NextGen Office Receives ONC Health IT Cures Update Certification
NextGen Healthcare, Inc., a leading provider of innovative, cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, announced NextGen Office, its award-winning electronic health record and practice management (EHR/PM) platform for small practices, has achieved the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC-Health IT) 2015 Edition Cures Update Health IT certification via Drummond Group LLC, an Authorized Certification Body (ACB). ONC-ACB approval certifies that NextGen Office demonstrates the functionality eligible clinicians need to successfully participate in quality programs requiring certified EHR technology. This includes the latest interoperability standards needed to support compliance with the 21st Century Cures Act information-sharing requirements. Earlier this year, the company announced NextGen Enterprise was the first complete EHR to be certified.
“This certification underscores NextGen Healthcare’s commitment to interoperability within the healthcare continuum,” said David Sides, president and chief executive officer of NextGen Healthcare. “Obtaining certification from the ONC demonstrates our continued focus on paving the way for practices of all sizes to meet complex technical requirements and comply with applicable government regulations, while enabling providers to focus on what matters most — caring for patients.”
Independent ambulatory practices can have peace of mind that the NextGen Office platform is not only ONC Health IT Cures Certified, but was also named the No. 1 Small Practice EMR/PM (10 or fewer physicians) in the 2022 Best in KLAS: Software & Services Report.
NextGen Office, which met the requirements for 2015 Edition Cures Update Health IT certification, is an EHR/PM solution for ambulatory healthcare providers that helps increase clinical productivity, enriches the patient experience, provides patients with expanded access to their own data, reduces healthcare disparities, and helps to ensure healthy financial outcomes.
With more than 20 years of testing experience across various industries, Drummond Group brings a high level of technical expertise to this process. Since becoming an ONC-ACB in 2010, Drummond Group has conducted more than 3,000 health IT tests and certifications.
