|athenahealth Announces First Cloud-Based Clinical Integration and Patient Access Service for Hospitals and Health Systems|
WATERTOWN, Mass., Feb. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- athenahealth, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based services for electronic health record (EHR), practice management, and care coordination, today announced a new service for hospitals and health systems, athenaCoordinator® Enterprise. Leveraging a cloud platform architecture, athenaCoordinator Enterprise is a first-of-its-kind clinical integration and patient access service designed to help hospitals and health systems connect and track care seamlessly across settings, networks, and disparate health information technology (HIT) systems.
Through a combination of clinical integration and patient access services, athenaCoordinator Enterprise delivers a full suite of capabilities not found as part of any of today's inpatient EHR systems. athenaCoordinator Enterprise can be overlaid across multiple HIT systems to enable providers to share clinical briefings with providers using different EHRs, an essential capability since a significant amount of care is referred by out-of-network providers. Unlike conventional approaches, athenaCoordinator Enterprise does not require upfront capital investment, the need to purchase extra software or add-on modules, or, most importantly, the need to displace current HIT systems.
"With athenaCoordinator Enterprise, we're disrupting the way things have been done across hospitals and health systems to make them fundamentally better, and to take on some of the greatest challenges and complex work that hospitals and health systems face today," said Todd Rothenhaus, M.D., chief medical officer, athenahealth. "We're introducing a completely new and robust offering that combines the muscle of cloud-based software, crowd-sourced knowledge from more than 50,000 providers across the U.S., and a team of service experts that together can make care coordination work at a level no integrated health care network has achieved."
athenaCoordinator Enterprise combines the power of cloud-based software, knowledge, and services to offer hospitals and health systems a fully supported, end-to-end way to activate patients, coordinate care, and analyze the clinical and financial impact of that care:
