NextGen Healthcare, Inc., a leading provider of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, announced that Delaware Valley Community Health, Inc. (DVCH), has leveraged NextGen® Population Health to identify and prioritize nearly 60,000 people for COVID-19 vaccinations in Philadelphia and Montgomery counties since the COVID-19 pandemic began. DVCH operates eight Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in Southeastern Pennsylvania. NextGen Healthcare was recently recognized in the 2021 Population Health Vendor Overview Report as a highly rated vendor working with FQHCs.
As a longtime user of NextGen® Enterprise EHR, DVCH clinics began utilizing NextGen® Population Health to identify patients at the chart level and address health disparities and other barriers facing COVID-19 vaccination administration. The population health solution with geospatial mapping helps link health data to specific zip codes, allowing DVCH to determine how to allocate resources to better meet the communities’ healthcare needs. In addition, data generated from claims information helps DVCH reduce admission and readmission rates at regional hospitals which was a primary goal for the center.
“NextGen® Population Health allows us to make proactive outreach to the most vulnerable patients in our communities to get them vaccinated in priority order,” said Isaiah Nathaniel (CPHIMS), chief information officer for Delaware Valley Community Health. “The same technology will be instrumental to our mission after the pandemic. NextGen® Population Health will empower us to identify, locate and offer treatment to our community—and just possessing a solution capable of that discovery and outreach will be highly beneficial to our business and the communities we serve.”
“During the pandemic, NextGen® Population Health has performed for DVCH in a way that helped stabilize their operations and provide a clear picture of who needed to be vaccinated first and when,” said John Beck, chief solutions officer for NextGen Healthcare. “When the pandemic abates, the solution will continue to help DVCH clinics identify and treat patients who need treatment the most, especially in underserved populations.”
