Trinity Health expands NextGen technology use
Trinity Health of Novi, Mich., has purchased 1,200 bundled NextGen EHR and NextGen EPM (Enterprise Practice Management) software licenses from NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quality Systems.

This purchase expands Trinity's NextGen EPM use as it purchased 400 licenses in 2006.

According to the Horsham, Pa.-based company, the licenses will enable all employed providers in the Trinity network–comprising 44 acute-care hospitals, 379 outpatient facilities, 33 long-term care facilities and numerous home health and hospice program–to access NextGen’s technology platform.

NextGen EHR was recently named a pre-market conditionally CCHIT Certified 2011 Ambulatory EHR. The NextGen EPM product allows healthcare organizations with multiple locations to centralize appointment scheduling, billing, collections and other business processes, according to NextGen.
