To partner with and support providers with the clinical, financial, and organizational IT infrastructure and services needed for success in value-based care.
The success and growth of QSI has been built upon 40 years of pioneering in health information technology (HIT). With that strong foundation and its continual focus on innovation and quality, the Company is uniquely positioned to meet and exceed the demands of healthcare IT in the future.
“A Paradigm Shift” best describes the significant transformation the Health Information Technology (HIT) industry has been undergoing as part of federal health reform efforts that have in large part been driven by the HITECH Act of 2009, The Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, and more recently, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). As a result, about 17% of the economy – healthcare – has shifted from paper to automation and new value-based payment models have emerged. And innovative HIT solutions have become the catalyst for propelling healthcare into this new outcomes-based era. QSI is helping its clients navigate this new reform and regulatory environment, which continues to shape the future of our nation’s healthcare delivery system.
The HITECH Act promotes both the adoption of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) and the electronic exchange of health information for every individual in the U.S. ACA focuses on insurance coverage changes and expansion. MACRA focuses on payment reform, replacing Medicare’s traditional fee-for-service system with new value-based payment systems. EHR and other HIT technologies have become the drivers for these new rules and requirements – from the use of technology to improve outcomes, to the transition to the International Classification of Disease 10th revision (ICD-10), to the ability to share data across disparate systems and manage revenue streams, there are many elements to operating successfully in today’s changing healthcare environment.
What started 40 years ago with our vision to automate healthcare has morphed into something bigger than anyone could have imagined – then or now.
As healthcare continues to change exponentially, our focus is to ensure our clients can adapt to and thrive. We will continually work to help our clients succeed in a dynamic environment that includes new reimbursement models, more patient-centric care, and changing regulatory requirements. As patients get more involved in their care, providers must integrate this involvement into their delivery systems. And with the emergence of value-based reimbursement, providers will drive healthcare transformation even more.
QSI/NextGen clients are leaders in healthcare transformation and we will be there to help them set performance and outcomes benchmarks that others will seek to mirror. We will be there to help them deliver accountable, coordinated care, manage population health, and make evidence-based clinical decisions. We’ll be there to let physicians and dentists focus more on practicing medicine and less on IT and back-office operations– all with a goal of improving the health of our patients and delivering lower cost and higher quality care.
