Proven success with quality programs

athenahealth clients don't have to learn new regulations or follow program changes–because we do it for them.

Up to 4% of your payment is at risk with MIPS
CMS will use the combined categories score to deliver a positive payment adjustment—or up to 4% downward adjustment—on Medicare Part B payments, to the clinician based on how that score compares to the national benchmark score.

athenahealth's MIPS Guarantee
We guarantee that new practices using athenahealth's services will avoid any MIPS payment penalties based on 2017 reporting. If we're unsuccessful, we'll credit the practice the amount of the penalty.

We are committed to our clients' success
The athenahealth MIPS Guarantee is our way of standing by providers and their practices. Our network is built to future-proof your practice against industry changes, helping you deliver quality care and minimize risk by taking on the burden of work required—no matter what comes.

MIPS and MACRA, made simple

How do we do it?

athenahealth helps you stay focused on patient care with a proven combination of:
  • A nationwide network of 99,000 providers that connects the continuum of care, bringing provider groups large and small the scale and agility they need to stay independent.

    We serve as an extension of your internal operations, wicking away low-value work and driving performance. We track claims, manage your providers’ paperwork, performance coach and more.
