In an article earlier this week from Healthcare IT News, Editor-At-Large Bernie Monegain, shares that Athenahealth unveiled a secure text messaging service that can be integrated with their cloud-based EHR platform called athenaText. This will allow any healthcare professionals across the country to join the Athenahealth network by accessing athenaText at no cost via mobile.
This service is HIPAA-compliant, efficient, and secure. According to Abbe Don, AthenaHealth's Vice President of Strategic Design, "We designed athenaText so doctors and staff can communicate with each other wherever and whenever they need on a unified, easy-to-use platform".
athenaText can be used by doctors in and out of the office to respond to inquiries that require immediate attention. Kevin Groszkowski, MD. of Annapolis Internal Medicine in Maryland stated, "Now our entire care team is communicating effectively and securely on one, fully-integrated system". He goes on to say, "What I love is that the care isn't slowed down because I missed a call or email, and patients aren't kept waiting".
