by Mark Maida, Senior Associate, Healthcare Transactions

The Clipboard Routine

by Stephanie Zaremba, Director of Government and Regulatory Affairs

by Greg Carey, Technology Standards and Policy Manager

athenahealth Announces Pilot Participation in Precision Medicine Initiative

by Greg Carey, Technology Standards and Policy Manager

On February 25th athenahealth COO Ed Park joined the President of the United States and industry leaders at the White House to assess progress on the President’s Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) and announce commitments to the Sync for Science (S4S) pilot.  You may be surprised--or similarly disappointed—to learn that the link between athenahealth, President Obama, and an NBA legend has nothing to do with basketball.

Stage 3 of Meaningful Use Still Lacks Interoperability and Provider Groups Aren't Pleased

by Stephanie Zaremba, Director of Government and Regulatory Affairs

Last month, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized changes to Stage 2 of Meaningful Use for 2015-2017 and new Stage 3 requirements to take effect in 2018. This final rule was largely consistent with what CMS proposed in April, aimed at reducing the complexity of program requirements. Yet despite CMS’s attempt to simplify the Meaningful Use program in response to years of stakeholder complaints, the final rule was again met with widespread criticism, particularly from providers.

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.

Patient-Centered Exchange: Moving Toward an ATM Experience in a Health Care World

by Doran C. Robinson, Vice President of Healthcare Transactions

We all know what connectivity looks like – even when we’re not thinking about it. You experienced it the last time you withdrew money from an ATM owned by one of your bank’s competitors. Or when you made a restaurant reservation without leaving Opentable. Or when you saw departure times and prices for hundreds of flights all in one place. We experience connectivity just about every day. We also know, sadly, that we rarely experience this kind of connectivity in health care.
