"When the our practice decided to migrate from Allscripts to Nextgen in 2011, we had to search outside the box for guidance and literally for hand holding with someone who could talk our language, not just be really "good" with the conversion of our data. We are part of an Enterprise with other HUGE medical specialty practices through our IPA and Julie Chiesa filled that role almost immediately for us. We are a multi-doctor Ophthalmology practice with 3 locations and lots of staff. Julie took her time in showing and teaching ( 2 different art forms in instruction with new programs) with this beast called NextGen. She could teach the most savvy surgeon and the most novice staff member, did not matter. She held our hands through all those updates along the way and most recently with the migration to ICD10!!! Not one hiccup on October 1, 2015. Not one! We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Julie for assisting and yes teaching us along the way. Without Julie's knowledge and expertise over the years, the practice could have crumbled in a pile of unprocessable claims, leading to lost revenue. This did not happen on "Julie's Watch", not once.
Thank you Julie for being our Wizard of OZ behind the curtain of Electronic Medical Records, ICD10 and any other wrench the government tries to throw at all your clients. You're a brilliant business woman and computer wizard with NextGen in our minds eye."

"I honestly cannot say enough about Julie. She is a great resource, easy to work with, and very knowledgeable when it comes to template development. I have taken the Template Editor courses provided by NextGen, but there have been many instances where Julie has taught me things that were not covered in the NextGen courses. She is also a great person to brainstorm with, and when you just cannot figure out why something is not working correctly, she is the perfect second set of eagle eyes to help you troubleshoot. I guess you could say that Julie is my 'ace in the hole.'"

She is able to give a broad overview of how the system will suit your practice best, draw on best uses of templates from similar practices and tailor your specific medical group needs. She is pleasant and readily accessible.”

Lee Hilt, Director of Information Technology
Scarsdale Medical Group
“Julie is truly incredible. From my first complete paperless implementation to practice mergers and specialists additions to software upgrades and quality programs, she is always able and willing to contribute at a moment’s notice and wear any hat necessary. In addition to her critical experience, she is able to think out of the box to create the best solutions for the money and operates with honesty and integrity if she thinks the return on investment of a potential project is not worth it. I have consulted her from numerous organizations and I treasure our more than 10 year relationship.”

“Arthritis and Rheumatism Associates went live on NextGen EHR in September 2007. Our doctors identified a number of changes that needed to be done to improve the efficiency of our templates. Julie Chiesa has been part of our team since 2008. Not only does she have an in-depth knowledge of the product, but she also understands how physicians work. Her creative solutions to multiple problems have been invaluable. Nothing is ever impossible and if she does not have a ready answer, Julie will find it. As one of our doctors said ‘Julie knows NextGen better than NextGen.’

Doreen Mitchell, Office Manager
St. Thomas Medical Partners / West End Medical Group
Julie has been more than a consultant, but an integral member of our staff since 2001. As a practice of Spine Surgeons and Physiatrists, we had specific needs, and utilizing NextGen, Julie built our entire clinical visit flow from the ground up. She continues to help us bridge the gap today , most recently integrating our customizations with the KBM to enable us to achieve MACRA without sacrificing our workflow. Julie is extremely knowledgeable and manages her business with incredible integrity. I have recommended her on multiple occasions and will continue to do so in the future.”
Mae Caime, Executive Director
Long Island Spine Specialists
“Our group has intermittently worked with Julie throughout the years. She is always quick to respond to requests for custom development, consulting or process review; you name it she can handle it or networks to get the job done. She rapidly responds to any correspondence we’ve forwarded, pays extreme attention to detail, and is committed to quality work in her customizations. She has helped us through knowledgebase upgrades and specialty implementations. I don’t know how we would’ve gotten this far without her and can recommend her without any reservation.”
Kim Hall, Director of EHR & Strategic Planning
Medical Associates of the Lehigh Valley
“Julie has been a saving grace with my company’s transition to using NextGen as our EHR. She is reliable, knowledgeable and flexible. Her expertise and guidance has really made NextGen much more user friendly and personalized for our practice. We couldn’t have done it without her.”
