According to NextGen, Adventist intends to implement the NextGen clinical and financial platform in all of its employed physician practices. Adventist bought its first NextGen licenses in 2006; since then, NextGen EPM has been deployed to more than 330 providers across the Adventist enterprise, and NextGen EMR has been implemented in 70 practices totaling more than 225 providers. Each practice using NextGen is also sending and receiving laboratory information through an electronic interface to Adventist’s inpatient system.
