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 is a recipient of the Surescripts White Coat of Quality Award, marking its third time earning this prestigious honor. The White Coat of Quality Award is Surescripts’ highest recognition for software providers that uphold strict standards for clinical quality and best practices in e-prescribing.
Established in 2010 as part of Surescripts’ Quality Management Program, the annual White Coat of Quality Award provides a systematic approach to e-prescription quality. Organizations that follow the program’s rigorous guidelines can mitigate inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistent e-prescriptions, issues that can result in unintended consequences and costly workflow interruptions to prescribers and pharmacists.
Recipients of the awards are evaluated on the following key requirements:
- Senior leadership commitment to a goal of zero electronic prescription content errors;
- Measurement and reporting of e-prescription content error levels;
- Implementation of software updates to reduce e-prescription content error levels; and
- Communication and training for end-users on how to better utilize their e-prescribing system to reduce errors.
“As a three-time recipient of the Surescripts White Coat of Quality Award, NextGen Healthcare’s dedication to producing quality improvements in e-prescribing is one to be mirrored by others in the industry,” said Ajit Dhavle, Pharm.D. MBA, director of quality management, Surescripts. “We are pleased to recognize all those committed to implementing our proven e-prescribing best practices and who worked hard to earn the White Coat of Quality distinction.”
“As we as a healthcare community continue to strive for excellence, the quality and safety of the care patients are receiving is improving,” said Dr. Sarah Corley, chief medical officer for NextGen Healthcare. “Receiving the White Coat of Quality Award again underscores our commitment to not only applying best practices to the use of e-prescribing technology, but also to continuous quality improvement and training of prescribers. Working closely with Surescripts, we are committed to continuing to improve the quality, efficiency, and accuracy of the e-prescribing experience.”
