IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, today announced the availability of the next generation of its behavioral health suite. Building upon an award-winning electronic health record (EHR) and practice management system, the NextGen® Behavioral Health Suite is the industry’s only platform that integrates comprehensive physical, behavioral and oral health in one software solution. This upgraded software solution includes the most advanced capabilities from the company’s Topaz Information Solutions® acquisition, with new features and specialized content including:
- Packet Navigation – Clinicians can define workflows without requiring outside assistance
- Content for Residential Treatment Programs – Enhanced clinical content for targeted treatment reduces total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) and Bed Board Solutions – Single sign-on (SSO) allows clinician documentation in inpatient and residential settings
NextGen® Behavioral Health Suite is ideal for physician practices, community health clinics, behavioral health centers and public health departments that offer targeted case management, crisis intervention, residential substance use disorder (SUD) services, psychiatric rehabilitation, Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) support and more. Additionally, it enables easy data exchange across the care continuum and mobile access allows clinicians to provide informed care outside of a clinic or office setting.
“We chose the NextGen Behavioral Suite because it provides robust client results to boost whole-person care for our clients,” said Sherman Hayes, chief information officer for Geminus Corporation, a Regional Health Systems company. “Utilizing the platform has allowed us to broaden our outreach and services programs to deliver care to the community we serve.”
“Research shows the strong interconnection between mental and physical health, yet for years the healthcare industry has struggled with coordinating care treatment,” said John Beck, chief solutions officer for NextGen Healthcare. “With so many people suffering from various behavioral health conditions during this pandemic, it has never been a more important time to offer a solution that delivers whole person care.”
In a recent survey by Qualtrics, 66 percent of people reported higher levels of stress since the COVID-19 outbreak.
Through an ideal combination of organic development and acquisition, NextGen Healthcare’s offering is among the most differentiated and practice-friendly in the industry. In addition to purpose-built specialty solutions, the company offers telehealth, revenue cycle management, a patient engagement platform and managed cloud services. The result is a unified solution that providers from any specialty can adapt to their practices and more efficiently treat their patients.
