including how to determine if you’re ACO-ready.

Succeeding as an Accountable Care Organization

Thriving within an accountable care organization requires a health IT partner that can get the right information to providers, deliver insight to health system leaders, and connect care across any network. Through our nimble, cloud-based services, athenahealth fulfills these needs to drive quality and revenue for accountable care organizations.

Delivering positive results, clinically and financially

Our EHR—recognized as #1 in usability by KLAS6—provides an intuitive encounter for providers, with relevant clinical quality guidelines surfaced at the right moment of care.

athenahealth analytics offer insight into each referral decision, so you can clearly understand the cost of care delivered, and adjust as necessary to meet your benchmarks—a necessity with any risk-based reimbursement model.

And our population health service reaches out to engage patients, makes it easy to schedule them into your system, and provides seamless transitions in care—wherever providers and patients are.

Even if you’re not part of an accountable care organization, our cloud-based services help minimize duplicate work, track referral patterns, maintain provider and staff efficiencies, and close the loop on care. All essential for driving positive outcomes.

Connecting care across your health system and beyond

We believe that the exchange of health care information should never be hindered by cost or differences in technology. That’s why we build and maintain the single, most connected network of its kind, with more than 136,000 interfaces and 46,000 exchange partners. We’re connecting our nationwide network of providers to labs, hospitals, state registries and other providers—and most connections are free.

Ensuring the smooth, easy exchange of information is just part of our commitment to help drive positive results for health systems. We help you succeed as an accountable care organization, or take on other value-based payment models, with the insight and services to improve care and lower costs.
