What AthenaHealth Does Well
Users who gave AthenaHealth a positive review cited the convenience of being able to access the system from anywhere. They commended the robust centralized system that enables them to monitor the whole medical process — from charting and billing to payment — in real-time. Good customer support was also cited.
“The Implementation Team works well with you to ease the transition for a “Go Live” date. All of the specific forms that you use can be loaded into the EMR to be able to print when you need them from any person’s chart. There’s also transparency throughout the whole process: from the intake, charting, billing, and payment. I also like the ability to log in from any location using a secure internet connection.”

What AthenaHealth Does Not Do Well
Users who gave AthenaHealth a critical review said that the system updates are confusing and tend to disrupt their operational workflow. They also mentioned that some functionalities are quite challenging to learn and understand especially for beginners.
“Some functionalities are too complicated to use and very difficult to understand. It would be good if there were prompts on our screen when updates have changed our flow. We are expected to keep ourselves regularly updated with the changes. Some changes we are unable to understand until a problem occurs and we need customer service to help us.”
