NextGen Healthcare Chosen by Capital Women’s Care as Long-Term Revenue Cycle Management Partner

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, announced today it has entered into a 10-year agreement with Capital Women’s Care, LLC to continue providing revenue cycle management (RCM) services for long-term financial sustainability and growth.

As a NextGen Healthcare client since 2002, Capital Women’s Care, one of the largest private OB/GYN practices in the mid-Atlantic region with 45 locations and 178 providers, has utilized unparalleled revenue cycle services and technology to optimize the patient experience and more effectively coordinate care through synchronized clinical, administrative and revenue processes, which results in improved outcomes.

Under the new long-term agreement, Capital Women's Care will continue to leverage NextGen RCM Services to optimize their use of the NextGen® product suite with best practice billing and collection services, eligibility verification services, denial management, account management and data analytics. Furthermore, Capital Women’s Care will utilize NextGen RCM services to further support their business and position the organization for continued growth and financial sustainability.

“In the healthcare industry, proper reimbursement for healthcare services is crucial to the financial stability of any business, and there is simply too much at stake to let administrative burdens hamper our organization’s ability to practice medicine and financially thrive,” said Debbie Redd, president and chief executive officer for Capital Women’s Care.

“We are committed to retaining the expertise needed to leverage IT Technology to streamline the revenue cycle, enhance cash flow and remain competitive. With AR days consistently under 20 for the practice -- significantly below historic highs -- we have seen dramatic results partnering with NextGen for our revenue cycle management function and anticipate seeing more. Partnering with NextGen allows us to focus on the front end processes as they focus on the back,” said Redd. “We are thriving in healthcare today because RCM Services handles the business side of our practices while our doctors focus on what they do best -- patient care.”

“The evolution to value-based medicine places an emphasis on revenue cycle management services that can efficiently manage the business of transforming patient care into positive financial outcomes and we are pleased that Capital Women’s Care has placed their confidence in us,” said Monte Sandler, executive vice president of NextGen RCM Services. “The continued success realized by Capital Women’s Care demonstrates our commitment to optimizing revenues by employing the right people, processes and technology. We look forward to building on these achievements and helping Capital Women’s Care continue to navigate the ever-changing healthcare environment over the next 10 years.”
