NextGen Healthcare Inc., a provider of cloud-based healthcare technology solutions, announced its extended agreement with Athletico Physical Therapy (Athletico), one of the nation’s largest providers of orthopedic rehabilitation services to communities, employers, and athletes. NextGen Enterprise electronic health record (EHR) and NextGen Enterprise practice management (PM) will be used to optimize clinical and financial performance across Athletico’s newly expanded footprint.

Athletico, headquartered in Chicago suburb Oak Brook, Ill., expanded its presence in the Eastern United States with its February 2022 acquisition of Pivot Health Solutions, a large Maryland-based network of physical and occupational therapy clinics and onsite employer locations. Today, the combined organization encompasses over 9,000 employees across more than 900 locations in 24 states and the District of Columbia. It offers a range of specialized services including hand therapy, workers’ compensation, pelvic health therapy, concussion management, and athletic training. 

After an extensive search for the best electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) partner to support its significant organizational growth, Athletico chose to consolidate all acquired locations onto NextGen Enterprise electronic health record (EHR) and NextGen Enterprise practice management (PM).   

“NextGen Healthcare has been instrumental to our ongoing pursuit of operational efficiency and excellence in patient care, and we are excited to expand this relationship,” says Chris Throckmorton, president and CEO of Athletico Physical Therapy. “Our newly acquired locations have already experienced meaningful improvements in revenue and financial performance since the adoption of NextGen Healthcare’s interoperable solutions.”  

“This extension of our longtime relationship with Athletico demonstrates that our scalable solutions are powerfully equipped to suit healthcare organizations’ needs at all stages of growth,” says Sri Velamoor, chief growth and strategy officer for NextGen Healthcare. “We are honored to support Athletico’s commitment to serving communities across the country.”
