AthenaClinicals(R) Receives 2014 ONC HIT Certification

WATERTOWN, Mass., June 25, 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 athenaClinicals® (13.6), its cloud-based EHR service, is compliant with the ONC 2014 Edition Standards & Certification Criteria and was certified as a Complete EHR on June 21 st, 2013 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®), an ONC-ACB, in accordance with the applicable eligible provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The ONC 2014 Edition criteria support both Stage 1 and 2 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify eligible providers and hospitals for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

Jonathan Bush, CEO and Chairman of athenahealth, said: "Being certified is huge for us because every single provider using athenaClinicals is now on a 2014-certified Complete EHR. Since we're a cloud-based service, all of our providers are on the same instance of software and don't have to worry about upgrading to a new version to be ready for 2014. Earlier this year we announced that 96 percent of participating providers on athenaClinicals successfully attested to Meaningful Use Stage 1 in Year 1; this bucks industry average. Our clients are winning because they're focused on care delivery, while we take ownership of making sure their EHR platform is what they need it to be."

The ONC HIT Certification Program certifies that Complete EHRs meet all of the 2014 Edition criteria and EHR Modules meet one or more—but not all—of the criteria approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for either eligible provider or hospital technology.

"CCHIT congratulates companies successfully achieving EHR technology certification," said Alisa Ray, executive director, CCHIT. "These companies are now able to make their products available to providers wishing to adopt health IT to demonstrate meaningful use and earn Stage 1 or Stage 2 incentives."
