REMOTE-FIRST COMPANY/NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, announced today that it has expanded its collaboration with American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), the leading source of foot and healthcare information. Through this collaboration, award-winning NextGen® Office, a cloud-based small practice electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) solution, is the only platform to incorporate blueprints developed exclusively with APMA. These 10 new podiatry blueprints address a variety of top podiatric issues including diabetes, dermatitis, assorted pain, infection, and injuries. NextGen Healthcare is the only EHR that supports the APMA Registry, and the company will be showcasing the results of this exclusive APMA collaboration at the APMA Annual Scientific Meeting “The National”, July 13-16 in Nashville.
“Podiatrists rely on APMA as the leading organization for tools and resources,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth & strategy officer and executive vice president at NextGen Healthcare. “Our exclusive collaboration with APMA will deliver innovative new blueprints to podiatrists and empower them to drive greater efficiency and effectiveness when documenting and providing care.”
NextGen Healthcare is an essential partner of the APMA Registry, providing clinically relevant data to APMA for use in research and data tools. Leveraging NextGen Healthcare data, the APMA Registry supports APMA research, policies, and projects.
“APMA’s alliance with NextGen Healthcare benefits podiatrists,” said Dyane Tower, DPM, MPH, MS, CAE, senior medical director at APMA. “We collaborate with NextGen Healthcare because of its support for the podiatric profession. Their team is focused on making it easier for podiatrists to spend more time caring for patients.”
NextGen Office is a preferred EHR for APMA members, as it offers clinical workflows and content specific to podiatry. Using the platform, podiatrists can touch, talk or type encounter notes directly into the clinical documentation. The solution empowers patients to schedule appointments electronically, request prescription refills, and schedule virtual visits. Importantly, NextGen Office also allows the care team to connect with each other through direct messaging and referral exchange.
Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), headquartered in Bethesda, MD, is the leading resource for foot and ankle health information. Currently, the organization represents a vast majority of the estimated 18,000 podiatrists in the country.
