Leading healthcare organizations select NextGate to empower care teams with accurate, relevant and actionable information

Pasadena, Calif., July 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)— NextGate, the leading healthcare technology company for patient and physician identification that supports care team collaboration, today announced continued growth during the second quarter of 2015 with the addition of several new healthcare enterprise organizations, integrated delivery networks and health information exchanges. As one of the largest providers of healthcare identity management technology, NextGate uses its expertise in patient identification to connect the healthcare ecosystem by accurately identifying and linking patient and provider data.

NextGate has experienced significant customer growth during the first half of the year, and much of that growth was during the second quarter. NextGate accelerated its momentum in the healthcare market as organizations realize that cross-platform information sharing requires a single, consistent, enterprise identifier for patients and providers. NextGate attributes its recent growth to the role its robust MatchMetrix interoperability suite plays in care team collaboration, specifically its #1 KLAS ranked Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) and Provider Registry. These products enable NextGate’s customers to automate duplicate record clean up, eliminate duplicate registrations and provide faster, more accurate patient lookup while promoting a consistent overall patient experience. Some new customers who have implemented EMPI include:

Connecticut Department of Social Services (CT DSS), which provides a myriad of state and federal programs, serving more than 950,000 individuals in 600,000 households

Hallmark Health System, the premier, charitable provider of vital health services to Boston’s northern communities serving a patient population of 400,000

Novarad, specializing in radiology software and streamlined workflow solutions with over 15 diagnostics products and claim over 850 customers

The company is also celebrating its 10 year anniversary in 2015, and this milestone marks a decade of NextGate’s collaboration, commitment and innovation in the healthcare industry.

“For 10 years NextGate has helped hundreds of organizations synthesize disparate data into consistent, trusted information,” said Andy Aroditis, NextGate CEOand co-founder. “We are thrilled to be a part of a technology foundation that enables meaningful collaboration among care providers, departments, and organizations.
