Lahey Health Selects AthenaClarity(SM) To Drive Better Care Coordination

WATERTOWN, Mass., May 1, 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 that Lahey Health has selected athenaClarity SM , a cloud-based analytics service that delivers actionable insight in both fee-for-service and risk-based payment environments. athenaClarity will be used to gain advanced insight into network-wide data across disparate information systems and in turn support Lahey Health's management of population health and changing payment models.

Having been recently named a Medicare Shared Savings ACO, Lahey Health needed to transition to a data engagement model that would enable the health system to oversee and manage all of its clinical, financial and operational data. Lahey Health selected athenaClarity because of its unique ability to harmonize claims, administrative and clinical data across multiple vendors' systems—including competitive EHRs—and develop insight from that data. That insight can then guide actions that align with revenue and care outcome goals and will help Lahey Health succeed under any reimbursement scenario, today and in the future, including traditional fee-for-service, shared savings and global-risk models.

"As a newly accepted ACO, we need a population health manager that can successfully combine data, across disparate systems and our current IT infrastructure, and give us a system-wide view. We also need to be able to continue to update the selected system with commercial payer data as we grow our network and add more providers," said Gregory Bazylewicz, M.D., president of Lahey Clinical Performance Network and ACO. "With athenaClarity, we have the real-time insight we need to better coordinate care across our network and the flexibility needed to make necessary adjustments, or add new provider groups, quickly and effectively. This helps strengthen our position as a fully integrated ACO and supports our work to deliver a high standard of patient care."
