Athenahealth Marketplace Brings Shopping To Health Care IT

Stocks in this article: ATHN

The athenahealth Marketplace includes both Technology and Clinical Exchange partners. Technology partners are broken out by category based on function and include companies specializing in transcription, scheduling, personal health records, communications, contract management, and more. Because the exchange of patient information is vital to managing patient populations, connections to labs and vaccine registries across the U.S. will also be available within the Marketplace via Clinical Exchange partners.

All live solutions featured within the athenahealth Marketplace have been pilot-tested across care environments, as part of the athenahealth workflow, and by More Disruption Please (MDP). MDP is athenahealth's business development program aimed at launching a massive surge of disruptive innovation in health care. The MDP advantage is that qualified innovators can gain access to athenahealth's growing cloud-based network of about 40,000 providers. Through the MDP program, athenahealth will continue to introduce new services and accelerate the introduction of high-value innovation via the cloud.

"We are excited that athenahealth is giving providers' choice and making it possible to select a clinical documentation solution based on their workflows and needs," said Dana Heller, executive director, ICDS. "We hear from many doctors that their frustrations over the limitations of EHRs are making them choose to retire earlier rather than later; which may sound crazy but is true. A large part of why we are partnering with athenahealth is because they ask providers what they need to thrive. This opened the doors for us to work together and give providers more choice and flexibility in documenting care. It's a huge step forward for the industry in making HIT work for today's providers."

"Teaming up with athenahealth and making our contract management and analysis solutions available to the nearly 40,000 providers on athenahealth's network is a great opportunity," said Dan Buell, general manager of Experian Healthcare. "We are dedicated to giving providers more visibility into their business operations so they can help ensure accurate reimbursement from third-party payers and make better financial decisions. We are excited to be a part of the Marketplace, because it reduces the time it takes to implement these solutions and get providers up and running."
