“The bigger story is the fact that we’re not selling a point solution to our clients or a set of them. We are selling one integrated ambulatory platform and the clients are starting to see that come to life,” he said.

NextGen reiterated full-year revenue in the range of $525 million to $535 million, “but with a bias towards the lower end.” It also raised adjusted profit guidance to 72 cents to 76 cents from 70 cents to 74 cents.

Shares of the Irvine-based healthcare information systems company rose less than 1% to $18.46 for a $1.2 billion market cap. The shares have climbed about 25% in the past month.
