UGM 22 Keynote Speakers Include Innovation Theorist John Nosta and Inspirational Paralympic Medalist Amy Purdy
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 13, 2022-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, has announced that it will hold its 25th annual User Group Meeting (UGM) Nov. 6-9 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. This year’s UGM, in which thousands of clients will convene to share best practices and learn about industry trends, marks the return to an in-person format following the COVID-19 pandemic. NextGen Healthcare will welcome two dynamic keynote speakers. John Nosta, an enthusiastic innovation theorist, renowned speaker and author, will open the conference. Whole-person care advocate, Paralympic medalist and “Dancing with the Stars” sensation Amy Purdy will share her story as the event concludes.
The theme of UGM 22 embodies the company’s vision: better healthcare outcomes for all. Participants will learn how to improve patient engagement, reduce physician burnout, target higher-risk patients to close gaps in care, confidently assume risk in value-based care (VBC) models, exchange and utilize meaningful health data information, achieve better financial outcomes, and much more.
“Ambulatory healthcare is at an exciting inflection point,” said David Sides, president and CEO of NextGen Healthcare. “The growth opportunities for ambulatory practices are remarkable, as care increasingly shifts from hospitals to lower-cost and more efficient settings. UGM 22 content will further guide and empower our clients to accelerate growth while improving outcomes for all within their communities.”
“As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we value the opportunity to connect with our peers to discuss how technology is helping us build healthier communities,” said Isaiah Nathaniel, vice president and chief information officer at NextGen Healthcare client Delaware Valley Community Health (DVCH). “We appreciate NextGen Healthcare leaders facilitating this in-person learning opportunity.” DVCH is part of the NextGen® Community Health Collaborative, a first-of-its-kind initiative offering data benchmarking, comparative analytics, and a forum for members to share best practices.
