NextGen, Dell team to work on hospital, ambulatory health IT

NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, a leading electronic health record vendor, has partnered with Dell to deliver health IT services and products.

Under the agreement between the two companies, Dell will market, sell and support NextGen's inpatient and ambulatory-care EHR and practice management systems. Dell also will host NextGen applications remotely, while NextGen will recommend that its clients use Dell hardware.

Dell, which added an extensive software portfolio with the acquisition of Perot Systems in 2009, already offers hospitals and physician practices EHRs, practice management systems, health information exchanges, and associated services, including consulting on IT and revenue cycle management.

Dell has also integrated some of its products and services with the EHR systems of Allscripts, one of the NextGen's chief competitors. In addition, Dell recently struck a mobile health IT deal with Meditech, a leading hospital system vendor.
