Phreesia partners with athenahealth to drive profitability and operational efficiency throughout health care organizations

New York, N.Y. – May 28, 2014 – Phreesia, the leader in health care point of service, today announced a partnership with athenahealth as part of athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program. Phreesia works with athenahealth to link athenahealth’s growing network of more than 52,000 health care providers with Phreesia’s innovative patient self-service and mobile platform to offer a tightly integrated solution that automates front-office workflow and drives tangible bottom-line results. Through electronic payment collection, data collection and consent form management, the comprehensive solution helps medical practices increase cash flow and maximize efficiencies, enabling them to shift staff to higher-value tasks.

“Together, Phreesia and athenahealth give us the ability to maximize our time with our patients by eliminating the manual work involved in patient intake, managing collections, and standardizing intake processes across our organization,” says longtime athenahealth user Dr. Chaitanya Chavda of Mansfield Primary Care Doctors. “With administrative staff being asked to do more and more, this solution is quickly becoming a necessity to help medical practices manage operations and maintain profitability.”

 athenahealth is a cloud-based services company on a mission to build an information backbone to help make health care work as it should. Through the MDP program, athenahealth is accelerating the introduction of 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 Phreesia to gain access to the more than 52,000 providers that are already plugged into athenahealth’s cloud-based network.

“Phreesia, ranked No. 1 by KLAS for patient self-service, and athenahealth, KLAS’s No. 1 overall software vendor, are a natural fit,” said Kyle Armbrester, vice president of business development, athenahealth. “Together, we are singularly focused on helping athenaNet users maximize cash flow, save staff time, and engage patients. Our tightly integrated solution delivers real results for health care organizations of all sizes.”
