Humana and athenahealth collaborate to reward physician performance

Aug. 9, 2010

Aug. 9 – Today, Humana and athenahealth launched The Humana-athenahealth Medical Home EHR Rewards Program which marks the first time a national health plan is collaborating with a practice-management and EHR solution to jointly provide useful, actionable information to physicians in support of patient-centered care. As part of the alliance, Humana will subsidize the implementation cost of athenahealth’s EHR service, athenaClinicals, for physicians who are interested in and eligible for participation. Humana and athenahealth will jointly promote the program to approximately 20,000 family and internal medicine physicians who are part of Humana’s national provider network, with Humana initially subsidizing the implementation cost for 100 physician practices projected to represent 1,000 physicians. Participating physicians could realize additional revenue of 20 percent beyond their current fee-for-service base collections from Humana. athenahealth CEO, Jonathan Bush, will be on CNBC this morning discussing the program.
