Helping Nephrologists and Patients Thrive

GNS was launched to help physicians, practices, patients, and payors navigate and shape the changing healthcare environment while driving improvements in outcomes.

Wherever a practice is on the spectrum from fee-for-service to value-based care, our purpose remains to bring forth innovative, sustainable practice solutions that enable physicians to stay independent and at the heart of patient care delivery.

Our Story

Recognizing the need for physician alignment, engagement, and leadership, we created the Renal Care Organization (RCO) in 2012 as a physician-owned and physician-governed national platform. RCO is a non-profit organization that brings together like-minded nephrologists that seek to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs, enhance the experience for both patients and physicians, and guide the rise of value-based care.

As the RCO platform grew, our members expressed the need for robust practice management expertise, uniform care delivery programs, data analytics capabilities, and population health initiatives. To meet the needs of nephrologists and the evolving kidney care space, we launched Global Nephrology Solutions (GNS) to bring forth innovative, sustainable practice solutions and industry leading data analytics that enable physicians to stay independent and at the heart of patient care delivery.

As the industry proceeds into value-based care, GNS fully embraces physicians, practices, payors, and plans, in our journey to transform the delivery of kidney care and its impact on patients, their families, and the wider community.
