Open Access Developer Program
Our Open Access Developer Program is designed especially for Clients that want to develop their own API application for their organization's internal use. There is no fee to develop or deploy an application under this program. If an API application developed by a NextGen Healthcare client is deemed beneficial to other NextGen Healthcare clients, Clients are offered the option to move toward the API Distribution Program to release the application to other Clients in the NextGen Healthcare community. If API platform usage is limited to certified API technology, NextGen Healthcare Clients are able to distribute their application as they see fit.
