NextGen Healthcare Information Systems Inc. has entered into an agreement with Dell in the Health IT marketplace to jointly market health information technology products and services to medical practices, hospitals and physician networks. Although, the financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. Under the agreement, computer giant Dell will market, sell and support NextGen’s ambulatory EHR, practice management, inpatient clinicals and inpatient financials products as components of Dell’s electronic medical records platform for hospitals and physicians. Using the latest cloud technology platform, Dell will also host NextGen applications in an effort to simplify access and data management for Dell and NextGen clients. Dell also becomes the “hardware platform-of-choice” for all NextGen products, as well as for NextGen’s internal use. EMR will leverage the capabilities of both organizations to build on the strengths of our success and capitalize on unprecedented market opportunities as mentioned by Patrick Cline, president of Quality Systems. The adoption and use of electronic health records are a major component of the health-care reform law approved last year. Health-care providers could receive funding to support the installation of health information technology systems under the American Revitalization and Recovery Act. NextGen has been preparing for the growing use of electronic health records over the years.
