Integrated Platform Enables Seamless Patient Experience and Expands Access to Care

REMOTE-FIRST COMPANY/WEST HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 25, 2023-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, today announced that Mindful Care, the first-ever same-day mental health company focused on providing urgent psychiatric care, has selected NextGen® Behavioral Health Suite to support its short- and long-term goals. Based in West Hempstead, NY, Mindful Care offers urgent mental health care in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and New York. Plans are in motion for nationwide expansion, with the end goal of bridging gaps in care so everyone has access to support when they need it. The mental health provider operates with three key focuses: psychiatry and medication, therapy (individual and group), and addiction recovery.

“Urgent psychiatric care has for too long been a crucial missing element in the U.S. care continuum, but Mindful Care is changing that,” said Tamir Aldad, MD, MBA, chief executive officer at Mindful Care and a practicing psychiatrist. “For someone who is struggling, a six-week wait is unacceptable; it can be a matter of life and death. To carry out our mission, we need a robust healthcare IT solution that offers seamless interoperability and can grow with us as we expand. That’s why we chose NextGen Healthcare to collaborate with us on this journey.”

“Mindful Care’s innovative approach is producing better healthcare outcomes by providing crucial care to patients whenever and wherever they need it,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth & strategy officer and executive vice president at NextGen Healthcare. “Like Mindful Care, we are working to bridge gaps so that providers have critical insights at the point of care as they work to deliver whole-person health. We’re doing this with highly performant solutions that maximize interoperability and integrate seamlessly – taking the friction out of the experience for patients and providers.”

NextGen Healthcare’s integrated solutions facilitate Mindful Care’s ability to offer same-day appointments through online scheduling and NextGen Virtual Visits™. The NextGen Healthcare Behavioral Suite is the industry’s only platform that integrates comprehensive behavioral health, primary care, oral health, and human services in one software solution, granting providers quick, easy access to patient data. Mindful Care will implement the full suite of integrated solutions powered by NextGen® Enterprise.

NextGen Healthcare will demonstrate the NextGen Behavioral Health Suite at NatCon23, May 1-3 in Los Angeles. Visit booth #821 or stop by the Palm Tree Court to connect with the NextGen Healthcare team. To schedule a meeting at NatCon, sign up at nextgen.com.
