athenahealth Selects Mashery to Advance Openness and Innovation in Health Care

athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based services for electronic health record (EHR), practice management, and care coordination, today announced the Company is working with Mashery to provide new web-services-based APIs (application programming interfaces) for the health care IT developer community. These new offerings strengthen partner access to athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program, an initiative that brings together entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, developers, academics, and others who believe in breeding innovation and stoking disruption as a means to overcome the staid and broken processes within health care.

Through its work with Mashery, the world’s leading provider of API management technology and services, athenahealth is unleashing turn-key connectivity to its cloud-based platform of HIT services and to its existing network of about 40,000 providers nationwide. This massive, open API initiative offers innovators an onramp to develop best-of-breed, HIPAA-compliant health care applications that can be easily introduced and integrated within health care provider workflows.

“With Mashery, we are yet again putting a stake in the cloud; we’re lowering the point of entry for the best and brightest across the technology community to plug into our network, to engage our captive audience of tens of thousands of providers, and to innovate on their behalf. Come! Help us disrupt and improve health care,” said Jonathan Bush, CEO and chairman, athenahealth. “athenahealth is building a cloud-based, information backbone—similar to what Amazon.com is for consumers, our platform will serve as a one-stop shop for providers seeking solutions to help them meet clinical and business goals. Unlike traditional HIT vendors that operate in closed silos and are unwilling to connect beyond their existing client base, we are all about openness.”

Kyle Armbrester, director of Business Development and head of More Disruption Please at athenahealth, added: “We are modernizing health care IT in a big way with Mashery by streamlining connectivity to our platform, and allowing the developer community to plug in and innovate. We’re providing the data and knowledge from our cloud-based network, a captive audience for developers to innovate for, and an online sandbox to do it all in. The bottom line is that there’s not enough innovation in health care; by lowering the point of entry for the development community, we’re hoping they’ll be enticed to create solutions for a cause that impacts us all—our health care.”

“We’re eager to pair our working knowledge of the current health care app transformation with athenahealth’s platform vision,” said Oren Michels, CEO and co-founder of Mashery. “Mashery has years of experience helping its health care customers achieve tangible API program success—such as the 20 app prototypes built at the Health 2.0 Code-a-thon we hosted last October, where developers used data from fitness monitors, the FDA and insurance providers in apps that encourage ongoing healthy behaviors.”

More Disruption Please (MDP) is athenahealth’s business development program; it is aimed at launching a massive surge of disruptive innovation in health care for the overall advancement in the way patient care is coordinated, delivered, and reimbursed. The MDP advantage is that qualified, high-quality health care innovators can gain access to athenahealth’s growing cloud-based network of about 40,000 providers. Through the MDP program, athenahealth will continue to introduce new services and accelerate the introduction of high-value innovation via the cloud.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
