Physician-owned and led, Steward Medical Group (SMG) prides itself on incorporating technology that supports practice optimization and allows its physicians to focus on their patients.

“I think connectedness is so important to improving healthcare, so that patients feel comfortable to ask the questions that they need. I think it’s also important for the physician to have joy in their practice. I don’t want to push papers and deal with data and numbers. I want to connect with patients. And athena really allows me that chance.” – Dr. Stephany Godfrey, Nashoba Valley Medicine, Groton, Massachusetts
