COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Health Solutions, a leading healthcare management and redesign company, is pleased to announce the launch of xGCare, a care management platform that helps healthcare organizations improve quality of care, enhance the patient experience and reduce overall costs. xGCare combines the in-depth experience of xG Health's expert clinicians with population health-management process improvements developed and refined over 20 years by Geisinger Health System.

"Care management software developed for payers is often expensive, complex and lacking effective care management protocols," said Earl Steinberg, MD, MPP, CEO of xG Health. "On the other hand, generic workflow software lacks evidence-based decision support and impactful clinical assessments, and fails to ensure consistency across users. xGCare is a revolutionary, turnkey solution that combines meaningful clinical content with provider-tested workflows. xGCare can be implemented quickly and cost-effectively, is supported by our xGLearn™ training solution, and integrates seamlessly with xG Health's other products and services."

The xGCare platform helps the care team organize, simplify and prioritize care management by facilitating consistent application of best clinical practices, eliminating redundant activities, minimizing documentation time and maximizing the use of non-licensed clinical staff. The software is pre-loaded with features that make care management more effective. These include evidence-based patient assessments for dozens of conditions that automate the production of patient-specific action plans. Additional features include streamlined workflows, data analytics-driven decision support (including identification of gaps in care), patient self-management action plans for specific clinical conditions, and automated reports on key measures of success and care management productivity.

Notes Melodi Brown, RN, MSN, CCM, Vice President of Care Management at xG Health, "xGCare can be implemented typically within six to twelve weeks, saving accountable care organizations, providers and payers significant time and money and helping accelerate their transformation to more efficient and effective healthcare."
