Nextech Dermatology EHR’s DataDerm Gold Recognition Benefits Practices Blog Feature

What happens when DataDerm™ — dermatology’s largest clinical registry — recognizes a dermatology EHR at the Gold level?

Pardon our humble brag, but only we would know. Why?

Because Nextech is the only dermatology electronic health record (EHR) to earn Gold level recognition.

Why does that matter for practices? That’s exactly what this blog will discuss.

What Is DataDerm?

Developed by the American Academy of Dermatology, the DataDerm platform collects, analyzes, and benchmarks clinical data from dermatology practices.
The main goal of the platform, or registry, is to improve the quality of care for dermatology patients by using real-world data from EHRs

Using this EHR data, DataDerm empowers dermatologists to make more informed decisions, enhance patient care, and contribute to the advancement of dermatology as a whole.

Fundamentally, DataDerm is a powerful tool that allows practices to harness the potential of data-driven healthcare, improving outcomes for patients while creating a network of knowledge-sharing within the dermatology community.

What is DataDermGold Recognition?

To sum up, DataDerm is the best of the best. And a nod of approval at the Gold level is the highest accolade a dermatology EHR can achieve.

For Nextech, achieving Gold level status means we have demonstrated our commitment to providing reliable and complete data, making our dermatology EHR a prime choice for practices looking to optimize patient care and outcomes.

How Nextech Achieved Gold-Level Status

Achieving Gold level status from DataDermis no easy feat, but it's worth the effort. Why?

Because it’s more than just a shiny badge. It's a reflection of a dermatology practice's dedication to harnessing the power of data for better patient outcomes.  

That’s exactly what we at Nextech want to help practices do.

Here are a few actions we prioritized to achieve — and maintain — our Gold status:

  • Complete and accurate data integration with DataDerm
  • Robust, consistent data submission
  • Prioritization of data completeness, timeliness of submission, and adherence to specific data elements
  • Quality reporting
  • Continuous improvement
  • Data accuracy and reliability
  • Full compliance with DataDerm guidelines
