Athenahealth’s Second Annual ‘More Disruption Please’ Conference Convenes CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Physicians, Academics, And Software Engineers

athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health record ( EHR), and care coordination services to medical groups, today provided highlights from their second annual More Disruption Please (MDP) Conference. The event is an integral part of athenahealth’s broader More Disruption Please program, the aim of which is to accelerate disruptive innovation in health care by fostering a community of forward-thinking “disruptors.”

Over the course of the two-day event at the Point Lookout Resort in Northport, Maine, more than 100 ‘disruptors’— CEOs of health care IT (HIT) companies, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, academics, and software engineers—gathered to discuss ways to drive the industry towards more openness, innovation, and collaboration. Keynotes were delivered by Charlie Baker, Entrepreneur in Residence at General Catalyst Partners, former Republican nominee for Massachusetts Governor, and former CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and Marty Anderson, Senior Lecturer in Management at Babson College.

From the group of 55 attending CEOs, 30 were invited to participate in an MDP “elevator pitch” contest in which each gave a two-minute explanation of why their company matters in health care. Semi-finalists Entrada, iTriage, Epion, Wellframe, and Healthfinch were selected by the entire MDP group and then given 10 minutes to deliver their sales pitch to more than 2,000 athenahealth clients (mainly physicians) via a live webinar. iTriage was declared the winner and will have the opportunity to pilot and then scale their services to athenahealth’s base of over 35,000 providers through athenaNet ®, athenahealth’s cloud-based network.

Dr. Pete Hudson, CEO and Founder of iTriage, said, “The MDP program is an incubator of innovative health care IT companies, giving us the forum to connect with each other and spark the provocative conversations we need in order to upend the status quo in health care. It’s a promising program aimed at shocking the system and, importantly, giving disruptors in various growth stages the opportunity to get in front of athenahealth’s significant provider base.”
