Connectivity Resources and Tools

athenahealth connects providers to each other, their patients, and essential data. Interfaces allow different computer systems to communicate so clients can safely share information outside their network.

Enhancing outcomes and financials

athenahealth drives efficiency and improves workflows for our clients, the organizations they work with, and the developers who create apps and interfaces to support them. We accomplish this through a variety of innovative cloud-based services that facilitate electronic health records, care coordination, patient engagement, clinical decision support, population management, and practice management.

  • Client

    Take advantage of our interfaces that allow athenahealth clients, clinics and hospitals to integrate seamlessly.

  • Developer

    Developers have an opportunity to create interfaces that leverage the largest network in health care.

  • API

    Develop Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that are easily read by other computers and the humans who program them

  • MDP

    The More Disruption Please (MDP) Network brings together entrepreneurs, investors, clinicians and industry experts to create innovative solutions that will fix healthcare.

Two steps to choosing an interface

First, identify the type of:

• Organization with which you want to exchange information

• Information you want to exchange

Then, review the pre-packaged interfaces for commonly used applications that athenahealth has developed. Or you may use the developer tools and resources provided on this site to customize an interface or network endpoint.

Interfaces support efficient workflows

Healthcare organizations gather patient information from a variety of sources: EMRs, labs, imaging, referring physicians, etc. When athenahealth clients want to exchange information with an external source (laboratory information system, clinics, hospitals, public health organizations, 3rd party apps, etc.) through athenaNet, they require an interface -- software allows them to safely share information across operations. Because interfaces send information electronically (rather than by fax or paper files), it’s faster and easier for everyone involved to:

• Exchange data in real time

• Decrease the amount of paper documents

• Reduce administrative work

• Drive efficiency thought out the process
