NextGen adopts EHR Developer Code of Conduct to improve care

NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: QSII) and a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions, announced today its commitment to adopting the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Association's EHR Developer Code of Conduct to improve care, increase efficiencies, enhance patient safety and provide better outcomes.

“The principles contained in the Code of Conduct are principles NextGen Healthcare has long adhered to. The adoption of the Code reaffirms our commitment to supporting safe healthcare delivery and demonstrates our continued efforts to provide clients with innovative tools that allow for the delivery of better patient care”

The Code was developed by the EHR Association (www.himssehra.org) through engagement with stakeholders spanning government constituents, healthcare provider associations and consumers. Periodically, the EHR Association will review the Code and update as needed. The Association encourages all EHR developers — regardless of membership in the Association — to adopt the Code. The Association provides implementation guidance and information necessary for EHR developers to adopt the Code (http://www.himssehra.org/ASP/codeofconduct.asp).

NextGen Healthcare commits to focusing on the following specific protocols comprising the EHR Developer Code of Conduct upon adoption:

  • General business practices
  • Patient safety
  • Interoperability and data portability
  • Clinical and billing documentation
  • Privacy and security
  • Patient engagement

"The principles contained in the Code of Conduct are principles NextGen Healthcare has long adhered to. The adoption of the Code reaffirms our commitment to supporting safe healthcare delivery and demonstrates our continued efforts to provide clients with innovative tools that allow for the delivery of better patient care," said Dr. Sarah Corley, chief medical officer for NextGen Healthcare.
