Athenahealth And MedOasis To Provide Comprehensive, High-Value Anesthesia Billing Solution For Hospital Departments And Independent Practices

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, together with MedOasis, it will provide an anesthesia-specific billing solution that combines athenahealth’s best-in-class claims processing capabilities with MedOasis’ anesthesia coding, charge-entry, contract management, and compliance knowledge and capabilities.

By combining the extensive anesthesia-specific coding, compliance, and insurance follow-up knowledge provided by MedOasis with athenaCollector®, athenahealth’s cloud-based practice management and medical billing offering, the market will gain access to a turnkey anesthesia billing solution complete with payor-specific rules that maximize first-pass claims adjudication for accelerated cash flow. This solution also addresses the payor-specific modifier complexities of anesthesia practices that employ CRNAS and share the same tax ID.

Jonathan Bush, CEO and chairman of athenahealth, said “We are constantly identifying new opportunities to grow our claims processing capabilities and to expand our ability to get physicians paid more and faster without having to do the heavy lifting. Through our work with MedOasis, we’re extending our footprint within anesthesia, a critical area in health care where athenahealth’s cloud-based services can help to dramatically offload billing and coding processes, so physicians can focus on patient care.”

“With athenahealth, we’re positioned better than ever to help anesthesia practices thrive, despite administrative complexities and industry pressures,” said Ken Condra, president and CEO of MedOasis. “We know anesthesia coding inside and out, as well as how to work effectively with insurance companies, recognize underpayments when they appear, and go the extra step to ensure that physicians earn what they’re owed for providing care. Our work with athenahealth is a natural extension of our expertise and the value we deliver to our customers.”
