Mirth Connect by NextGen Healthcare Receives ONC Health IT Cures Update Certification


REMOTE-FIRST COMPANY/IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2023-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, today announced its clinical data exchange solution, Mirth® Connect, has achieved the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC Health IT) 2015 Edition Cures Update certification. Mirth Connect met the rigorous standards for security of healthcare data required to receive certification by SLI Compliance®, an ONC Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB).

Effective interoperability between providers is critical for positive patient outcomes. The complexity between different organizations, data types and formats, and the variety of connectivity methods used to exchange patient information requires a high degree of flexibility and customizability to meet specific healthcare needs. Mirth Connect was created with this in mind. ONC-ACB certification signifies that Mirth Connect complies with all applicable certification requirements in support of the 21st Century Cures Act. With this certification, users have greater assurance of data integrity as well as optimal security when exchanging patient data.

“Mirth Connect simplifies data exchange so that providers can glean meaningful insights that lead to improved patient outcomes,” said David Sides, president and chief executive officer at NextGen Healthcare. “The certification of our open-source application, which has the flexibility, compatibility, and functionality to integrate into most healthcare systems, is yet another example of how NextGen Healthcare is leading the way in interoperability and secure data exchange.”

“The seamless exchange of data that Mirth Connect enables is unrivaled,” said Robert Werner, senior interface developer at University of Toledo Medical Center. “I’ve been using integration engines for 25 years, and Mirth Connect, by far, blows away the competition.”

Last year, NextGen Healthcare announced NextGen® Enterprise was the first complete EHR to receive ONC Health IT Cures Certification. Soon after, NextGen® Office, the company’s award-winning electronic health record and practice management (EHR/PM) platform for small practices, also attained certification.

A worldwide integration engine leader, Mirth Connect is used by domestic and international hospitals, health systems, clinics, provider groups, labs and testing facilities, public health agencies, government entities, health IT organizations, pharmacies, and more. These organizations rely on Mirth Connect to deliver compliant data with speed and accuracy.
