athenahealth Unveils Medical Coding To Reduce Administrative Burden For Providers

athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled software and services for medical groups and health systems nationwide, today announced the general availability of its new athenaOne® Medical Coding solution. This service will relieve providers and staff from coding-related work that slows them down and delays claim submissions.

With this service, athenahealth customers will gain access to high-quality coding support via certified specialists who help deliver timely and reliable medical coding within the athenaOne platform. Communication between the practice and athenahealth’s medical coders is integrated directly into the interface and launches seamlessly from the provider’s workflow. For practices and medical groups looking to reduce the administrative burden of medical coding, athenahealth’s new service will provide unmatched ease of coding support from a highly qualified team of coders.

Physicians spend an average of 90 minutes after hours focused on coding work, according to time and productivity studies conducted by athenahealth. With athenaOne Medical Coding, providers and staff are freed up to focus on higher value work and spend more time with patients.

Through athenahealth’s Medical Coding, Village Pediatrics – a two-clinician pediatrics primary care practice in Seattle – saw a 50% reduction in clinicians’ time spent coding, a streamlined integration, and more billable codes identified.
