Culture at athenahealth

Our culture

athenahealth was launched with a disruptive, entrepreneurial spirit. It’s important to us to preserve that culture, even as we grow as an organization.

  • We encourage professional curiosity and endless growth opportunities.
  • athenahealth is proud of its four Employee Resource Groups, that are focused on creating an inclusive, diverse and dynamic workplace: the athenaDiversity Council, athenaParents, athenaProud, and the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF). 
    • Through the WLF, athenahealth has recently partnered with the Lean In organization and launched Lean In Circles — small peer groups open to all employees that meet regularly to learn, support, and grow together. 
  • athenistas enjoy our creative workspaces, food trucks, lawn games, a casual dress code, discounted gym memberships, and other perks.
  • All employees are bonus eligible.

We believe in a spirit of unconditional positive regard for each other—and while we strive to become caregivers’ most trusted support system, that goes double for our colleagues.


Our beginnings

athenahealth didn’t start as a cloud-based services provider for medical practices. We actually began in 1997 as a medical practice and birthing center in California called athena women’s health and the Birthplace. Founders Jonathan Bush and Todd Park quickly recognized that they were spending an enormous amount of effort just trying to get paid for their services. When they couldn’t find a solution to their problem, they developed their own.

What emerged was the origin of the cloud-based services athenahealth is known for today. With our proven combination of cloud-based software, networked knowledge and back office services, we are focused on creating a national health information backbone that helps health care work as it should.
