We are delighted to be joining forces to further accelerate our industry’s movement towards patient-centered care.
Our companies have worked together closely since athenahealth’s investment in Patient IO last year. It soon became clear that marrying our mobile care management competencies with athenahealth’s unique, network-enabled services was a path to significant value.
“Care coordination and patient self-management is the next big ground on which healthcare will compete,” said Jon Porter, Senior Vice President of Emerging Services, athenahealth. “By adding Patient IO to our portfolio and delivering their solution as a native component of athenahealth’s population health services, we’ve been able to strengthen our ability to partner with providers as they enter into, and become masters of value-based care delivery. Patient IO accelerates our movement towards an exciting strategic milestone: becoming a trusted resource and partner to the patient.”
By taking a patient-centered approach to development and embracing the potential of mobile, we can together reach more healthcare organizations than ever before. Our combined offering will deliver actionable insights that help our customer organizations transition to a value-based care environment, improving outcomes and quality at every turn.
Differentiated by our API-first architecture and omni-channel engagement, Patient IO will form the basis of athenahealth’s patient-facing mobile application, athenaWell. This integrated functionality is already live in market with select clients today, and will be made available to all athenahealth Population Health clients beginning this fall.
Patient IO will continue to service our full roster of customers, and sell into non-athenahealth entities. With this acquisition, we are excited for the myriad of benefits we expect will accrue to our customers. With our combined capabilities, we look forward to delivering more value to our customers and users than ever before – and for years to come.
