NextGen Healthcare Information Systems Inc., a Horsham, Pa.-based subsidiary of Quality Systems Inc. and a provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, announced it has entered into an agreement with MEDSEEK (Birmingham, Al.) to create the NextGen Enterprise Patient Portal.
Under the agreement, NextGen Healthcare will distribute MEDSEEK's industry leading enterprise eHealth solutions to ambulatory and inpatient organizations to aid in improving patient-provider communications across health systems.
Building on the success of the existing NextGen Patient Portal, which has enabled thousands of providers to improve clinical workflow and efficiency through electronic patient communication, MEDSEEK's eHealth ecoSystem will be introduced to strengthen the NextGen portfolio for integrated delivery network clients. The new NextGen Enterprise Patient Portal, powered by MEDSEEK, will provide patients with ways to manage their own healthcare. Through a single online portal, patients can access clinical and non-clinical staff within an entire health system, as well as view test results, schedule appointments and request prescription renewals. Healthcare enterprises using NextGen® products and services will advance current workflows and address Accountable Care Organization needs with the ability to consolidate patient information from disparate electronic health record and hospital systems into a single, intuitive view.
