IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 19, 2020--
NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, today announced that its 23rd annual User Group Meeting (UGM), will take place virtually November 9-12, 2020.

“We’re doing things differently this year to keep our clients safe while still delivering the same caliber of content they’ve come to expect from us,” said Rusty Frantz, president and chief executive officer for NextGen Healthcare. “COVID-19 accelerated healthcare change, and the transformation continues as the industry moves toward managed and value-based care. Our agenda is filled with topics and insights designed to prepare practices to thrive in this new reality.”
