NextGen information system selected by Avita


NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems and a provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, has reached an agreement with Avita Health System for the deployment of a range of NextGen solutions across its entire enterprise.

Avita Health System will use NextGen solutions to improve organizational efficiencies and drive growth as it strives to comply with regulatory requirements mandated by healthcare reform.

Avita Health System is comprised of two critical access hospitals (Bucyrus and Galion) and over 20 medical offices throughout Crawford and Richland Counties in Ohio.

Avita Health System selected NextGen Healthcare to replace several end-of-life software systems after outgrowing the functionality and capabilities of their legacy system. Avita will also look to NextGen to help the enterprise prepare for Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the transition to ICD-10.

"We recognized the pressing need to implement a fully integrated system along with a technology partner that would streamline our processes, improve our organizational efficiencies, and support our continued growth," said Alex Reed, director of information services for Avita Health System. "Our overall mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of those we serve and with NextGen Healthcare, we found a partner with a proven track record that shares our vision for improving patient outcomes and achieving concrete results."

Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare, said that as the impetus to improve the quality of healthcare accelerates, so does the need to champion all the components that come with the successful, future delivery of healthcare.

"Partnering with Avita Health System is indicative of us doing just that,” he said. “Our scalable, multi-product offering supports the infrastructure needed for healthcare organizations to stay ahead of the curve and thrive in our nation's evolving healthcare system. By putting the right solutions in place, we are providing our clients the tools necessary to optimize the patient experience and better coordinate care, which ultimately results in improved outcomes."
