Our goal is to provide the tools that make it easy to develop and integrate with us. Choose the "Learn More" link below the program that best aligns to your organization and application to begin.

Patient Access APIs for regulatory compliance

The NextGen Healthcare EHR platform is certified to the 2015 Certification requirements for patient electronic access to their clinical data. Our Patient Access platform provides the necessary tools you need to develop applications that individual patients can use to retrieve their clinical information from any active API-enabled NextGen Healthcare organization. There is no charge to develop a Patient Access app; simply click the link to sign up.

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.
