NextGen Healthcare and Milliman enter into agreement for analytics and risk scoring services
NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a provider of healthcare information systems, services and connectivity solutions, announced it has entered into an agreement with Milliman, a global consulting and actuarial firm, to license risk analysis and predictive modeling tools for population health and collaborative care management.
Under the agreement, Milliman will provide patient risk scoring, stratification and analysis of Medicare patients and facilitate the exchange of patient data among those providers utilizing NextGen Care, the Company’s new Population Health Solution. NextGen Care works within the electronic health record (EHR) workflow to aid the care management process. Likewise, the Milliman analytics are surfaced within the clinical workflow to facilitate individual patient care by the provider and care teams, as well as in support of automated, proactive patient outreach to identify care opportunities for individual and groups of patients alike. The Milliman analysis provides a score or a percentile ranking of where patients rank within the patient population to help identify and proactively manage those patients most likely to be sick and those with the highest treatment costs.
