Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group Selects Athenahealth To Enhance Revenue Cycle Performance

Stocks in this article: ATHN

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group, one of the largest free-standing pediatric specialty groups in the country, announced today a partnership with 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. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group recently selected athenahealth’s cloud-based medical billing services to streamline its revenue cycle in support of the organization’s mission of treating children and preparing the next generation of pediatric care providers, researchers, and teachers.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group is made up of 500 pediatric specialists who provide services across 32 different medical and surgical subspecialties; the medical group practices at the world-renown 346-bed Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, one of the top children’s hospitals in the country, according to US News and World Report.

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group selected athenahealth’s best-in-class practice management solution, athenaCollector®, to improve revenue cycle performance in the challenging California reimbursement market. The medical group already uses health care business intelligence solutions for financial reporting from Anodyne Health Partners, Inc., which is an athenahealth company.

“Medical Groups like Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group and their partner hospitals, such as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, are vital to providing the high level of care needed by the youngest and most vulnerable patients,” said Jonathan Bush, Chairman and CEO, athenahealth. “We’re thrilled that we can help make the revenue cycle more efficient for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group, our largest client in California, so their doctors can get paid more accurately and timely for doing the right thing for their patients.”

Since athenahealth’s services operate in the cloud, the medical group will be able to leverage expert billing intelligence and a patented Billing Rules Engine that will deliver information to office staff faster and without the pain and up-front costs of other practice management systems. This allows care providers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Medical Group to focus on treating children, instead of worrying about being paid for treatment.
