

Electronic Health Records
What Is the concept of Electronic Health Records
Medicine is an information-rich enterprise. A greater and more seamless flow of information within a digital health care infrastructure, created by electronic health records (EHRs), encompasses and leverages digital progress and can transform the way care is delivered and compensated. With EHRs, information is available whenever and wherever it is needed.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, a component of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, represents the Nation’s first substantial commitment of Federal resources to support the widespread adoption of EHRs. As of August 2012, 54 percent of the Medicare- and Medicaid-eligible professionals had registered for the meaningful use incentive program.
The Benefits of EHRs
When fully functional and exchangeable, the benefits of EHRs offer far more than a paper record can. EHRs:
- Improve quality and convenience of patient care
- Increase patient participation in their care
- Improve accuracy of diagnoses and health outcomes
- Increase practice efficiencies and cost savings
- Improve care coordination – with more complete patient information, providers improve their ability to make well-informed treatment decisions quickly and safely.
