All I Want for Christmas are Your Big, Fat Problems…

by Jonathan Bush, President & CEO

The year is coming to an end as I report to you from my desk job here in the back rooms of athenahealth, where we take on the operational work for practices and health systems. (And if you’re not yet a client, we’d like to take on yours!) I’ve been happy to do the work, and it seems you’ve been mostly happy with it. But I’ve learned a lot putting in long, arduous hours back here and, frankly, I’m ready for more. I’m asking for a promotion.

ICD-10: Views from a Practice Manager

by Donna Masucci, RN, office manager

As a practice manager who oversees a staff of nine including three clinicians, one billing supervisor, one lab tech and one medical home care coordinator, I clearly understand how a health care regulation like ICD-10 can stir up trepidation, and lead to the obvious questions: How will this affect care delivery and my practice’s bottom line?

In speaking with our providers about ICD-10, these concerns have surfaced. While they feel ICD-10 will provide a more descriptive documentation of diagnoses, they also wonder if clearinghouses and payers will have their systems configured to accept ICD-10 and avoid improperly denying submitted claims. Dr. Peter Masucci, my husband and principal physician of our family-owned practice, is most concerned with being able to identify a proper ICD-10 diagnosis code within a manageable time frame for each patient visit.

A Pediatrician’s View: Improving Revenue and Care through Patient Communication

by Jeff A. Drasnin, MD, FAAP, pediatrics

Operating a small business in today’s economy is difficult. Small, privately owned physician practices must have their financial house in order to provide high-quality medical care. The truth is most physicians are ill-equipped to survive in a very tough business environment. We spend years training to take good care of our patients, but have no idea how to balance a budget or run a practice effectively.

New Webinar: A Care Coordination Model That Benefits Everyone

by Andrew Scutro, Senior Associate, Communications

No one—no one around here anyway—goes out for lunch anymore. It seems like as soon as phones stopped ringing a few years ago and everything went to email, a relaxing lunch with co-workers at some neighborhood spot went out the window too.

So if you’re going to choke down a turkey sandwich over your keyboard, you might as well learn something while you do it. And we can help.
