Solution Meets the Unique Needs of the American Indian Community
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 26, 2022--
NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, today announced that Lake County Tribal Health, a community health center in Northern California, has selected NextGen® Enterprise Electronic Health Records (EHR), NextGen® Enterprise Practice Management (PM) and NextGen® Patient Experience Platform to improve patient outcomes and optimize provider workflow. Lake County Tribal Health will also implement NextGen® Behavioral Health, NextGen® Therapy Suite and NextGen Virtual Visits™, providing safe and convenient access to care for its 12,000 patients.
Lake County Tribal Health emphasizes whole person care by offering an array of services including medical, dental, obstetrics, pediatrics, pain management, physical therapy, dermatology, behavioral health, diabetes prevention program and treatment, chiropractic, acupuncture and tribal health. Its adoption of NextGen Virtual Visits dramatically improves Lake County Tribal Health’s ability to serve its patients where they are, improving outcomes by encouraging patients to seek the care they need.
“We found that NextGen Healthcare’s integrated platform allows our patients to feel like their doctors have a more complete understanding of their healthcare needs and history. For example, a primary care doctor can see if a patient has been to a specialist or visited a hospital recently. Not only does this assist the provider in the diagnosis, it makes the patient feel like the doctor knows them on a more personal level. This is especially important when dealing with cultural sensitivities that are present in our community,” said Emmanuel Yennyemb, chief operations officer for Lake County Tribal Health.
Also of critical importance was NextGen Healthcare’s ability to provide a robust reporting system that offers relevant analytics and meets the complex requirements a tribal federally qualified health center must adhere to. Previously, Lake County Tribal Health providers found themselves bogged down in an antiquated, cumbersome system that contributed to burnout. The NextGen Enterprise platform allows the organization to expand its community care model while improving provider productivity and simplifying its billing process.
“NextGen Healthcare’s solutions enable highly integrated, whole-person health and ensure that our tribal health partners can deliver comprehensive and high-quality community care,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth and strategy officer for NextGen Healthcare. “Our partnership with Lake County Tribal Health illustrates our ability to tailor solutions to emphasize what matters most to our clients. We are encouraged by the advances our tribal health partners are achieving in building a healthier community with our solutions.”
