NextGen Healthcare and Mirth Launch Enterprise Interoperability Platform

NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, and its sister company, Mirth, LLC, a global leader in health information technology, announced today the launch of NextGen® Share, a national Health Information Service Provider (HISP) enabling clients to connect with external providers using industry standards widely adopted by ONC 2014 Edition certified EHR products. NextGen Share equips providers with Direct Secure Messaging capabilities for efficient coordination of care and meeting Meaningful Use Stage 2 Transitions of Care objectives.

A nationwide network connecting clients and non-NextGen Healthcare providers to support secure clinical data exchange, NextGen Share is the first joint solution from NextGen Healthcare and Mirth since Quality Systems, Inc., acquired Mirth Corporation in September of last year. It combines key strengths of NextGen Healthcare and Mirth products to create an interoperability solution that facilitates easy data exchange among providers aimed to improve care coordination processes and meet meaningful use (MU) requirements. NextGen Share will facilitate safe, secure, accurate and quick exchange of clinical data and provider referrals without leaving the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system.

As a HISP, the solution provides secure connectivity between NextGen Healthcare and non-NextGen Healthcare providers, a searchable provider directory, and message translation between supported protocols. Leveraging NextGen Share, clinical care information, C-CDAs, and attachments including referral request letters, intake notes, and images such as a photo taken of the patient’s injury, can be transmitted between peers, practices and health systems locally and nationally across all technology platforms. Additionally, users can search to find connected providers and organizations, compose and exchange a referral with clinical documents, and count such transactions toward their MU stage 2 reporting. The structured clinical information exchanged through NextGen Share empowers healthcare organizations by providing actionable data which can be discretely imported into the patient’s record.

“Finding ways to breakdown walls to interoperability and data fluidity is the catalyst that moves healthcare forward. As a result, organizations require interoperability partners who understand the needs of health care systems, patients and clinicians alike,” said Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare. “Interoperability holds tremendous promise in the use of data derived from patient care and our goal is to fulfill the vision of using technology to provide the healthcare industry with an unprecedented level of data exchange. By combining a robust electronic health record solution with first-class interoperability tools, we have developed the necessary tool to enable clients to easily communicate and share important clinical information via a secure and integrated messaging service with any provider. With increased competition and care quality and reimbursement at stake, it is imperative that healthcare organizations make the right choices in supportive technology and with the launch of NextGen Share, we are pleased to be on the leading-edge of innovation.”
