New Leadership, Improved User Experience and Solutions Geared toward Value-based Care and Reimbursement

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 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, today kicked off its annual User Group Meeting (NextGen™ ONE UGM) at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.

To launch the conference, QSI/NextGen Healthcare's new President and Chief Executive Officer Rusty Frantz will address attendees in a general session that marks the beginning of a new era for the Company under his leadership. Frantz, who assumed his leadership role July 1, 2015, will address ways in which the Company is dedicated to improving every aspect of the user experience - from product performance, usability and scalability to knowledge exchange and client support. This underscores the Company's commitment to the long-term success of its clients as they transition to value-based care and reimbursement.

"As the new CEO of QSI/NextGen Healthcare, my highest priority is to evaluate the experience we offer our clients in the ambulatory arena, where our greatest strengths lie," said Rusty Frantz, president and chief executive officer for QSI NextGen Healthcare. "NextGen ONE UGM provides a great opportunity to present our strategic vision for the Company as we focus greater on our large, installed ambulatory client base."

"Having one of the largest installed user bases in the healthcare information technology space allows us to make a significant impact on our clients' abilities to successfully navigate and influence changing healthcare models," Frantz explained. "We want to provide them with the necessary solutions to stay relevant and thrive amid this evolving healthcare market as they move from fee-for-service toward value-based reimbursement. We also look forward to sharing the news of our recent agreement to acquire HealthFusion, and their cloud-based MediTouch platform."

Keynote speaker Billy Beane, general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team whose story is told in the book and film, "Moneyball," joins an impressive list of presenters covering several top-of-mind industry topics, including enhanced product usability and physician satisfaction; managed cloud services; cost containment, accountability and risk-sharing; population health management solutions and value-based financial management services.

The meeting affords users a shared platform to discuss and learn about industry developments, product enhancements and emerging trends that improve healthcare delivery while reducing costs.
