Helping community hospitals thrive
The current state of health care presents particular challenges to rural, critical access and community hospitals. You need to deliver the highest quality care to local patients but you have less capital, slimmer margins and resources stretched thin. athenahealth directly addresses these issues by helping community hospitals stay independent and flourish.
Proven services, addressing needs across the care continuum
Today’s clinical and financial challenges are far too complex to rely solely on software. Our proven approach includes our award-winning, network-enabled services, continuously updated knowledge to keep you on top of change, and back-office work by our expert teams acting as an extension of your business.
As part of our services, we immediately relieve your overburdened resources by:
- Taking on administrative work

- Conducting patient outreach
Because we offer inpatient, outpatient and ambulatory services, you get full real-time visibility across your operations, without managing tools from multiple vendors.

Our inpatient services are designed specifically for the needs of community, rural and critical access hospitals, and have resulted in a 100% Meaningful Use attestation rate on our inpatient EHR.
