    To start, Nextgen PM is NOT well-suited for companies who are looking for a could-based product—you will be required to house this software on your own server (this will force that company to maintain their own infrastructure). The solution is great for a company looking for a PM/EHR combo that communicates well with each other. The two modules are owned by the same company and does not require a costly API/bridge to be built between the two programs.

    The best scenario is a small non-profit clinic who needs a great EMR but cannot afford one like EPIC. I might also recommend this to colleagues who are starting a small business because I think PF would be a good, easy, and more affordable to get up and running. I think this EMR makes less sense in the setting of large academic institutions who need lots of easily manipulable data and a huge amount of support.

    Pros

    NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

    • Ability to save favorite phrases and templates to make charting more efficient for providers.
    • Ability to interface with Question Diagnostics for certain laboratory tests.
    • Ability to send and receive tasks to other user(s) on the system as well as send future tasks and reminders to yourself.

    • Document storage- You can upload documents and attach them to specific patients. As well as flag documents that need to be signed, and assign them to specific doctors.
    • Charting- Very detailed integration for charting.
    • Reporting- We really enjoy the reports we can pull from within the software.

    Cons

    NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

    • The software requires annoying/disruptive updates.
    • The software is housed on our own server. We have found that cloud-based solutions are much more convenient.
    • At times, the system is a bit "slow."
    • The canned reporting/BI tool is not as malleable as many of the other solutions we have used and/or trialed.
    • We were able to achieve cost-savings through some other systems.

    • Have Physician Assistant as a provider status.
    • Make the notes section of each patients account displays towards the top of page and not the bottom.

    Alternatives Considered

    NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

    NextGen was more scattered and less streamlined than either Allscripts or EPIC

    NextGen is hard to use as far as medical records. Practice Fusion is user friendly. There is a great knowledge base for questions asked. Practice Fusion takes all the guess work out of the day.

    Return on Investment

    NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

    • Nextgen did a good job of transitioning our practice away from paper health records.
    • I believe that the Return on Investment would have been much higher had we gone straight to a cloud-based tool.
    • By getting our feet wet with Nextgen, we have a pretty good understanding of Practice Management software. In other words, we could plug and play with most systems on the market.
