Southampton, Pa. – November 8, 2010 – Tri-County Eye Physicians & Surgeons, PC today announced that it earned a 2010 Best Practice Award from NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare information systems and connectivity solutions headquartered in Horsham, Pa. Recipients were honored at the NextGen Users Group Meeting (UGM) in Orlando, Fla., before an audience of more than 3,400 physicians, practice administrators, hospital leaders and other healthcare professionals from around the nation.
NextGen Healthcare’s Best Practice Awards program honors three physician practices each year for their exemplary use of NextGen® clinical, financial and connectivity solutions. This year, winners leveraged NextGen® Ambulatory EHR, NextGen® Practice Management and NextGen® Patient Portal to transform their practices, improve patient care and achieve significant return-on-investment.
”Implementation of NextGen Healthcare’s complete software suite of electronic health records and practice management software over the past two years has allowed our medical practice to decrease overhead and increase revenue while improving the quality of eye health care for our patients,” said Richard B. Prince, MD, FACS, of Tri-County Eye Physicians & Surgeons.
“It’s been a win-win situation for both our patients and physicians alike,” added Prince. “With the advent of Clinical Quality Measures as part of the Meaningful Use stimulus incentive program for physicians, (enacted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for optional participation beginning in 2011), the NextGen software platform will become even more critical for practices wanting to stay compliant with clinical outcomes analysis. It will also help us remain and ahead of the curve of ‘pay-for-performance’ profiles, which appear to be the next big paradigm in the shifting landscape of medical reimbursement profiles.”
