Athenahealth Marketplace Brings Shopping To Health Care IT

WATERTOWN, Mass., April 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- athenahealth, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based services for electronic health record ( EHR), practice management and care coordination, today announced the launch of athenahealth Marketplace, a one-stop shop for health care provider organizations and physician practices to browse and select health care IT (HIT) solutions that augment and complement athenahealth's suite of cloud-based services.

Available today, as part of athenahealth Marketplace, are a variety of workflow efficiency and care coordination solutions including technologies from leading HIT vendors Experian Healthcare, InHealth Clinical Documentation Solutions (ICDS), NHXS, iTriage, and Entrada.

At a time when providers are facing compounding pressure to deliver patient care in line with mounting government regulation, changing payment models, decreased budgets, and limited staff, it is increasingly important to arm them with IT that is easily accessible and supports workflows that do not distract from care delivery.

"Caregivers are faced with more burdens today than ever before, and it can be difficult to thrive. Too often, providers are spending time on the wrong types of work; this causes inefficiencies and negatively impacts quality and cost," said Jonathan Bush, CEO and chairman, athenahealth. "Our marketplace is all about bringing the best HIT solutions to the forefront. Similar to what Amazon.com is for consumers, our platform, with the immense support of our Marketplace partners, will serve as a one-stop 'shop' for high-value HIT solutions."

Added Kyle Armbrester, director, Business Development: "athenahealth Marketplace is central to our strategy to create an open, cloud-based platform that – with the help of APIs, streamlined connectivity, and a growing list of best-of-breed applications – can solve the challenges facing health care today. What's more, we're holding our partners to a higher calling by making sure they deliver real value to our clients. We're tracking our partners' effect by measuring changes in revenue, cycle time, impact on patient outcomes, as well as other key metrics that we believe are critical to drive the necessary improvements that health care desperately needs."
