NextGen Healthcare, Inc., the leading provider organization of ambulatory-focused technology solutions, announced that it has integrated Appriss Health prescription monitoring and tracking analytics into NextGen® Office, the company’s cloud-based, small practice electronic health record (EHR) solution. These enhanced capabilities enable provider organizations to more effectively prescribe and dispense controlled substances. The technology also maximizes consumer health and safety by checking state records for controlled substances prescribed by multiple provider organizations for an individual, all within one system at the point of care.
