Adventist Health Integrates NextGen EMR and EPM Systems

NextGen Healthcare, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, a provider of ambulatory healthcare and connectivity solutions, has announced that Adventist Health System has fully integrated NextGen electronic medical records and enterprise practice management system.

Adventist Health System intends to implement the integrated NextGen clinical and financial platform in all of its employed physician practices. Adventist bought their first NextGen licenses in 2006. So far, NextGen enterprise practice management (EPM) has been deployed to more than 330 providers across the Adventist enterprise and NextGen electronic medical records (EMR) has been implemented in 70 practices totaling more than 225 providers. Each practice using NextGen is also sending and receiving laboratory information through an electronic interface to Adventist's inpatient system.

Brent Snyder, chief information officer of Adventist Health System, said: "We have been very pleased with NextGen EMR and NextGen EPM. We have a significant number of employed physician practices and urgent care centers successfully operating on the system and NextGen Healthcare has been very responsive to our needs. It's been good to have a partner and a product that is able to scale with us."
