Weekly Notification of NextGen Updates, Enhancements & Fixes

Type Description

Care Guidelines 'Comments' will now appear on Office Visit documents. 

Enhancement When documenting depression screenings (i.e. PHQ-2 or PHQ-9) one of the following codes will be submitted after clicking the 'Submit Code' button on the *Finalize MG template.

To meet the requirements for a positive screening and documenting a follow-up plan, a field was added to the PHQ-9 template.(See screenshot)

  • G8510 - 
    • Screening for depression is documented as negative, a follow-up plan is NOT required
  • G8511 - 
    • Screening for depression is documented as positive, follow-up is NOT documented.
  • G8431 - 
    • Screening for depression is documented as being positive, and follow up is documented

To ensure that we do not disrupt your daily practice activity, we have developed a standard update schedule and communication plan. Scheduled enhancements will take place after normal business hours (after 5:00 pm.), with prior notification, including training tools if necessary.

In addition, we ask that you notify anyone within your practice that uses NextGen to ensure they are properly logged out of the NTT Data System in order for the completion of these updates.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns regarding these notifications and we will gladly assist. We would also like to hear from you about how to improve this process.

Once again, we appreciate your business and thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
