About NextGen

NextGen provides a comprehensive line of software solutions and services to help healthcare facilities provide high-level care, optimize revenue and manage information. Not only do they help medical facilities manage the complex daily operations that are often present in the industry even for smaller providers, they help healthcare facilities of all sizes grow and thrive as businesses.

Software Solutions

NextGen offers software solutions for a variety of healthcare practices, large and small. Their focus on not only providing efficient solutions for legally compliant care, but helping providers operate as a profitable business makes NextGen a company to watch.

Hospitals & Health Systems

The software helps larger, multi-location operations share clinical and administrative data in a legally compliant way while extending EMR and EHR capabilities to smaller community practices.

Group Practices

Because the software is flexible and customizable, NextGen allows for the standardization of patient information across multiple providers without crippling the individual provider’s ability to document their own workflow. The integration of clinical and administrative data helps facilities maintain a complete and fluid picture of the patient’s needs.

Small Practices & Groups

While larger organizations may find it more practical to licenses the software outright, smaller practices can benefit from NextGen’s solutions using their software-as-a-service option. It gives them the ability to benefit from the power of NextGen’s software without a lot of up-front cost.

Corporate Culture

One of the single most important indicators of a company’s “personality” is it’s corporate culture. At NextGen, employees, who must follow NextGen’s strict code of ethics, are repeatedly encouraged to go to great lengths to respond to the needs of clients, respond to their clients’ challenges as if they were their own, and be involved in their clients’ businesses as if they were a partner. In addition to NextGen’s work ethic and customer service requirements, the company and their employees donate money and time to several national charities, including Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity and the American Cancer Society, among others.

Certified HIT Consultant Program

NextGen offers exclusive training on many of their software modules so you can learn how to help providers achieve “meaningful use.” There are classes held at NextGen’s corporate training facilities nationwide (see website for details).
