NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems, services and interoperability solutions, today announced it will showcase its comprehensive suite of products and services to improve care, increase efficiencies, enhance patient safety and maximize outcomes during the HIMSS14 Annual Conference and Exhibition February 23 – 27 in Orlando, Fla., at booth #6265 in Hall E.
Visitors to the NextGen Healthcare booth will embark on a journey through the NextGen Healthcare portfolio of solutions and services, and learn more about how the Company continually provides its clients new ways to deliver care, manage costs and optimize clinical and financial results.
Stops on the journey include:
Innovative EHR Platform: The Company’s ONC-HIT 2014 Edition certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) products – including NextGen® Ambulatory EHR 5.8 – help NextGen Healthcare clients achieve Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2 goals and transition to ICD-10. Embedded role-based workflows within the EHR help providers more efficiently manage the care of their patients.
Interoperability Junction: NextGen Healthcare will demonstrate its latest solutions for connectivity and interoperability to achieve better outcomes, including NextGen® Share. Powered by Mirth technology, NextGen® Share is a new interoperability platform designed to enable safe, secure, accurate and rapid exchange of clinical and referral data for practices without leaving their EHR system. The solution helps providers make evidence-based clinical decisions and deliver accountable, coordinated care to their patient populations. Harmonized data can connect disparate health IT systems to control data flow, decrease costs and reduce errors. The extensive interoperable functionality of NextGen Share allows providers to exchange structured, longitudinal C-CDA documents, helping to improve care collaboration, quality and safety.
Patient-focused Port: For detailed analytics on individual patients or entire patient populations, HIMSS14 attendees can view solutions such as NextGen® Population Health and NextGen® Patient Portal. With these tools providers can reach out to patients, identify gaps in care and suggest subsequent treatment opportunities for wellness and chronic disease management. The process helps manage risk and achieve both the financial and clinical outcomes of value-based purchasing, bundled payments and accountable care initiatives.
Revenue Cycle Management Excursion: In today’s new collaborative, accountable care-focused environment, health organizations are achieving better results by building meaningful community connections to improve care while also enhancing the bottom line. NextGen RCM Services provides revenue cycle expertise to help providers improve financial and clinical outcomes through best practices, automation and analytics. Utilizing NextGen RCM Services, physician practices can leverage professionals who understand emerging payment models and how to optimize NextGen® solutions to enhance the efficiency of their practice, optimize revenue streams and improve patient care.
No matter the destination, the NextGen Healthcare portfolio of products and services provides the necessary tools, systems, infrastructure and training needed to help practices, hospitals, community health centers and health systems transition to ICD-10 and evolve through Meaningful Use (MU) to patient centered medical home (PCMH) and accountable care organization (ACO) delivery models easily, quickly and intelligently.
“At HIMSS14, our new and improved booth will allow visitors to take a journey that showcases precisely how our solutions bring together powerful data management, clinical workflow and analytic methodologies to help businesses and clinical leaders as well as care managers improve patient outcomes, enhance the health of populations and reduce costs,” said Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare. “Our goal has been, and continues to be, helping our clients enhance practice efficiency, improve care quality and optimize revenue streams. Our integrated multi-product offering enables providers to leverage technology and RCM Services experts to simplify their business and IT functions allowing them to focus on clinical competency and patient care.”
Many additional solutions, system enhancements and services will also be demonstrated, including: NextGen® Health Quality Measures, NextGen® Dashboard and Physician Consulting Services. Furthermore, NextGen Healthcare interoperability solutions will be displayed at this year’s HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ during the conference.
