Meaningful Information Flow Across the Healthcare Landscape

Just because applications aren’t interoperable yet doesn’t mean your data have to be stuck in a silo. You’ve invested too much in EHRs, MU, and value-based care infrastructures to let data exchange limitations obstruct your progress.

  • Our interoperability platform opens silos and lets applications share information across the enterprise, between care settings, and throughout a community.
  • As part of the process, we improve the quality and consistency of your data, and even automatically link and aggregate content into a patient-centric view of information.
  • Even if your applications can’t support all the data you want, you can put it all together in NextGate.

More than 20 years of experience in healthcare data management
  • Faced with major throughput issues, we turned to NextGate for help. They provided a migration path from eGate 4.5.3 to Java CAPS 5.x. and evaluated our X12 environment. Ultimately, NextGate increased our processing speed by a factor of 10! They were responsive, focused, and understood the criticality of our needs. The results were far beyond my expectation. NextGate sets the standard by which all consulting eGate/Java CAPS engagements should be judged.

  • NextGate’s team was instrumental in implementing Sun’s Java CAPS and eIndex 5.0 to manage the flow of patient information into our Electronic Medical Record system. Their team effectively integrated our disparate systems, facilitating the exchange of information amongst our providers and improving data management across our network. Their exclusive pattern analyzing tool expedited the data loading process while enhancing the matching capabilities found within eIndex to easily identify potential duplicates. The creation of unique identifiers for both patients and providers now enable our staff to accurately locate, match and link records from multiple sources, improving the overall delivery of care to our patients. Working with NextGate’s staff has been a very rewarding experience, and we look forward to continuing and strengthening our partnership with them in the future.

  • Capital Health is the largest healthcare district in Nova Scotia. In 2008 we undertook a project to merge Cancer Centre patient registrations with the hospital’s enterprise patient registration system. A key objective of this project was improving patient care. The project team decided to use an enterprise data management tool called eIndex to create a Master Patient Index (MPI) and assist in resolving patient duplicates.

    The project team had no prior experience with eIndex. And we had no prior experience with the world of matching algorithms, assigned weights and matching thresholds. Fortunately NextGate Solutions came to our rescue. On very short notice NextGate was able to identify our needs and put a plan in place for meeting them. NextGate was able to work with Capital’s epidemiologists to tailor the matching algorithm to meet our needs, and provide the team with guidance in assigning weights and establishing thresholds. NextGate delivered multiple training sessions remotely for both functional and technical team members. NextGate technical personnel were onsite to assist during our project Go Live and subsequently provide post implementation support.

    The project was a great success. Our customer, the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre was very pleased with the outcomes. eIndex has been performing flawlessly for Capital Health since implementation. Capital Health continues to partner with NextGate for their knowledge and guidance as we work to enhance our solution.

    The entire NextGate team of Andy, Dan, Gina, and Marc has been a pleasure to deal with. They are always quick to respond and willing to share their knowledge and expertise to help solve our problems. They always have the answers!

  • When planning the complex task of implementing an EMPI (eIndex), we turned to NextGate for their expertise and experience. Their team managed the project seamlessly from beginning to end. Their pattern analyzing tool thoroughly cleansed the data and populated the database in record time. What normally would have taken weeks to complete, took only a few hours.

    To further enhance our EMPI, NextGate implemented a customized GUI along with a web-based Downtime Registration System (DRS). The DRS can actively query the EMPI for patient information while leveraging its strong search capabilities and eliminating the use of paper tracking. We recently used this system during a major upgrade to our registration application, and we were pleased with the results.

    CHOP is a recognized leader in children’s healthcare, and the Downtime Registration System developed by NextGate helped CHOP maintain leadership and saved our organization valuable time and money.
