San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
pMD announced a partnership with athenahealth as part of athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program. Together, the companies have connected pMD’s mobile charge capture software with athenahealth’s medical billing and practice management software so they can efficiently deliver the information and resources its mutual customers need.
pMD creates easy-to-use mobile applications to capture billing charges, manage patient information, and facilitate communication between physicians. The charge capture company is dedicated to helping medical groups jettison paperwork for a more streamlined, digital process. This is further strengthened with the pMD - athenahealth partnership.
"pMD and athenahealth share the same philosophy of writing software that doctors love, so partnering with them was natural," pMD CEO Philippe d’Offay said. "We’re both creating user-friendly software that eliminates the paper and the administrative elements of healthcare that burden doctors and their practices. The brilliance of the MDP program is that it allows us as vendors to produce something that is more than simply the sum of our parts. The MDP program makes our mutual customers even happier because they can focus on the issues that matter most."
pMD’s collaboration with athenahealth through the MDP program will introduce greater value and customizability to healthcare providers already using athenaCollector. pMD extends a practice and athenahealth into the hospital setting. It also connects information from the hospital back to the practice and athenahealth. As a result, providers can stay on top of everything in real-time and communicate efficiently.
By partnering with innovative companies like pMD, athenahealth is accelerating high-value innovation via the cloud, providing new services to help providers thrive in the face of industry change and pressure.
"As we work to be medical caregivers’ most trusted service, we’ll continue to innovate and build partnerships that create mutually beneficial synergies for providers and patients, introduce new efficiencies to care coordination, and nurture and enable patient engagement," said athenahealth’s Kyle Armbrester, Vice President of Business Development.
