Solutions to provide more interactive patient experience, better coordinated care through open interoperability and mobility
Thousands of the Company's clients attending the annual NextGen
Healthcare Users Group Meeting (UGM) in
The innovative tools introduced during UGM Include:
- Mobile Patient Portal: Currently, nearly 12 million patients across 2,000+ practices are enrolled in NextGen® Patient Portal, representing approximately 45 percent of the company's client base. With the launch of Mobile Patient Portal, patients can view present and historical medical records and lab results, and refer to educational resources to better understand and track their course of treatment. Ultimately, this real-time sharing of medical records saves practice staff members significant time as patients can update their medical history, allergies, insurance and demographic information and also request medication refills rather than contacting the physician or practice directly. Mobile Patient Portal is expected to enhance efficiency, improve communication and help control costs.
- NextGen® EHR iOS7 app expands NextGen Healthcare's mobility efforts through this natively integrated app designed for iPad® users. A complete, real-time solution designed to optimize workflow and productivity for physicians in high-volume settings, the NextGen EHR iOS7 app enables clinicians to review a chart before entering the exam room; input real-time information such as vitals and medications from the exam room, and access EHR information after hours with a quick, simple swipe of the screen.
- NextGen® Care is a comprehensive and coordinated population health management solution that supports value-based care by providing clients with a data-driven approach to patient population that proactively manages and improves both care and outcomes while encouraging disease management and prevention. The enhanced feature set includes risk stratification, care management, patient enrollment, referral management, data sharing, analytics and a Patient Population Hub designed to empower the provider to more efficiently manage a large patient population.
