ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, announced the availability of its expanded platform for ambulatory providers, the Spring ‘21 release of NextGen® Enterprise. This award-winning solution goes beyond meeting the updated regulatory requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act. It includes capabilities that deliver the breadth and depth that providers need to meet the healthcare complexities of today and tomorrow. The platform also gives patients easier access to their medical records and to their care team, which strengthens the patient’s loyalty to the practice. The enhancements are designed to increase efficiency and optimize total cost of ownership for practices while improving the overall provider and patient experience.
This next generation integrated platform enables practices to evolve and thrive within the changing healthcare landscape. The evolution to value-based care is adding more pressure to an already complex delivery system. Patient expectations are increasing, and provider burnout remains a concern. According to a survey of healthcare and behavioral health providers by Xtelligent Healthcare Media, 62 percent still say that provider burden was a top challenge that their organizations face using multiple EHRs for behavioral and physical health.
Key features and benefits of NextGen® Enterprise Spring ‘21 include:
- A robust, integrated patient portal with better access to online engagement tools such as secure provider messaging and online bill pay
- Telehealth integration in both EHR and NextGen® Mobile app to treat patients remotely and bill for visits automatically
- Redesigned clinical templates for better usability and workflow
- A new cost estimation tool and group-scheduling capabilities
- Further integration with NextGen® Population Health for improved awareness at the point of care
- Support for 21st Century Cures Act regulatory requirements
“Spring ’21 release represents an important waypoint on a journey we began five years ago to create an integrated ambulatory platform designed for the future of healthcare,” said Rusty Frantz, chief executive officer for NextGen Healthcare “I’m excited for our clients and for their providers and patients to realize the benefits this release unlocks. It’s gratifying that we are playing a key role in strengthening the patient-provider connection. I am more optimistic than ever about NextGen Healthcare’s leadership in the transformation of ambulatory care, as we strive to exceed new patient and provider expectations for solutions and services.”

Enhancements to the new patient experience platform is one of many reasons why we are excited to make the upgrade.”
