St. Boniface Haiti Foundation Honored With Athenahealth 2013 Vision Award

WATERTOWN, Mass., April 29, 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 St. Boniface Haiti Foundation as its 2013 Vision Award winner. The Vision Award, which was established by athenahealth as part of its annual User Conference, recognizes individuals and organizations that embody and extend the company's goal to make health care work as it should. Past winners include Dr. Atul Gawande and Dr. Abraham Verghese.

athenahealth honored the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation for its 30-year effort to improve the lives of Haiti's underserved by providing high-quality and affordable health care and education in the rural region of Fond des Blancs. In particular, the Vision Award honors St. Boniface for its ground-breaking Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation and Community Reintegration Program—the first of its kind in Haiti—which provides long-term care for victims of the 2010 earthquake. As part of the award, athenahealth is partnering with the Foundation to implement cloud-based electronic health records in rural Haiti; the partnership and EHR implementation will enable robust documentation of the progress and learning from the ground-breaking Spinal Cord Injury Program.

The St. Boniface Haiti Foundation is a health care and educational non-profit with a mission to create a model of successful, sustainable development in rural Haiti with the help of local leadership and workers. For the past three decades, the organization's primary focus has been to provide health care to thousands of local patients, despite the lack of infrastructure and shortage of trained clinicians.

After the 2010 earthquake, St. Boniface was the only Haitian-based health care organization that volunteered to take on the care of patients suffering spinal cord injuries when international relief organizations began to leave. Although it lacked experience in providing for such long-term care, the foundation's commitment to helping those in great need motivated the foundation to create its Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation and Community Reintegration Program. Today, the USAID-funded project has grown to become internationally recognized for transforming disability and spinal cord injury treatment in the developing world.
