Athenahealth Guarantees Stimulus Payments

athenahealth, Inc, a provider of Internet-based business services to physician practices, announced it has launched a program guaranteeing that physicians who use its EHR service, athenaClinicals, will receive a HITECH Act bonus payment under the 2011 program year.

The company's new Clinical Intelligence Team will support athenahealth's Federal Stimulus Bonus Payment Guarantee Program, working to deliver the maximum allowable stimulus benefit to physicians by ensuring that both athenaCollector and athenaClinicals services are continuously updated and compliant with all HITECH Act reporting requirements.

athenahealth expects to incur a related expense when physicians sign up under the guarantee program. This expense would be reversed when physicians receive their bonus payments.
