athenahealth partners with Intacct to better serve financial needs of hospitals
One of the most inefficient and time-consuming aspects of running a hospital or medical facility is managing the often disjointed back-office financial systems. To help alleviate this burden, athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled services and mobile applications for health care providers nationwide, and Intacct, a leading provider of best-in-class cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, today announced a new technology partnership to deliver a comprehensive cloud-based financial solution for hospitals. As part of this strategic partner agreement, athenahealth will integrate and sell Intacct’s financial applications with its revenue cycle management services.
“At athenahealth, we’re focused on being a trusted partner to health care organizations of all sizes, one that enables them to focus more on the practice of medicine and less on the associated business processes and administrative tasks,” said Kyle Armbrester, Chief Product Officer, athenahealth. “By partnering with Intacct, we believe that we’ve vastly extended the value and measurable results we bring to hospitals. Together, we’ve combined our financial, accounting, and clinical expertise to bring to market a new standard of cloud services that we believe will redefine what’s possible when it comes to visibility into, and management surrounding, the entire financial picture for hospitals.”
