Birmingham, AL — NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, today announced it has entered into an agreement with MEDSEEK to create the NextGen Enterprise Patient Portal.
Under the agreement, NextGen Healthcare will distribute MEDSEEK’s industry leading enterprise eHealth solutions to ambulatory and inpatient organizations to aid in improving patient-provider communications across health systems.
Building on the success of the existing NextGen Patient Portal, which has enabled thousands of providers to improve clinical workflow and efficiency through electronic patient communication, MEDSEEK’s eHealth ecoSystem will be introduced to strengthen the NextGen portfolio for integrated delivery network clients. The new NextGen Enterprise Patient Portal, powered by MEDSEEK, will provide patients with ways to manage their own healthcare. Through a single online portal, patients can access clinical and non-clinical staff within an entire health system, as well as view test results, schedule appointments and request prescription renewals. Healthcare enterprises using NextGen products and services will advance current workflows and address Accountable Care Organization needs with the ability to consolidate patient information from disparate electronic health record and hospital systems into a single, intuitive view.
“This agreement underscores NextGen Healthcare’s commitment to the marketplace and to expanding our portfolio to foster better coordination of care,” said Scott Decker, president of NextGen Healthcare. “By integrating with MEDSEEK’s technology, we can provide health system clients a universal front door to their consumer and patient populations across the continuum of care. This has been the trademark of the NextGen Patient Portal, and we will now expand to encompass enterprise-wide capabilities.”
MEDSEEK’s enterprise eHealth solutions include the award-winning, Meaningful Use-certified eHealth ecoSystem, the eCost pricing transparency solution and proprietary ecoSmart patient precisioning technology.
“We’re excited to be able to announce this agreement with NextGen Healthcare,” said Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK CEO. “NextGen chose MEDSEEK as its enterprise patient experience offering, and we believe the relationship benefits both our organizations as we work together to offer healthcare providers the best possible patient and clinical solutions.”
