NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, today announced the 5-year anniversary of NextGen® Share, the company’s free interoperability platform that allows caregivers to capture and share key health data within and outside their networks, improving clinical, financial and patient outcomes. NextGen Share facilitates exchange with Carequality, a national vendor-agnostic network of which NextGen Healthcare was a founding member. Carequality enables disparate health systems and clinics to effortlessly share clinical records.
“NextGen was one of the early leaders committed to enabling frictionless interoperability in the healthcare industry,” said John S. Beck, Chief Solutions Officer and Executive Vice President for NextGen Healthcare. “Since we launched NextGen Share five years ago, we’ve seen real progress. Millions of patients are receiving better care as a result of their doctors being better informed about their overall health.”
St. Louis-based Signature Medical Group is one of the largest private, multispecialty practices in the Midwest. The practice formed in 2001 when a few local physicians came together with a shared interest in providing quality medical care. NextGen Share is the interoperable, integrated solution they depend on to achieve their common goal.
“As an independent physician-owned group, collaboration is what fuels our practice. Our physicians count on timely access of patient information to make the best care decisions. With NextGen Share we collaborate on a new level with streamlined access to clinical data from hospitals and external sources,” said Scott Paneitz, CIO of Signature Medical Group.
In the last five years, NextGen Share has connected 5,390 practices and 139,381 providers in 49,848 locations. NextGen Share’s Direct Message Service has sent and received 160 million messages, supported by a directory of 1.5 million trusted recipients—the largest in the country.
There is power in interoperability. NextGen Share, Carequality, and other networks provide significant benefits, including:
- Real-time access to 230 million patient records across 4 billion encounters
- Secure data exchange without leaving the EHR
- Automated record retrieval with payer partners, saving time and staff resources
- Direct messaging capabilities with 1.5 million trusted recipients
