Updates in OCHIN’s NextGen EHR for Planned Parenthood Affiliates

By Susanne Mauney, Director of NextGen Operations

On December 14, 2018, OCHIN released the 10.2 Custom EHR frameworks for Planned Parenthood affiliates.  This release includes updates to align with the optional changes in the 2018 PPFA Medical Standards and Guidelines, as well as new functionality to support documentation for patients seeking gender affirming hormone therapy.   

In the 10.2 release, we have also introduced new lab set functionality so that affiliates may configure common groups of labs for quick, easy ordering on our lab master template. Affiliates will also find that we have added new configurability to our sexual history template.  

Building on changes we created in our 10.1 release for the sexual history template, we have incorporated feedback from various affiliates in our 10.2 release and worked to accommodate different needs in sexual risk screening across various regions served by Planned Parenthood.

In December, NextGen Healthcare also released their latest updates in their 2018 Fall release.  OCHIN will be leveraging NextGen Healthcare’s latest platform in our custom EHR framework development for Planned Parenthood affiliates in 2019! 

If you have any questions about any of the current or upcoming updates in OCHIN’s NextGen EHR, please contact Susanne Mauney (mauneys@ochin.org).
