Incerio is very proud to announce that they have completed development for a very thorough and detailed  PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) template set for the NextGen EHR environment based on NextGen’s 8.xx environment.  Its been an absolute pleasure working the the Los Angeles PACE team. They put in a lot of long hours to provide us detailed instructions and mocks up for us to base our development on.  Every week as we met with the team and we worked through the different fixes that needed to be fixed, I am very proud of my team, especially for Diana Adams and her awesome effort to meet the demands of this project.
