athenahealth Inc. is a Watertown, Massachusetts-based developer of Web-based electronic health record (EHR), electronic medical billing and medical practice management software for small and medium-sized physician’s offices.

The company’s co-founders, Jonathan Bush and Todd Park, developed their first software in 1997, shortly after purchasing a birthing practice in California and growing increasingly frustrated with the amount of paper records the practice generated. Today athenahealth applications are used by nearly 25,000 medical providers in 45 states and the District of Columbia.

athenahealth has three primary software offerings:

  • athenaCollector, a billing and practice management system;
  • athenaClinical, an EHR system, and
  • athenaCommunicator, a medical scheduling system.

In addition, athenahealth collects data on medical claims billing transactions and collaborates with the publication Physicians Practice to produce PayerView, an annual report that rates the performance aof health insurance companies and other payers.
