Business History

AthenaHealth Inc is a provider of cloud-based services and mobile applications for medical groups and health systems. Its services include athenaCollector, athenaClinicals, athenaCommunicator, and athenaCoordinator.

In 1997, athenahealth cofounders Jonathan Bush and Todd Park started Athena Women’s Health, a women’s health and birthing practice in San Diego, California. The practice encountered problems being reimbursed by payers. Lacking a system to track insurance claims, Bush and Park formed athenahealth, Inc. to develop a practice management system. Todd’s brother, software developer Ed Park, helped to develop a revenue cycle management system with a “rules engine” of dynamic billing rules data. In 2000, athenahealth introduced athenaCollector, its cloud-based revenue cycle and practice management service.

In 2006, the company launched athenaClinicals, reported as the “first economically sustainable, service-based” electronic medical records (EMR) system. athenahealth, Inc. announced an initial public offering of its common stock on June 22, 2007. The offering was completed on September 20, 2007, at a price of $18 per share. It trades on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol ATHN.

  1. I saw a doctor with Athena Health whom I had seen in 2013. Something has changed dramatically. He only spent 10 minutes with me, frightened me and told me my tests were abnormal. I had them repeated by another physician and they were “normal” based on my history. The bill was outrageous and I am now getting calls. I work for the railroad and my BCBS is excellent. His bill for 10 minutes was calculated at over $400. I have met my deductible and I was in total shock to be treated so unkindly. I was up front with him and told him why I was there. My issue was never addressed. His tech never made eye contact with me and I am severely disappointed. He is with Fort Worth Heart in Fort Worth, Texas. My name is Pat Gestring.
