Our award-winning Electronic Health Records (EHR) service gives providers greater control, so they can focus on what they do best.
The leader in health care interoperability
Open, low-cost health care information exchange
The ability to exchange information smoothly, with minimal technological and cost barriers, is key for coordinating care and achieving clinical integration. But too often, vendors favor large "closed" systems that obstruct open exchange—and charge for interfaces.
The power of the athenahealth network
With athenahealth, you get immediate access to the single most connected platform in the nation, without excessive cost. By taking advantage of our cloud-based platform, we move health care information exchange far beyond inefficient point-to-point connections, enabling you to quickly align providers across your network.
We take on health care information exchange on a massive scale: we build all the connections (136,000+ interfaces, 2,000+ added a month), monitor and maintain the network, and process every transaction. To assure you receive the broadest possible range of health care transactions, we connect you to:
- All locally installed “noncloud” software, regardless of platform
- Interoperability services such as Direct HISP, Surescripts, CommonWell, and Merge i-Connect—all pre-and immediately available
- National supply-chain partners like labs, imaging centers and public health registries, at no charge
- Innovative partner services that integrate with the athenahealth workflow, all available via our online marketplace
If providers in your health system are using other EHRs, we make those connections too. As one of the founding members of the CommonWell Health Alliance, we’ve come together with other vendors—including Allscripts, McKesson, and Cerner—to make sure differences in technology never slow the health care information exchange.
