Horsham, Pa.-based NextGen Healthcare Information Systems Inc., a subsidiary of Quality Systems Inc. and a provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, today announced an agreement with the Chicago-based American Medical Association (AMA), the nation’s largest physician organization, to offer physicians NextGen Ambulatory EHR and NextGen Practice Management on a new AMA online platform.

The AMA platform will enable physicians to assess and meet their clinical and practice needs. It will provide physicians access to information, products and services with a single, secure sign-on. The platform, which will launch nationwide by the beginning of 2011, is currently being beta tested in Michigan in collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society.

NextGen Healthcare’s SaaS subscription model includes its EHR and practice management systems and serves as an alternative to the traditional software license purchase model. Under the SaaS model, users will be able to access the hosted NextGen solutions through the AMA platform, helping them save on the typical upfront costs of purchasing a system. NextGen Healthcare’s SaaS offering packages everything a physician practice needs to reach the next level of healthcare automation, including hosting, implementation, training, maintenance, image scanning, and client support.
