Inovalon and athenahealth partner to deliver real-time EHR data integration
Inovalon, a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled services and mobile applications for healthcare providers nationwide. Together, the organizations will work to establish interoperability between Inovalon’s advanced healthcare data aggregation and analytics platform and athenaNet, athenahealth’s single nationwide network of 80,000 healthcare providers. Inovalon’s analytics leverage more than 11 billion medical events within its Medical Outcomes Research for Efficiency and Effectiveness Registry (MORE2 Registry). The athenahealth network contains over 81 million patient records and manages over 5 billion annual data transactions.
The partnership automates the transfer of structured and unstructured clinical data on behalf of athenahealth’s participating clients from athenahealth’s EHR service, athenaClinicals, to Inovalon to support its clients. This connectivity will help to provide Inovalon’s clients with a more accurate, complete, and timely view of patients, eliminate the need for costly and disruptive chart extractions, and foster greater opportunities for collaboration between providers and payers who are responsible for managing the health of populations.
“athenahealth is dedicated to making its network the most connected in health care in order to generate insight, reduce inefficiencies, and produce results,” said Jonathan Bush, chief executive officer, athenahealth. “By joining forces with Inovalon and enabling our clients to share necessary patient data, we believe we can deepen both organizations’ access to information, transparency, and insight in order to drive deeper collaboration between payers and providers, close care gaps, and drive better outcomes.”
“We are pleased to partner with athenahealth, one of the industry’s most disruptive innovators,” said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., chief executive officer and chairman of the board, Inovalon. “To deliver superior care and succeed in today’s value-based healthcare environment, payers and providers must have both a highly informed understanding of their patients and efficient alignment with increasingly complex healthcare payment models. The connectivity being established between Inovalon and athenahealth is a strong demonstration of how data connectivity will help to drive healthcare transformation.”
