Our culture is our people

Our purpose is ambitious: to break down the walls the healthcare industry puts up. So our culture is rooted in that drive to push boundaries.

We can’t meet that goal without passionate, intelligent, innovative employees. And we believe that an environment that welcomes, develops, and promotes all employees is crucial for reaching that goal.

Diversity and inclusion

athenahealth today serves more than 160,000 medical providers who in turn take care of more than 10% of the U.S. population. Our clients and their patients cover every inch of America’s vast range of diversity. To serve them to our highest potential, it is crucially important that our workforce reflect that same diversity.

To support our diverse workforce and our inclusive culture, we support five Employee Resource Groups (ERGs): the athenaDiversity Council, athenaEnabled, athenaParents, athenaProud, and the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF). Each of our ERGs provides programming to create community among each affinity group. For example, through the WLF, athenahealth partners with the Lean In organization and supports peer groups open to all employees that meet regularly to learn, support, and grow together.

In graduate school, I learned usability testing in a very formal, considered way.

There was no way they would deal with a lengthy Powerpoint presentation, or dozens of issues. So, I developed a format for lean test reporting, which enabled me to plan, exe...

As designers, we like to think of ourselves as makers. When we’re working on large, wicked problems, the challenge is that “making” is no longer a solo endeavor; it’s something that requires a lot of people and functionality to make happen. This can leave designers feeling like we’ve had to compromise our standards to appease business or development stakeholders. It also inadvertently creates an us-versus-them mentality that actually makes it less likely that we’ll be successful in m...
