“Better is not achieved by regressing to the mean—the mean of critical care systems built on the noble mission of treating sickness—but rather, by enabling innovation and invention at the front lines of wellness, in the community-based, patient-physician interaction. Together, I believe we can make healthcare better,” says Rusty Frantz, president and CEO, NextGen Healthcare. Headquartered at Irvine, CA, NextGen Healthcare provides tailored solutions to improve the quality of care that ambulatory practices provide and also streamline their operations. The result? healthier patients and happier providers.

NextGen Healthcare’s solutions empower patients to take control of their health to improve outcomes and increase loyalty to the ambulatory care providers. The firm enables clinicians to be more productive and engaged, and is devoted to driving predictable financial outcomes. NextGen Healthcare thus ensures frictionless interoperability and promotes more seamless information exchange. By providing insights to identify gaps and manage risks, they strive to better coordinate care.

NextGen—Practice Management and Medical billing Software

As a small practice, one needs to provide optimal care in a competitive industry while running a successful business.

NextGen medical practice management solutions allow its users to capture their practice’s true revenue potential. The firm’s solutions are easy to learn, simple to use, and sophisticated to help meet today’s complex billing challenges. “Our clinical care solutions include EHR, population health, mobile solutions, and consulting services. They help practices optimize their strategy to deliver high-quality care,” adds Frantz.

Clients can choose NextGen software as per their practice— NextGen Office for small practice and NextGen Enterprise for large practice.

NextGen® Office is a cloud-based EHR which is compatible with any tablet, smartphone, desktop, or laptop—touchscreen-enabled, ONC-Certified, and HIPAA-compliant.

Helping Prestigious Clients

To illustrate a the power of NextGen solution, in one instance NextGen Healthcare was approached to help a care clinic build solutions that would empower multidisciplinary teams to document and share patient information accurately and consistently. The clinic’s efforts were complicated by the fact that they lagged behind in technology and how the documentation was very cumbersome and labor-intensive. Healthcare providers were frustrated by their inability to access and share information seamlessly. Their EHR solution didn’t support efforts to store information in a unified format, which meant staff had to manually to track, gather, and reconcile data. They also had challenges with sharing information across the care continuum and in obtaining a complete patient history.

The clinic chose NextGen Healthcare to help them manage their scheduling and EHR needs. Team members adapted easily to the user-friendly interface of the NextGen Enterprise EHR and NextGen Appointment Scheduler—creating almost-immediate workflow efficiencies. As a result, the clinic overcame its technological challenges and was able to provide more holistic care. Thus, implementing NextGen Healthcare solutions helped the Care Clinic to make it easier for clinicians to complete documentation, create and share comprehensive, multidisciplinary stories of complex patients, consolidate and prepare patient information for partnering primary care practices, specialty clinics, surgical practices, and other care providers in the community.
