Nextech Partners With USRetina to Further Support Retinal Practices

Strategic Partnership Aims to Help Retinal Practices Increase Efficiency, Improve Profitability and Enhance Care Quality

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) - Nextech, a leading provider of specialty-focused healthcare technology solutions for physician practices, today announced its partnership with USRetina, the nation's largest independent association of retina practices with over 550 members and more than 100 member practices. With this partnership, the organizations mutually benefit by tapping into valuable data and feedback from both USRetina members and Nextech's ophthalmology end-users to drive positive change in the industry.

"It is USRetina's mission to provide immediate value to our member practices across the country. We advocate on their behalf to provide industry partnerships, compliance programs, data aggregation, clinical trials access, inventory management solutions, and many other services and technologies," said Peter L. Sonkin, M.D., Board member and GPO Chair. "One of our largest challenges is finding technology that supports the unique needs of our subspecialty. As such, we are excited to partner with Nextech to further enhance retinal practice productivity, profitability, and most importantly, quality of patient care."

Ranked the number one ophthalmology-specific ambulatory EHR in Brown-Wilson's 2015 Black Book Rankings Survey, Nextech recently released its revamped ophthalmology-specific solution, IntelleChart PRO. The solution includes enhancements such as an updated user interface, mobile functionality and an advanced problem-driven design. With more than 50 percent of retina physicians using Nextech's IntelleChart system, USRetina association members can take advantage of the solution and are empowered to chart up to 20 percent faster and further maximize efficiency. In addition, Nextech will showcase the new cloud-based EMR at USRetina's Annual Meeting this week, taking place in Nashville on May 13-15.

"USRetina members are pioneering new methods and best practices in providing quality care for their patients, and we are excited to become a part of that," said Mike Scarbrough, CEO of Nextech. "Our partnership with USRetina is just another way that Nextech aims to help ophthalmologists streamline efficiencies, mitigate compliance risk, increase efficiency and improve financial performance, while enhancing the patient experience."
