Beyond the traditional EMR
We take on your busy work
Our back-office teams take work on for you so you can stay focused on providing great patient care. We take over your fax machine, receiving and sorting all incoming faxes for you. All incoming clinical information is scanned by our service teams, and then routed to the right person at your practice — our teams process more than 2 million documents per month, giving us the scale, know-how and ability to help you.
Taking on your clinical documentation work
Because we work at scale, we pull work out of the practice workflow wherever we can execute a particular task more efficiently than the practice. From scanning clinical documents to returning results that “close the loop” on orders, athenahealth provides a level of service that doesn’t exist in most EMRs.
Managing and updating quality measures for you
Conventional EMRs often require additional modules for quality programs like Meaningful Use. Not with athenahealth. Powered by our Quality Management EngineSM, our cloud-based EMR is continuously updated to accommodate the most current quality measures, surfacing them at the right point in the encounter where each measure can be met with minimal effort. Our platform is nimble and flexible, and we’re always adapting to stay on top of industry change, removing complexities from government incentive programs and eliminating the cost of frequent upgrades. In addition to keeping the QME working, our Clinical Intelligence team takes on these tasks for your practice:
- Identifying quality management programs that are best for your practice
- Handling most enrollment
- Enabling population health campaigns
- Generating reports and submitting data electronically on your behalf
Maintaining the most connected network of its kind
Our experts make sure you have all the clinical connections you need to seamlessly exchange patient data, featuring more than 177,000 clinical connections with labs, hospitals, imaging centers and other practices, even if they’re on a different EMR. We don’t believe in technical or cost barriers to interoperability, so most of your connections are free and already available on our cloud-based network.
