Our award-winning, 2011 CCHIT certified NextGen Ambulatory EHR offers unique features that set us apart from other systems:
* Pre-built clinical templates and workflow for over 26 specialties ensure complete, accurate documentation stored in a standard format.
* Disease management templates capture discrete data at the point of care to meet clinical reporting guidelines for pay-for-performance programs.
* ePrescribing that automatically checks prescriptions against a patient’s medications and allergies.
* Integration with the NextGen product suite to enable consistent, real-time clinical and administrative workflow among providers, hospitals, and patients.
Permission-based user log-ins and audit trails prevent unauthorized access to records and maintain data integrity. Data is time stamped with the user’s identification.
Developed by specialists, built-in workflow and clinical templates for over 26 specialties offer options for documenting specialty-specific HPIs, procedures, histories, assessments, and more.
Coding Optimization & Compliance
E&M coding calculator helps to prevent lost charges and to maximize reimbursement based on audit-proof documentation.
Disease management templates for diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic diseases, prompt providers to enter required information to meet clinical guidelines at point of care.
Providers can determine overdue patient exams, screenings, immunizations, and tests, create orders, and customize schedules, ensuring patient compliance and preventive care.
Lab & Device Connectivity
An extensive offering of lab interfaces and electronic data exchange with diagnostic devices provides physicians with real-time access to up-to-date data for higher quality of care.
ePrescribing & Medications Module
To help prevent interactions and errors, prescriptions are automatically checked against a patient’s medications and allergies before electronically transmitting to the pharmacy.
Printed documents and clinical images can be captured from outside sources and imported directly into a patient’s electronic chart for a complete, accurate, and up-to-date medical record.
Forms are automatically populated with patient, treatment authorization data and provider information. Inbound forms can be scanned or transferred electronically into the patient record.
During an encounter, patient data are collected and stored as discrete data, which enables your practice to easily generate reports for outcomes analysis, pay-for-performance, medication recalls, patient populations, business analysis, and more – right from the EHR.
