About Us

athenahealth delivers cloud-based services for EHR, practice management and care coordination. Our mission is to be caregivers' most trusted service, helping them do well doing the right thing.

Managing a medical practice is difficult.

We know because that's how athenahealth began. In 1997, co-founders Jonathan Bush and Todd Park ran a birthing center in California, where they found themselves inundated with paperwork, and spending the bulk of their time just trying to get paid.

When they couldn't find a solution, they developed their own. The result: The cloud-based services now offered by athenahealth.

Making health care work as it should.

Health care is plagued with inefficiencies that can jeopardize quality care. We strive to address that by becoming the nation's health information backbone, and enabling the easier flow of patient information. Our open technology platform supports further improvement by inviting disruptive innovation and encouraging partners to join in our mission. With inventive tools and services, everyone within health care can benefit.

Easing the administrative burden.

As physicians' advocates, we don't think caregivers should be distracted by anything that takes away from their connection with patients. So we combine our cloud-based software, networked knowledge and back-office services to alleviate the hassles and reduce the red tape. We focus on administrative tasks so providers can focus on patient care.
