Chiron Health & athenahealth bring telemedicine to physician practices


Chiron Health, a HIPAA-compliant video visit provider, has partnered with athenahealth's more disruption please program to allow athenahealth clients to integrate secure video visits into existing clinical workflows.

Together, the companies will work to link athenahealth’s growing network of more than 67,000 health care providers with the capabilities of Chiron Health so they can more efficiently deliver remote follow-up care through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing.

“The healthcare industry has been talking about the promise of telemedicine for years,” said Andrew O’Hara, Chiron Health’s founder and chief executive officer. 

“This partnership now allows thousands of athenahealth clients to seamlessly integrate video visits into their existing clinical workflow. We believe this is a major step forward in outpatient telemedicine that will enable physician practices across the country to provide more convenient access to patients.”

Chiron Health is helping both physicians and mid-level providers connect with patients from home or work by using their existing devices. 

“From routine follow-ups like reviewing labs or adjusting medications, to minor urgent care issues, video visits are an ideal way to provide high-quality care to patients without the hassle of an office visit,” added O’Hara. 

“For these lower acuity visits that don’t require a physical exam, practices are seeing significant productivity and patient satisfaction gains by offering telemedicine.”
