athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based electronic health record ( EHR), practice management, and care coordination services to medical groups and health systems, today announced that Children's Hospital Central California will implement athenahealth’s integrated, cloud-based services to drive better practice management, care coordination, and patient care. Across its system of 127 providers, Children's Hospital Central California, a not-for-profit children’s hospital and the prime provider of pediatric care in California’s Central Valley, will begin using athenahealth’s Best in KLAS EHR service, athenaClinicals ®; streamlined medical billing and practice management service, athenaCollector ®; and patient communication service, athenaCommunicator ®.
“As a growing hospital that last year alone exceeded 130,000 ambulatory visits, it’s critical that our operational and clinical workflows help drive high-quality, well-coordinated care across a range of settings,” said Dave Hodge, Jr., Executive Director of Ambulatory Care at Children's Hospital Central California. “athenahealth’s cloud-based model introduces a new level of visibility into our own performance and allows us to learn from the processes and execution of some 40,000 healthcare providers across the athenahealth network. This partnership supports our initiative to create high-value efficiencies across the care continuum to benefit our provider base and patient population.”
Jonathan Bush, chairman and CEO of athenahealth added, “Children's Hospital Central California is the jewel of pediatric care in the Valley, treating an underserved, ever-growing pediatric population in a shifting health care landscape, and we are proud to be their chosen HIT partner. The flexibility of our cloud-based services will provide enhanced patient connectivity to physicians across their extensive network and concurrently improve practice management efficiency, which at the end of the day will bring a higher quality of care to a region that is dependent on the success of this forward-thinking hospital.”
