Horsham, Pa.-based NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Inc., a provider of healthcare information and connectivity systems, announced that Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center will deploy NextGen Electronic Health Record (EHR), NextGen Practice Management, and electronic dental records in its 17 community health centers (CHC) across suburban Chicago and central and western Illinois.

Aunt Martha’s worked with NextGen Healthcare’s Grant Resources Center to identify grant opportunities and help fund the purchase of the technologies. Clinical values are captured in NextGen EHR as discrete data elements, helping CHCs streamline and simplify grant and outcomes reporting. For Aunt Martha’s, this capability can also help the organization compile the necessary data for participation in both regional and national health information exchange (HIE) initiatives, and explore financial incentives for data sharing under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center, headquartered in Olympia Fields, Ill., is a full range provider of primary medical, dental, and behavioral health services to over 80,000 individual clients per year.
