The companies will work to connect athenahealth’s growing network of more than 67,000 health care providers with the capabilities of Everseat to offer patients easier scheduling access and real-time notifications about open appointments.
Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) October 14, 2015
Everseat, a technology company with a cutting-edge platform that allows patients to schedule doctor’s appointments directly from their smartphones, announced today that it has partnered with athenahealth, a leading provider of cloud-based services and mobile applications for medical groups and health systems through athenahealth’s More Disruption Please (MDP) program. Together, the companies will work to connect athenahealth’s growing network of more than 67,000 health care providers with the capabilities of Everseat to offer patients easier scheduling access and real-time notifications about open appointments.
As a technology-based solution created with doctors and patients in mind, Everseat aligns well with athenahealth’s overarching goal to use cloud-based services to build an information backbone that makes health care work as it should. athenahealth’s MDP program advances that goal by accelerating high-value innovation via the cloud to provide new services to help providers thrive in the face of industry change and pressure. Through the MDP program, athenahealth partners with innovators, entrepreneurs, companies, investors, and individuals — those who are passionate about disrupting established approaches in health care that simply aren’t working, aren’t good enough, or aren’t advancing the industry. The program invites qualified companies like Everseat to gain access to the providers already plugged into athenahealth’s cloud-based network.
“[A]thenahealth has spearheaded an important initiative with their MDP program,” said Jeff Peres, the CEO and co-founder of Everseat. “We are excited to join such a forward-thinking, innovative company in the effort to make the needed transition to patient-centered care.”
