Quality Systems, Inc., known to its clients as NextGen Healthcare, today announced significant product enhancements to its EHR-agnostic Mobile Suite, a tool equipped with more than 800,000 unique clinical concepts and 1.8+ million synonyms, that brings physicians closer to that goal by ensuring the accurate capture of physicians’ narrative and integration with EHR terminology. This platform upgrade is the first major product enhancement from Entrada following its acquisition by NextGen Healthcare, earlier this year.
Providers often work from multiple care settings – including outpatient clinics, surgery centers and hospitals – each with unique workflows and charting requirements. NextGen Mobile Suite now provides clinical documentation support specifically for the hospital setting, enabling providers to switch between inpatient and outpatient use cases from within a single mobile interface. With real-time access to the hospital census list, providers can use speech-driven documentation options (speech-to-text, transcription and remote scribe) to capture robust patient notes at the point-of-care during hospital rounds.
The enhancement now provides clinical documentation support specifically for the hospital setting, enabling providers to switch between inpatient and outpatient use cases from within a single mobile interface. It also provides mobile access to the industry-leading IMO Problem IT Terminology diagnosis code search tool, powered by Intelligent Medical Objects.
“Industry dynamics are requiring physicians to be proficient in technology across multiple systems, devices and care settings. Our goal is simple – to provide easy-to-use solutions that allow clinicians to remain focused on delivering quality patient care and practice meaningful medicine,” said Rusty Frantz, President and CEO of NextGen Healthcare. “With these new enhancements, our platform allows physicians, and their entire care team, to remain productive by reducing the administrative burden, ultimately enabling better workflow management across systems, both in the ambulatory and inpatient setting alike.”
