HORSHAM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, today announced the unveiling of its new population health management solution, NextGen® Population Health (PH), to help providers meet Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) goals, including improving quality, collaborative care, patient engagement and measurement for better health outcomes. This new solution, along with a number of other recently launched products and services, will be demonstrated during the 2013 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition March 3 – 7, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
NextGen® PH is a protocol-based communication solution that tightly integrates with the NextGen® Ambulatory EHR product platform to aid physicians in enhancing care by ensuring better patient compliance with treatment plans. NextGen PH enables physicians to automatically reach out to patients to schedule recommended care plans with automated protocol-based reminders. They can also engage patients and facilitate communications more efficiently using email, text messages, NextGen® Patient Portal and Interactive Voice Reminders. Providers can also track efforts, analyze performance and view customizable ROI reports and Dashboards. Revenue associated with hands-on patient communication and care is tracked, captured and processed through an integrated workflow enabled by NextGen® Practice Management to maximize pay-for-performance reimbursement.
The NextGen Healthcare portfolio of products and services provides the necessary tools, systems, infrastructure and training needed to help practices, hospitals, community health centers and health systems evolve through Meaningful Use (MU) to PCMH and ACO delivery models easily, quickly and intelligently. Many additional solutions and system enhancements will be demonstrated at the company’s HIMSS13 booth, #5313, including NextGen Ambulatory® EHR 8 Series, NextGen® Health Information Exchange (HIE), NextGen® Dashboard, NextGen Patient Portal, and NextGen Hospital Solutions.
Additionally, demonstrations of NextGen Healthcare’s interoperable and connectivity solutions will be displayed at this year’s HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ from March 4 – 6.
“In today’s new collaborative, accountable care-focused environment, healthcare organizations must make meaningful community connections and improve care, while also enhancing the bottom line performance,” explained Steven T. Plochocki, president and chief executive officer for Quality Systems, Inc. “Our newly released intuitive smart solutions and enhanced services span a broad range of healthcare systems including medical group and dental practices and small hospitals, and support pay-for-performance models like Accountable Care Organizations and Patient-Centered Medical Homes. We’re at the forefront of advancing technologies that foster collaborative care and are excited to share our latest innovations during HIMSS13.

This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements regarding future events, developments, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue and net income), are forward-looking statements within the meaning of these laws and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions and forecasts, however, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Moreover, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are outlined below. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and installation process; the possibility that the products will not achieve market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; uncertainties concerning threatened, pending and new litigation against the Company including related professional services fees; uncertainties concerning the amount and timing of professional fees incurred by the Company generally; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; general economic conditions; and the risk factors detailed from time to time in Quality Systems' periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of the fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
