athenahealth aligns with SnapMD in telehealth pact

SnapMD is partnering with athenahealth, putting its cloud-based virtual care management platform on the athenahealth marketplace via its More Disruption Please program. The technology will be integrated with athenaClinicals and athenaCollector EHR and revenue cycle management tools.

The white-label SnapMD telemedicine platform features robust back-end technology to manage digital health, with an intuitive workflow in a single interface – enabling easier patient encounters for departments across the health system, officials say.

The technology aims to help providers more directly engage patients remotely via consumer-based devices, using its HIPAA-compliant platform to extend care delivery.

The company's partnership with athenahealth will make its enterprise-level VCM tools available to more than 85,000 healthcare providers, helping them offer telehealth consults under the brand they choose.

"With the athenahealth relationship and integration, healthcare providers delivering single or multiple telehealth services can now effectively deliver care remotely in a convenient digital environment under their operating umbrella," said Dave Skibinski, CEO of SnapMD, in a statement.
