Partnership with athenahealth
Thanks to a partnership between Capella Healthcare and athenahealth, affiliated physicians are eligible to receive special pricing on athenahealth’s cloud-based services. Capella Healthcare and athenahealth share the goal of providing high quality and cost effective care to practices while helping practices get more money and more control for better financial health.
athenahealth offers integrated practice management, electronic health record (EHR) and patient communication services that help practices get paid more, and faster, with less work and hassle. Offerings include:
- Easy-to-use web-based software lets you see and manage all aspects of your practice’s performance. Easily manage scheduling and billing; monitor productivity, utilization and cash flow; and better handle patient encounters – without costly setup costs or upgrades.
- A constantly updated, real-time database of insurance and clinical rules. athenahealth clients have access to our proprietary compilation of industry-trusted data. It includes billing codes, Pay for Performance and formulary requirements and clinical guidelines and protocols – updated as changes occur. It even flags potential billing errors, so you can fix them before they cause problems. Database rules are embedded into your billing workflow. They also “pop up” as part of your patient encounters, giving you instant access to drug interaction alerts, drug allergy alerts, and information needed for reporting.
- Back-office services to take on your most time-consuming tasks. We free up more of your time by handling tasks like tracking claims, managing denials, posting EOBs and payments, and digitizing faxes. We build and maintain electronic connections for you – to payers, labs, pharmacies, hospitals, medical imaging archive systems, and health information exchanges (HIEs). We route critical results directly to appropriate members of your staff, including the appropriate doctors. We even flag clinical results that aren’t received when expected.
We help practices work more efficiently. We get you paid faster and more fully. And we help you gain the time and insight you need to deliver better care and grow in the way you’ve always wanted.
