NextGen Healthcare Spotlights Patient-Provider Engagement at 24th Annual User Group Meeting


Industry Experts Convened at UGM ’21 to Share Technology and Clinical Insights and Best Practices; Announces Six New “Excellence in Healthcare” Awards Showcasing Innovative Client Solutions

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 2021-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXGN), a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, hosted its 24th Annual User Group Meeting (UGM) Nov. 8-10, providing the latest insights from top healthcare experts to thousands of registrants. The official theme of UGM ’21 was “ENGAGE”—a dual call to action for attendees to explore trends and policies affecting ambulatory practices in today’s complex healthcare environment and to leverage technology to optimize engagement with their patients. The conference convened clients across all specialties to learn about the very latest technological innovations in healthcare.

The informative three-day event featured moving keynote addresses by distinguished surgeon Dr. Marty Makary and Paralympic medalist Amy Purdy. Both The New York Times best-selling authors have extensive healthcare experience from vastly different vantage points—provider and patient. NextGen Healthcare emphasizes the importance of using technology to enhance the patient-provider connection.

In addition, over 100 healthcare sessions were offered, including the future of whole-person care and technology solutions designed to empower the next era of healthcare.
