NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, has launched the latest version of its patient portal.
Featuring Spanish and two dialects of Chinese apart from English, the new portal provides clients with more communication with diverse populations and also assisting in more effective care coordination and patient engagement.
The Portal can be used to send secure messages, coordinate patient appointments, manage chronic conditions, apart from sending/receiving forms, documents, updates, and e-mails.
In addition, it allows physicians to connect and communicate with patients online and imports structured data directly into the NextGen Ambulatory EHR in a secure manner.
The portal will also improve the company’s administrative efficiency by reducing phone calls and paperwork, apart from cutting costs on printing and postage.
NextGen Healthcare executive vice president and general manager Michel Lovett noted communication with patients is vital to delivering high-quality care.
"As providers and patients embrace online access to their health information in today’s digital age, the demands on practices to provide better care coordination and chronic disease management have never been greater," Lovett added.
