Strong practice management for your bottom line
Efficient practice management that gets you paid more
By working at massive scale for our clients, athenahealth drives results with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. It’s part of our proven approach to practice management, partnering with you to optimize your performance.
Keeping claims clean—and getting providers paid
We keep you ahead of payer changes with our patented Billing Rules Engine, a database of more than 40 million payer rules. Here’s how it works: The Rules Engine automatically alerts you to any issue with a claim, so you can address it before the claim is submitted. You’re more likely to submit clean claims and collect payment faster.
Our Payer Intelligence team diligently keeps the Rules Engine up-to-date, researching payer information and tracking claims from our network of more than 55,000 providers. If a claim is denied, we help fix it and add a new rule, so that denial never occurs again for an athenahealth provider.
Solving remittance processing
The remittance process shouldn’t take days and days. Our unique partnership with U.S. Bank® decreases time, boosts efficiency, and has significant advantages over other remittance processors. Your practice receives a secure, high-quality lockbox service that seamlessly connects to our back-office service teams, all at no additional charge.
Partnering with you to drive results
Getting providers paid isn’t just part of our mission, it’s central to our business. Rather than charge a substantial monthly or software fee, we directly invest in your success by charging a small percentage of collections. That’s why we take on your most tedious practice management work, provide free coaching, and keep you on top of industry change.
