our beginnings

athenahealth didn’t start as a cloud-based services provider for medical practices. We actually began in 1997 as a medical practice and birthing center in California called athena women’s health and the Birthplace. Founders quickly recognized that they were spending an enormous amount of effort just trying to get paid for their services. When they couldn’t find a solution to their problem, they developed their own.

What emerged was the origin of the cloud-based services athenahealth is known for today. With our proven combination of cloud-based software, networked knowledge and back-office services, we are focused on creating a national health information backbone that helps healthcare work as it should.

how we work

United by a passion for our mission to heal healthcare, and driven by the force of our collective potential, work at athenahealth is fast-paced, collaborative, data-driven—and above all—it inspires us. As we've grown from a start-up to a nation-wide healthcare IT solution, we strive to perfect our products and services. And we're always working to bring partnerships with clients to the next level.

 

diversity & inclusion

We believe in a spirit of unconditional positive regard for each other—and while we strive to become caregivers’ most trusted support system, that goes double for our colleagues. athenahealth is proud of its four Employee Resource Groups that are focused on creating an inclusive, diverse and dynamic workplace: the athenaDiversity Council, athenaParents, athenaProud, and the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF). Through the WLF, we have partnered with the Lean In organization.

our culture

athenahealth was launched with a disruptive, entrepreneurial spirit. It’s important to us to preserve that culture, even as we grow as an organization. We offer so much more than competitive benefits—at athenahealth, we enjoy engaged and vocal colleagues, creative workspaces, food trucks, lawn games, a casual dress code, discounted gym memberships, and more. Plus, all employees are bonus eligible.

Olivia Adams
Lead Member Of Technical Staff

“I enjoy working at athenahealth because I am making something that matters.  My passion isn’t writing code - it’s what writing code enables me to do, which is make something for other people.  And there’s no nobler cause than healthcare.”

 

Sherry Cheuk
Product Operations Manager

“athenahealth has a mission to transform healthcare, which is something I really admire.  Every company out there is trying to grow, but I think our focus on making an impact and delivering value is really powerful.  Our work is about improving people’s lives.”

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...
