Ingenious Med Partners With Athenahealth

Ingenious Med, provider of the nation's premier patient encounter platform, recently announced a partnership with athenahealth as part of athenahealth's More Disruption Please (MDP) program. The companies will work to connect athenahealth's growing network of more than 59,000 health care providers with Ingenious Med's point-of-care charge capture, care coordination and advanced analytics capabilities so that, together, they can more efficiently impact outcomes.

"Our patient encounter platform is a highly useable, highly adopted solution," says S. Hart Williford, CEO and president of Ingenious Med. "We seek to increase the quality of care and lower costs through automation at the point-of-care. Partnering with athenahealth gives us greater opportunity to move the dial industrywide. We look forward to a long journey with athenahealth in bringing high value solutions to the market."

athenahealth is a cloud-based services company with a vision to build an information backbone to help make health care work as it should. Through the MDP program, athenahealth is accelerating high-value innovation via the cloud, providing new services to help providers thrive in the face of industry change and pressure. MDP partners with innovators, entrepreneurs, companies, investors, and individuals—those who are passionate about overthrowing established approaches in health care that simply aren't working, aren't good enough, or aren't advancing the industry. Unlike other health care startup incubators, MDP invites qualified companies like Ingenious Med to gain access to the more than 59,000 providers that are already plugged into athenahealth's cloud-based network.

"Ingenious Med's dedication to integration and interoperability makes them an ideal partner for our More Disruption Please program," says Kyle Armbrester, vice president of business development at athenahealth. "Ingenious Med's solutions are integral to our outpatient providers that also round in the inpatient setting. The integrated solution guarantees that charges are seamlessly and quickly billed through athenahealth."
