27 Jul NextGen Healthcare and Availity Launch Health Plan/Physician Data Sharing Program
NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. and a provider of health care information systems and connectivity solutions, announced the introduction of a collaborative care project with health insurer, Florida Blue, and Availity, a health information network.
In a release, the company noted that the program enables physicians to exchange clinical data and patient care summaries with the health plan through integration with the NextGen Ambulatory EHR. The organizations are joining to make patient-specific clinical information accessible at the point of care to both providers and payers concurrently, helping them more effectively coordinate care for patients by flagging potential care gaps and care opportunities.
Three provider groups-Family Care Partners (Jacksonville), HeartWell, (Miami) and Baptist Health South Florida-have agreed to implement the joint project to improve health care delivery and foster collaborative coordinated care for all Florida residents.
