Ed Park

In 1997, I got a phone call to help a fledgling birthing clinic crack the code on making healthcare work the way it should. It was meant to be a summer a gig – a favor even – that turned into nearly two amazing decades.

What Does Interoperability Have To Do With Letting Doctors Be Doctors?

by Ed Park, COO

A long time ago, a doctor leaned over to me and said earnestly, “Every patient is a story. When my colleagues refer a patient to me, I care mostly about how the story begins and ends – what’s wrong with the patient and what’s your assessment?”

That message has resonated in my head for the last decade and I’ve watched in horror as an entire of generation of EHRs have made an incomprehensible mess of the patient story. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I watch this video about two doctors trying to discuss a patient case and needing the hospital cafeteria worker to be the intermediary between them.

Behind the Scenes: Getting Clients Live and Keeping Them Healthy

by Ed Park, COO

Visitors to athenahealth headquarters during the second half of 2013 probably noticed an ambitious construction project spanning the entire first floor of our 311 Arsenal Street building—the same space where wartime artillery was once manufactured as far back as the Civil War. Facilities teams were developing our five new client “nerve centers,” interconnected work areas dedicated to helping our clients go live on athenahealth and stay successful in the months and years to come.
