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, announced today it has entered into an agreement with Reno Sparks Tribal Health Center (RSTHC).
Having outgrown the capabilities of an end-of-life software system, RSTHC, a tribally owned and operated clinic located on the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony (RSIC), will deploy NextGen® solutions, including NextGen® Ambulatory EHR, NextGen® Practice Management and NextGen® Electronic Dental Record (EDR), to improve organizational efficiencies, drive growth and comply with extensive tribal health reporting requirements and regulatory requirements mandated by healthcare reform.
RSTHC serves three Great Basin Tribes – the Paiute, the Shoshone, and the Washo, providing essential services to more than 1,100 tribal members and approximately 7,000 Urban Indians.
Under the agreement, RSTHC will deploy NextGen Practice Management to increase revenue through enhanced billing and charge capture capabilities, and improved operational efficiency. NextGen Ambulatory EHR and NextGen EDR will be used to integrate RSHC’s clinical, scheduling, pharmacy, ophthalmology, behavioral health and dental services to create a comprehensive medical management platform.
As a tribal health center, RSTHC requires system capabilities beyond the standard clinical and financial protocols to meet its reporting requirements. NextGen® solutions provide RSTHC the integrated reporting utilities necessary to support the variety of documentation needed to satisfy federal and state regulations and funding requirements.
Furthermore, RSTHC will leverage NextGen solutions to transition its dental and behavioral health services to Electronic Health Records (EHR) and will also look to the Company to help prepare for Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the fast-approaching ICD-10 transition.
“Due to the inadequacies of our current software, we’ve had to leverage four different systems offering limited and disjointed reporting and little care coordination capabilities,” said Angie Wilson, director, Reno Sparks Tribal Health Center. “In our extensive search for another system, we found that NextGen Healthcare offers the only solutions designed to not only meet, but exceed the specific reporting requirements for our organization. We are confident that NextGen Healthcare technology will help us improve the quality of patient care we provide to our patient population.”
Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare, commented: “The requirement to shift to value-based reimbursements and outcomes reporting is prompting tribal health centers like Reno Sparks to re-visit their operational strategies and evaluate current healthcare IT partners. As a result, we are seeing an increase in organizations seeking to replace disjointed, inadequate systems with our integrated multi-product technology offering. This allows us to work with our clients in supporting and addressing the preventive and treatment needs of American Indian and Alaska Native patients and communities, like RSTHC.”
