Providers and executives gather to envision the future of healthcare and the technology needed to enable its effective delivery
NextGen Healthcare Inc. (NASDAQ:NXGN), the leading provider of ambulatory-focused healthcare technology solutions, hosted the inaugural NextGen Leaders in Healthcare Summit November 29–December 1, offering a think tank-like environment for creative, forward-thinking working sessions to exchange ideas and explore the evolution of care delivery in the US. Seventeen healthcare thought leaders from across the US participated, with representation from physicians as well as corporate leaders, from organizations such as Capital Women’s Care, CareMount, Desert Oasis, Texas Healthcare (Privia) and Ortho Tennessee.
“This is a time of significant change in health care,” said NextGen Chief Medical Officer and Summit host, Dr. Betty Rabinowitz. “Ambulatory practices need to overcome many novel and complex challenges to maintain market essentiality. The summit provided participants with a unique opportunity to share with colleagues from across the country and the NextGen executive leadership team, ideas, best practices and a vision for the technology that will be needed to support a transformed healthcare.”
Summit participants represented all aspects of the ambulatory healthcare market, including federally qualified health centers and single specialty groups including behavioral and addiction health, a burgeoning field. Summit discussion topics included heterogeneous care delivery systems, risk- based incentives, and the technology that will be needed to meet healthcare needs in the future.
“Participating in the NextGen Leaders in Healthcare Summit offered a timely opportunity for me to interact with fellow thought leaders and experts to explore the healthcare issues that keep us up at night,” said Dr. Geralyn Prosswimmer, Chief Medical Officer for Hunterdon Healthcare in Northwest New Jersey. “It was refreshing to have an open platform to brainstorm ways to solve these issues, regardless of technology or current capabilities.”
“Taking time out to envision the future with the very leaders tasked with creating that reality is paramount to our joint long-term success,” said Next Gen CEO Rusty Frantz. “This Summit is just one of the many ways NextGen Healthcare is partnering with our clients in delivering innovative solutions that truly empower the transformation of ambulatory care.”
