NEXTGEN HEALTHCARE LAUNCHES CERTIFIED HIT CONSULTANT PROGRAM

Horsham, Pa. - January 25, 2010 - In anticipation of significant growth in healthcare IT adoption, NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and the leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, today launched the NextGen Certified HIT Consultant Program.

"Following the recently proposed criteria for demonstrating meaningful use of electronic health records, NextGen Healthcare envisions considerably greater demand in 2010 for certified EHR systems implementation specialists to guide medical providers through the qualification process for government incentives," said Scott Decker, president of NextGen Healthcare. "With this consultant certification program, we expand our commitment to support the medical provider in improving overall health outcomes by helping them become meaningful users of electronic health records systems."

This new program also expands NextGen Healthcare's commitment to Regional Extension Centers, which will commence in early 2010 with the announcements of the first group of award grantees. The company will now provide exclusive NextGen solution certification training to the healthcare IT consulting community and to Regional Extension Centers on NextGen® EHR, NextGen EPM, and ancillary modules. All classes will be conducted at NextGen Healthcare's corporate training facilities located throughout the country.

In April 2009, NextGen Healthcare announced its Money-Back Guarantee Program around meaningful use to assure the NextGen EHR solution will always evolve to meet the requirements for federal stimulus reimbursement programs. With the addition of this HIT consultant certification program, NextGen Healthcare is demonstrating to the medical provider community its confidence in providing the best software and services available to help them become meaningful users.
