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, today announced NextGen® Electronic Dental Record (EDR) version 4.2 has been certified as an ONC-ATCB Complete EHR by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®).
NextGen EDR version 4.2 was certified as an ONC-ATCB Complete EHR on May 9, 2012 and complies with all clinical quality measures for Eligible Providers. The additional software NextGen EDR version 4.2 relied upon to demonstrate compliance includes NextGen® Ambulatory EHR, v5.6 SP1.
NextGen Ambulatory EHR version 5.6 SP1 (Certification ID: CC-1112-345777-1) was also certified as an ONC-ATCB Complete EHR on September 30, 2010 and complies with all clinical quality measures for Eligible Providers. The additional software NextGen Ambulatory EHR version 5.6 SP1 relied upon to demonstrate compliance includes First DataBank for 170.302(a), Health Quality Measure HQM for 170.304(j), Active Reports for 170.304(j), NextGen® Patient Portal for 170.304(g), Rosetta 5.6.5 for 170.302(k), 170.302(l), 170.304(f), 170.304(h), and 170.304(i).
“We view this ONC-ATCB certification of NextGen EDR an essential benchmark for performance that should be used by clinical professionals to evaluate the quality of the software they use. As constraints on dentists’ time become more prevalent, our dental clients are turning to technology-driven solutions that can increase practice efficiencies and allow them to focus on delivering quality care to their patients," said Donn Neufeld executive vice president and general manager of the QSI Dental Division. "To help address this need, we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible solutions for their practices.”
The ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2011/2012 criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more – but not all – of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.
“CCHIT is pleased to be testing and certifying products enabling companies to offer these products to providers who wish to purchase and implement certified EHR technology and achieve meaningful use in time for the 2011-2012 incentives,” said Karen M. Bell, M.D., M.S.S., Chair, CCHIT.
NextGen EDR version 4.2 certification number is 1112-345777-2. ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification conferred by CCHIT does not represent an endorsement of the certified EHR technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services nor does it guarantee the receipt of incentive payments.
The Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®) is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the public mission of accelerating the adoption of robust, interoperable health information technology. The Commission has been certifying electronic health record technology since 2006 and is approved by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB).

This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements regarding future events, developments, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue and net income), are forward-looking statements within the meaning of these laws and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions and forecasts, however, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Moreover, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are outlined below. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and installation process; the possibility that the products will not achieve market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; uncertainties concerning threatened, pending and new litigation against the Company including related professional services fees; uncertainties concerning the amount and timing of professional fees incurred by the Company generally; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; general economic conditions; and the risk factors detailed from time to time in Quality Systems' periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of the fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
