NextGen Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Elected HIMSS EHR Association Vice Chair

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 that its chief medical officer, Sarah Corley, M.D., FACP, has been named HIMSS Electronic Health Record (EHR) Association vice chair, following the organization’s annual elections earlier this month.

The EHR Association is a trade association comprised of electronic health record (EHR) companies that emphasize interoperable EHRs nationally in hospital and ambulatory care settings. The EHR Association operates on the premise that the rapid, widespread adoption of EHRs will help improve the quality of patient care as well as the productivity and sustainability of the healthcare system.

“I am honored to be elected as the EHR Association vice chair. As both a medical provider and chief medical officer of a leading EHR vendor, I am focused on ensuring that providers have access to the solutions they need to meet industry challenges,” Corley said. “We have the opportunity to help support and improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare through information technology. It is essential that vendors work together to improve outcomes for patients and achieve greater operational efficiency for healthcare organizations. Through the collaborative efforts of this experienced leadership, we can improve the quality of healthcare provided in this country, and I look forward to helping move healthcare forward.”

Corley continues to serve part-time as a primary care internist in the metropolitan Washington, DC area. She was recently elected a member of the EHR Association executive committee and previously served as the chair of the EHR Association Patient Safety Workgroup, collaboratively working with member companies and key stakeholders to advance the safe use of EHRs. She served a four-year term as Governor of the Virginia Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP) and a six-year term on their National Medical Informatics Subcommittee. She served two terms as a Commissioner for the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT). Corley represents the ACP on the Physicians Electronic Health Record Coalition. She received post-graduate training in Medical Informatics at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). She has used EHRs for the past 20 years and has spoken extensively on the subject. Her research interest lies in using EHRs to improve quality in medical practices.

“We are pleased to see the EHR Association’s recognition of Sarah’s professionalism, leadership, collaborative spirit and expertise,” said Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager for NextGen Healthcare. “Just as Sarah has helped shape our dedication to the positive impact that EHRs can have on patient outcomes, we anticipate that she will continue to make similar contributions to further build on the Association’s accomplishments.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
