- Reduced administrative burden stemming from healthcare's most burdensome tasks. In 2017, athenahealth leveraged machine learning to process 90 percent of the 120 million documents its clients received. The company will showcase how it will continue to drive automation and efficiency to documentation processing, medical coding, and authorization management, and will preview early iterations of its national calendar asset—a scheduling functionality with the goal of enabling patients and providers to schedule care appointments with the same ease as making an online dinner reservation.
- An untethered and barrier-free EHR experience that goes beyond a virtual mobile assistant. athenahealth will introduce Epocrates Connect, a new provider-facing mobile application able to connect to multiple EHR systems and facilitate new levels of documentation and care coordination.
- Enhanced access to information across disparate EHR systems, benefitting providers and patients alike. As KLAS's highest-rated EHR for deep interoperability, the athenaClinicals® EHR connects providers to approximately 75 percent of eligible Epic sites and 30 percent of eligible Cerner sites via CommonWell and Carequality. This year, athenahealth is also enabling its clients to offer health records via iPhone, empowering their patients to see a snapshot of their medical data from multiple providers in the Health app.
