Contract Utility


Contract Utility

The Contract Utility (CU) is a software tool developed by NextGen to assist clients in updating contracts within a NextGen Healthcare database. Contracts may be imported, exported, and/or globally updated.

The Contract Utility was formerly part of the Mass Update Utility (MUU) and is available to all NextGen clients at no-charge. This application requires the .NET 4.0 full version (not client profile) to work correctly

To download and install the latest version on your machine, first uninstall any previous version of the Contract Utility and then click the INSTALL link below.
