Prestigious Ophthalmic Practice Center in Southern U.S. Leverages NextGen® Enterprise EHR with NextGen® Mobile to Improve Practice Efficiency and Patient Access

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 3, 2021-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, today announced that Eye Center South, a renowned ophthalmic and optometric group with locations throughout Alabama, Georgia and Florida, is using NextGen® Mobile to boost practice efficiency and increase patient volume and access. A longtime user of NextGen® Enterprise, the practice adopted NextGen Mobile to provide field doctors with immediate access to a patient’s medical records, prescription lists, appointments and detailed care plans from previous providers. With 14 locations and 29 different providers, Eye Center South uses the mobile solution to document patient care anywhere and anytime, and unburden providers from administrative tasks such as keeping up with the sheer volume of medical transcription.

Approximately 95% of Eye Center South’s patients originate from referrals from other eyecare or healthcare providers, and these relationships are critical to maintaining a healthy practice. Speed, accuracy, and personalization of correspondence help strengthen relationships with referring providers.

“Our surgeons and specialists see anywhere from 25-50 patients each day, and in less than a minute, their verbal dictation is complete using NextGen Mobile,” said Travis Wright, Regional Director of Operations for Eye Center South. “The most significant benefit of this technology is ease of use. Since we rely on referrals, it’s imperative we use a solution that allows our doctors to quickly document and retain the integrity of a patient’s previous medical notes. With NextGen Healthcare’s integrated EHR solution, our providers can pivot from one patient to the next seamlessly and can complete dictation when it’s convenient for them.”

“It’s satisfying to see how NextGen Mobile has benefited our ophthalmic and optometric clients like Eye Center South and propelled patient care to greater levels of ease and convenience,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth & strategy officer for NextGen Healthcare. “Our integrated mobile technology has revolutionized what it means for providers to deliver comprehensive care from anywhere, at any time.”
