Succeed in starting a medical practice

athenahealth is uniquely positioned to help providers avoid the pains associated with starting a medical practice. Our services help you thrive, and keep you ahead of change.

Starting a medical practice with proven services

Starting an independent medical practice often requires more business acumen than clinical know-how. Time spent with patients can feel rushed, and delivering care is filled with distractions. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

athenahealth started as an independent birthing center, and ran into typical pitfalls that challenged our abilities to keep the doors open. From that experience, we’ve become a results-driven health IT industry leader, and we know exactly how to help those starting a medical practice. 

Low upfront costs, no long-term contracts

With athenahealth, you get a single, integrated suite of services for practice management, EHR and care coordination. All from a single partner with a direct investment in your practice’s well-being. Because we only bill a small percentage of collections, we align our incentives with yours, giving us a stake in helping you thrive clinically and financially. There are no software or installation charges, no maintenance fees, and never a need for add-on modules. We begin with low up-front costs, an ideal situation for any provider or small group starting a medical practice.

Taking on your busywork so providers can focus on care

When you partner with us, our expert back-office teams work as an extension of your practice to take time-consuming tasks away from your staff. They track claims, manage your clinical paperwork, answer calls after hours and more, all freeing you up to focus on care.

Proven to get you paid more, faster:

  • 6% increase in practice collections, 32% reduction in days in accounts receivable1
  • 98.2% of our participating providers attested to Stage 2 Meaningful Use in 2014
  • 69% of providers called our EHR ready out of the gate6
We guarantee our practices thrive through change

Providers today are faced with government mandates and incentive programs, new codes and a changing landscape that is difficult to navigate alone. We alleviate the burdens associated with Meaningful Use, ICD-10, PQRS and more, keeping all of our providers ahead of change, guaranteed. 

“I opened up Levine Heart and Wellness in May of 2013, and the experience has been nothing short of extraordinary… athenahealth has been able to help me achieve the practice setting that I desired because it has removed the hassles from my daily workflow so that I can focus on taking care of my patients.”
