Friday, August 09, 2013
Horsham, Pa. – 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, today announced it has selected Clinical Architecture’s Symedical® Server for its terminology integration architecture. Employing this integration architecture will enhance interoperability and clinical terminology management within the NextGen® Hospital Solutions suite.
NextGen Hospital Solutions will utilize the Symedical Server solution to assist in terminology interoperability with different information technology systems, resulting in the exchange of more meaningful data. Symedical Server is a software architecture with engines, frameworks, application programming interfaces (APIs) and other components designed to actively manage the utilization of terminologies in healthcare.
Symedical Server will automate the processes of normalizing terms to a consistent domain-specific format, standardizing data to required terminology standards and seamlessly integrating them into NextGen Hospital Solutions suite. By using this solution, NextGen Healthcare has reduced the development effort required to make its Hospital Solutions products compliant with the interoperability requirements for Meaningful Use Stage 2 (MU2) and ICD-10 conversion. NextGen Healthcare has also created a platform that will allow for the management of terminology into the future, regardless of changes made to standards or government requirements.
With this partnership, NextGen Hospital Solutions clients will benefit from improved functionality and more accurate and consistent translation of terminologies to meet the interoperability requirements outlined in MU2.
