How can you truly improve the health of your patient population?

THE ANSWER: Offer meaningful, targeted, and coordinated individual interventions – when preventing disease or treating it – at the point of care, in office or out.

To keep care quality high, costs low, and succeed with new value-based payment models, you must deliver accountable, coordinated care. You need to successfully manage chronically ill patients and "rising-risk" patients by deploying and monitoring preventive care programs.

Ensure you have the infrastructure to succeed. It doesn't need to take years to build (or replace) a technology foundation to support accountability for your population. It's easier than you think. And we can help.

Risk Stratification

Risk Stratification

Group patients by chronic conditions, severity of illness, and by demographics.

Configuration is pre-set within the application for easy quality reporting. Risk scoring is provided by Milliman.

Patient Engagement

Patient Engagement

With NextGen Patient Portal, providers can proactively send alerts to their patients anytime, anywhere through automated outreach based on each patient's contact preference. Patients become active participants in their own healthcare.

Referral Management

Referral Management

As the gateway to NextGen Share, youll simply create a referral, find an external provider, attach documents, and transmit the referral package. NextGen Share is included with NextGen Care.

Data Sharing

Data Sharing

You cant collaborate if you're not sharing information. It's the key driver of collaborative care. With stringent reporting requirements, you need a way to track your outreach efforts, results, and outcomes; and to provide that data to stakeholders outside of your organization. With NextGen interoperability tools, you can export information and send to payers, practice or organization leadership, or anyone else to show you are providing better, proactive care.



Data analytics tools from NextGen Healthcare allow you to access critical data about your patients' utilization; identify and address problems, leverage resources effectively, and improve patient care. Slice and dice your information based on predefined criteria and take action! Identify problem areas, high-risk patients, and flag them for immediate intervention. You'll improve clinical outcomes while reducing care delivery cost. Additionally, ACO participants can easily share this with various third-party payers.
