TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 19, 2018
The Center for Medical Weight Loss (CMWL), a provider of ObesityTx – a turnkey, scalable platform for non-surgical medical obesity treatment – today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. through athenahealth’s ‘More Disruption Please’ (MDP) program. As part of the athenahealth® Marketplace, this newly integrated application is now available to athenahealth’s growing network of 111,000 healthcare providers to offer a clinically-proven, structured framework for improving patient health outcomes through weight loss while generating incremental practice revenue.
CMWL’s ObesityTx includes features such as clinical and practice development training for obesity medicine, predictive patient weight loss, an interactive behavioral counseling system with personalized recommendations, and documentation for obesity service insurance reimbursement. The CMWL program allows medical providers to address high-risk obese patient populations efficiently by following the guidelines established by the US Preventive Services Task Force and CMS for obesity screening and follow-up care.
“For over a decade, CMWL has filled a critical gap in the health care system by enabling medical providers across the United States to effectively treat patients suffering from obesity, which the American Medical Association acknowledges is a chronic disease that should be addressed by the medical community,” said Kevin Eberly, CEO of CMWL. “Now, athenaNet® customers can easily support that vision through optimized weight loss patient workflows and access to a host of tools and resources designed to achieve meaningful outcomes. For practices seeking new revenue sources or a distinct advantage in the transition to value-based care, CMWL’s framework supports those goals as well.”
“We have been a part of the CMWL network for over ten years,” said Dr. E. Martin Maida, an athenaNet user who owns an independent internal medicine practice in Livingston, New Jersey. “The program has enabled us to enhance our delivery of wellness services to our patients, and this integration helps us become even more productive.”
athenahealth is a network-enabled, results-oriented services company that offers medical record, revenue cycle, patient engagement, care coordination, and population health services for hospital and ambulatory clients. The company’s vision is to build a national health information backbone to help make healthcare work as it should. As an MDP partner, The Center for Medical Weight Loss joins a network of like-minded healthcare professionals who are looking to disrupt established approaches in healthcare that simply aren’t working, aren’t good enough, or aren’t advancing the industry and help providers thrive in the face of industry change.
