athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based practice management, electronic health record (EHR), and care coordination services to medical groups, announced today that Medford Medical Clinic, a provider of diversified medical services, will implement athenahealth’s services to drive quality across practice management, patient communications, and patient care.
Medford Medical Clinic will begin using a complement of athenahealth’s integrated, cloud-based services: Best in KLAS* EHR service, athenaClinicals®; streamlined medical billing and practice management service, athenaCollector®; and patient communications service, athenaCommunicator®, which enables greater patient interaction outside of the exam room. Additionally, Medford Medical Clinic will be utilizing business intelligence services from Anodyne Health Partners, Inc., a company athenahealth acquired in 2009.
“We expect athenahealth’s services to enable us to better communicate with our patients outside the exam room,” said Dr. Paul Matz, one of seven partners of Medford Medical Clinic. “Our availability to our patients will now be around-the-clock, when it’s most convenient for them, because we’ll have secure means for corresponding.”
Jonathan Bush, athenahealth Chairman and CEO, noted, “The leadership team at Medford Medical Clinic should be commended for showing the forward thinking necessary to help drive innovation across their system. They are the type of organization that excites us, particularly their willingness to embrace cloud-based solutions as an example of what can be accomplished by independent practices intent on improving outcomes and access while reducing costs. With their leadership, Southern Oregon can become a national showcase for how health care can and should work—and we look forward to helping them make that happen.”
