NextGen Healthcare Selected by Cherry Health to Streamline Operations


Large Michigan Federally Qualified Health Center Cites Customizable Packaged Solutions and Comprehensive Offering as Key to Improving Efficiencies

REMOTE-FIRST COMPANY/IRVINE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2022-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, today announced NextGen Enterprise® has been selected as the electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) solution of choice by Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Cherry Health. Headquartered in Grand Rapids with 20 locations throughout western Michigan, Cherry Health chose NextGen Healthcare for its integrated and versatile platform. With a network of 80+ providers and over 800 healthcare professionals working in its facilities, the organization serves more than 65,000 patients annually. Cherry Health has adopted the full suite of NextGen Healthcare solutions, including the latest version of NextGen® Enterprise, as well as NextGen® Financial Suite, NextGen Virtual Visits™, NextGen Mobile, NextGen® Patient Experience Platform, NextGen® Population Health and NextGen® EDR.

Cherry Health undertook a comprehensive evaluation process and cited functionality, versatility and an integrated platform as must-haves in selecting its preferred technology partner. NextGen Healthcare delivers these features, as well as many tools that streamline processes for improved patient-provider interaction. NextGen Enterprise will help the FQHC improve its provider experience, with the goal of reducing provider burnout – a common problem plaguing FQHCs. A recent survey by The Physicians Foundation found that 60% of physicians feel burned out and 33% feel hopeless.

“Staff shortages, compliance concerns and rapidly growing patient demand are placing unprecedented strains on healthcare professionals,” said Srinivas (Sri) Velamoor, chief growth and strategy officer at NextGen Healthcare. “FQHCs like Cherry Health, which offer health services that support whole-person care, benefit from an integrated platform that simplifies workflows, enhances outcomes and improves the patient-provider experience.”

“NextGen Healthcare provides the seamless platform our organization needs,” said Glenda Williams, chief information officer for Cherry Health. “The integrated healthcare records and highly configurable templates integrated with tools such as virtual visits that improve the client experience are just a few reasons NextGen Healthcare was our chosen technology partner.”

Cherry Health team members will join thousands of other healthcare professionals at the 25th annual NextGen Healthcare User Group Meeting taking place Nov. 6-9 in Nashville. Register here.
