athenaHealth EHR Overview for Health Centers

From the AthenaHealth website: More than half of medical practices believe their EHR has a negative impact on costs, efficiency or productivity1. That’s why we created an EHR that works the way you do. With athenahealth, you can take in the patient’s story at a glance and document with the natural flow of the conversation. Relevant clinical information is clearly communicated to other providers, so everyone on your care team can make the most informed decisions.
