Thriving on the network: one hospital's story
"It's absolutely critical that we keep this hospital alive. You can't do it without someone like athena in your corner."Brandon Christensen, Mt. Grant General Hospital
*Source: athenahealth data. Lower cost growth is the relative difference between spending growth by athenahealth clients and the CPI. These results may not necessarily be indicative of future results, either generally or for a specific client.
**Our clients see an average 6% increase in collections and 32% decrease in days in accounts receivable, or DAR, based on a weighted average for athenahealth clients with valid pre-athenahealth benchmark data that had their 15 month anniversary with athenahealth between January 1, 2010, and October 31, 2013.
