NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

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.

This is the first EHR platform I used. It is very professionally done with an aesthetically pleasing interface and has broad functionality. I would recommend it to a colleague who is a single practitioner with a small solo practice. I would not, however, recommend it to a group practice owner as I have found many alternatives that are just as good for a noticeable pricing difference with SimplePractice’s new fee structure.

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.

I have not had to contact support which is nice. If I have a question, I am typically able to find the answer within the help section.

Alternatives Considered

NextGen® Practice Management Solutions

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

I ultimately ended up leaving SimplePractice for TherapyMate in March with the price increase. My reasoning was, that even though the interface is not as aesthetically pleasing, TherapyMate had all of the features I needed in my EHR system at dramatic savings per month. There were of course some pros and cons I had to weigh out for both of them, but ultimately the price of TherapyMate superseded any pros for SimplePractice.

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.
