Learn how to remain independent and succeed as a Community, Rural and Critical Access Hospital in today's evolving healthcare landscape.

Thrive with Cloud-Based Services for Community Hospitals

All hospitals face challenges in the current health care environment, but community hospitals are in the most precarious position. They can’t – and wouldn’t want to – sacrifice quality of care, because their communities depend on them, but their dilemma is how to deliver quality care with fewer resources, less capital, and smaller margins than larger hospitals and health care systems.

athenahealth believes that, with the right tools and services, your hospital can not only survive and remain independent; it can flourish. Software alone can’t do it, but cloud-based services for community hospitals, rural hospitals, and critical access hospitals can.

What should cloud-based services for community hospitals, rural hospitals, and critical access hospitals be able to do for your hospital? They should:

  • Free up your staff by relieving them of administrative work
  • Manage clinical paperwork and get it where it needs to go
  • Continually update your billing rules to ensure prompt, accurate payment
  • Enable you to easily reach out to patients – for their physical health and the financial health of your hospital
  • Provide experts who act as an extension of your business 

But software is important, too. Hospital technology must be up-to-date and hospital information systems must deliver the right information at the right time. Unfortunately, this can demand an investment in hospital IT that many small hospitals can’t afford. athenahealth solves this dilemma with cloud-based inpatient, outpatient and ambulatory EHR, revenue cycle and population health management systems that:
  • Live on one integrated platform
  • Don’t require a debilitating investment up front for software and servers
  • Have no installation, maintenance, upgrade, or add-on fees

Our payment model ensures that our interests are aligned with yours – that we succeed only if you succeed.
