Large Medical and Surgical Eyecare Services Organization Adds Patient Experience and Pay Solutions to Ambulatory Platform

REMOTE-FIRST COMPANY/GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 11, 2023-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, today announced that Eye Health America, a rapidly growing premier medical and surgical eyecare services provider, has added NextGen® Patient Experience Platform and NextGen® Pay powered by InstaMed to enhance the patient experience. The decision to add these capabilities to its core NextGen® Enterprise EHR and Practice Management platform is part of a concerted effort to integrate workflows to benefit patients and providers.

Leveraging NextGen Enterprise, Eye Health America streamlined processes for its providers across the Southeastern United States. With NextGen Patient Experience Platform and NextGen Pay, patients can make real-time appointments and online payments and gain quick access to their medical records. These solutions seamlessly integrate into NextGen Enterprise EHR, reducing workload and mitigating burnout for clinicians and staff at Eye Health America’s 23 clinics and seven ambulatory surgery centers.

“Eye Health America is continuing to take friction out of the patient journey and drive meaningful patient and provider satisfaction,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth and strategy officer at NextGen Healthcare. “When practices take a comprehensive approach by utilizing our patient engagement solutions in conjunction with NextGen Enterprise EHR and PM, providers feel less strain and see better outcomes, and patients feel more empowered to participate in their care.”

“As we’ve expanded, we’ve integrated each practice onto the NextGen Healthcare platform,” said Sara Rapuano, a senior vice president at Eye Health America. “We are using these integrated solutions as they were intended, reducing the need for ancillary tools. This includes payment processing and appointment scheduling – functionality that is in line with our patient-centric focus. NextGen Healthcare offers all the technology tools we need in one place.”
