We haven't gone live yet so we don't know how well we like it.

Pros

So we like our customer service with the onboarding. They have an incentive to help us make money. We look forward to working with them.

Cons

The customer service can be slow to answer questions but answers are usually given within the day. We don't know exactly what we don't like yet.

Why we are leaving Athena....

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

Product/company has not lived up to the promises made to increase cash flow. It's difficult to have control over claims and numerous times we found service items that were written off by Athena rather than being researched for additional reimbursement. We feel Athena is not a good match for a small practice. Cost of numerous features that a small practice does not utilize makes the cost of Athena too expensive.

Pros

Insurance eligibility checking system. Data entry of claims easy to navigate. Basic scheduling was ok.

Cons

Having funds go to your specific bank, then having to transfer monies making cash flow delay for the practice by several days. Very time consuming to find correct insurance plans, need a way to identify insurance payor by EDI number. Customer service needs required long hold times and we feel this was a significantly poor use of our staff time.

Athena is a great product if you are just going to use it and do the billing on your own (in house). The monthly cost is outrageous given all of the errors they make on posting and the terrible customer support. We also experienced many issues with the reminder call service leaving blank or incorrect messages. I can say that the program is VERY easy to navigate, the patient portal is a nice layout, the interfaces work very well for labs, faxes and pharmacy requests. Overall I would not recommend Athena to anyone because of the cost and the horrible customer service and repeated billing mistakes.

Pros

user friendly
sorts electronic faxes
electronic orders
assists with MU reporting
nice/patient friendly patient portal
appointment reminders
AR/productivity reports are easy to read and run

Cons

customer service is severely lacking
chronic problems with posting payments
EOB erros
document issues
the cost is crazy high
issues with reminder calls not being sent correctly

This is not recommended for a small provider office or if you are using a different software for documentation of the patients health history.

Pros

I cant say that this product has any easy aspect to it. It does have a nice eye friendly view but has many difficult ways to do things.

Cons

If you want to print any reports you have to do this in excel. If you have any staff that are not savy in Excel it makes it more difficult to be able to function daily in the office. It takes a long time to learn to do their reporting and even then you have to be a genius!

Athena is customizable and assists our practice in every aspect. Having our billing and our EHR in one system that has a great support system really makes everyone's job easier.

Pros

Athena has really made my job as billing coordinator so easy. I am able to help my physicians improve their dictation which allows me to more accurately bill for the procedures they perform. Plus Athena follows up on my claims!

Cons

Sometimes Athena has holds or denial reason that may not be the most accurate. I have to reach out to Athena to assist in resolving the issues. (which is very easy to do) We also have to customize our templates to fit our specialty and services we provide. Once we get the templates fixed, it makes dictating so much easier.

It is a great system, a lot to learn at first but once you learn the system it is easy to use, and everything flows. When in the chart everything is there and easy to find, you go the the patients demographics area and again anything demo or insurance, billing etc is all there. Great system, I've been using athena since 2012 and it is top notch.

Pros

Ease of use. Great tracking tools, robust templates and reporting system. Visually easy to follow. At any point in the visit you can see where the patient is at and for how long.

Cons

I wish it contained its own LIS (Lab Information System). Other than coming up with this I cannot think of any Cons.

Marketed as a product for multiple disciplines and specialties, however, does not support occupational therapy services. OTs are told to use PT templates and configurations despite (1) potential conflicts with documentation for reimbursement and (2) being initially told that OTs were a supported discipline.
Account managers are not useful as they refer back to the service center for all issues. It is an endless cycle. Not knowingly, we were not set up properly before launch, and despite repeatedly telling the AM that the system wasn't sufficient for us and that we had to work harder to make it work for us, 7 months later we find that ours is not configured as it should have been. This was discovered after connecting in The community on The resource hub, which is another brush off that The managers refer clients to repeatedly, as well add o-help. There has been no response on this or even consideration of trying to keep a client happy by an account manager.
The system is severely lacking and counterintuitive, and if individuals make suggestions for improvement, they are "voted on" for consideration, even if the suggestions or requests are standard in the industry or required by governing bodies. Many requests and improvements are not made. We truly question is up to date and compliant.
Clients are told to create templates, or modify current (such as a standard facesheet), by coding them independently. Most medical practitioners (1) are not coders and (2) are not paying for a service that requires more time and effort than less. I was actually told by a higher level account manager that the solution could be to hire an outside coding agency to complete this task (vs it being standard in the existing product or have a dedicated person in Athenahealth that assists with coding needs).
The therapist reviews in the hub are not favorable. Individuals considering purchase of system would never know how many years of complaints exist and "make it work" scenarios. Unfortunately, changing EMRs is not simple and quick and is often costly. The billing portion is fair but mistakes are still made with submission requiring extra time in "hold" and delays in reimbursement. AthenaClinicals is just horrible.
There is a definite environment fostered within Athena that is brush off, dodge issues, let clients figure it out, and if they leave "oh well." We are disheartened and infuriated at the same time. If our practice had the same reviews, both public and internally, I would be very ashamed, take a step back,
and wonder where things went wrong, let alone REALLY wrong.
Bottomline: if anyone sees this who is considering Athena, regardless of discipline, go with another service provider. We as existing clients see ALOT in the community feedback on our resource hub. You will be entering something that you will then be prepared to get out of with excess cost.

Pros

Practice management reports and features are in abundance if that is your priority. The reminder call system does what it is supposed to. Community section in resource hub lets you know that others are just as frustrated and upset. Most of the customer service reps are very pleasant and helpful when the functionality or configuration is there; of it is sub par and missing, they do apologize.

Cons

The clinical documentation product is terrible. Supports physician- based practices vs rehab/OT/PT (though clients can see comments on product for all disciplines). Lack of quality templates that are compliant with regulatory agency requirements. Lack of feedback options. Lack of support. Account managers do not actually help to manage any issues you have with product. Very time consuming to call in for support repeatedly. Athenahealth clearly does not review feedback on community resource hub. Individuals that process Athenafax can be lazy and not process items with documents clearly identified with Athena identifiers/ printing, leaving in review for practice to handle (extra work). Honestly...too many cons to list.

please do your research and make sure you know what you are getting. I am sure for some, this works great, but if you have issues or quirky IPA, getting Athena to help to make your claims go through can be painful.
Too many clicks on PM system to get things done quickly.
Better layout of the calendar for schedule would be nice.

Pros

good customer service team - though sometimes cannot resolve issue right away, always courteous and willing to help

Cons

cumbersome with multiple back and forth to make changes specific to your practice needs. Their insurance AR may look good, but that's because if they cannot figure something out, they will send a statement to the patients so the AR for "self pay" is outrageous.

Pros

Cloud-based. Easy install and deployment. Has everything an EMR needs to have from Registration, Clinical Documentation to Billing.

Cons

Athena was originally used as a practice management tool. There seems to be some lacking in simple functionalities. For example, the lack of a search functionality in the report tools. There are too many steps and clicks to try to get to a patient's chart. Slow response from customer service. Put in a request to build an interface and they told me that it would take over 3 months to assign an engineer to my ticket. That's not including the time it would take them to put it in place.

Athena has been a real disappointment and hassle to deal with. I spend more time on Athena EMR then I do with patients. This was not the case with out other two EMR systems. We just wanted to combine billing and patient's notes in one system thus we switched to Athena.

Pros

It is an EMR system to use, can communicate with patients on the portal but have not way of avoiding portal communication.

Cons

Lack of knowledge when you call for support at Athena. Many times I call for assistance and the have no answer and have to get back to you.
Inefficient.
They state you make more money with them since they have high rate of patient collection. However, we have more patients then ever before with outstanding bills and Athena fail to follow up on patients and these unpaid balances. There is no support for that.
Once you sign up for Athena they drop your support and will switch you randomly to new managers to start all over since they cannot follow through. It takes weeks to have a support session with anyone that has some knowledge of the system. They have too many clients and not enough support. After a while, you become numb to it all and give up hope that it will be ever efficient and make practicing easier.

Pros

Adding orders to the diagnosis is simple and quick. The general aesthetic is nice to look at and it is simple to learn and navigate.

Cons

It would be easier to have the option to toggle between patients instead of returning to the main screen. It would also be more efficient to search and input ICD 10 codes in Athena rather than using Google to search for the codes.

N/A

I started working w/Athena in Aug 2016. Since then our Admin has been advising me to call or web chat, search online & use the search features Athena has to offer. I have NEVER gotten a question resolved by calling. I end up walking the "helper" through the features & page. This was very upsetting. I've been put on hold for 20 minutes at a time while an "advisor" looks up a solution in their manual. As a result, I hung up in frustration. I then received an e-mail confirming my problem had been resolved. What a joke! That seems like it is just to appease the numbers needed. There are no training manuals, no courses to take & definitely nobody to teach a person how to use this program. A rep. who no longer works for Athena set us up years ago. This is not geared towards a specific practice, which is even more frustrating. Hopefully, you can respect the time I took to write this review & improve your program. It would be great to receive training as well, or at least an instruction manual.

Pros

billing features are simple; insurance program automatically runs insurances to see if they are active

Cons

I've been in Ophthalmology for over 15 years. As a scheduling manager, the features are not user-friendly, as I have worked with 4 different programs. Look to NextGen for template applications & features. It would be great to implement them to Athena. There are color coded columns, ability to apply templates over templates without taking out exception days, ability to write a VISIBLE book note at the top of the doctor's schedule to alert the schedules, etc. Also, the features include looking a multiple doctors schedules at a time and even ability to view several different books or multiple doctors!

If I could give negative stars for customer support (after go-live) I would but that is not an option.
Overall Athena has not lived up to its hype. Document management for a large practice with multiple locations and two specialties is horrendous. Surgery scheduling module is painful as well. We knew that going into this product but we held out hope that our schedulers would catch on, unfortunately, it just does not work for our practice at this point. The new scheduling module might be better so we are holding out hope. If considering this product make sure you fully understand the buckets and document management. And I mean spend more time learning these pieces of the system than you could have ever possibly imagined. Overall, It is a struggle.

Pros

Reports. Co-sourcing of billing office. Pre-go live project planning. Support at go-live.

Cons

Document management. Task Assignment Overrides. Customer Service. Ability to solve problems in a timely manner. Lack of in-depth training necessary for such a complex system.

Advice to Others

Do your homework. Call others w/ Athena and not just the groups they tell you to call. Map out your document flow not just once, not twice, but at least 6 times so you can anticipate bottlenecks and identify red flags w/ their document management process. Don't set up two departments (we have pain and neurosurgery) as it creates way more problems than it's worth. Make sure you fully understand how the buckets and spend a great deal of time on this aspect of the system.

We have been using this software since October 2014. They are more than a software vendor. They have a staff that is full of knowledgeable professionals that can assist in every facet of our practice. They were the best source for making the transition from ICD9 to ICD 10. They are able to assist in every facet of our practice by dealing with both software issues and or Best Practic Management.

Pros

The software is user-friendly. The staff is well trained and very very polite, patient and professional.

Cons

They do not have an office in my hometown where I can go to work for them.

Advice to Others

Do not hesitate to call and ask for help if you are sure about something. There are many bells and whistle available to make your job easy. You should stop to see if there may be a shortcut to an operation and there usually is something that can make your job easier.

Athena has a great and robust reporting module especially helpful for practices attesting for meaningful use and PCMH, the problem with this is that it is difficult to do on your own and requires a Customer service ticket which takes a long time to get answered.

The charting is easy once you get your templates setup. If you do not do this on the front end (during implementation) getting help to do later is impossible and you will need help as it is not very intuitive. Many templates were lost during one of their upgrades without warning so it has been difficult to rebuild them. We have grown and added locations while on Athena and because they are your primary biller if they do not verify all of the credentialing that you send them you cannot bill. This was problematic because you cannot directly talk to the persons doing this there is always a go-between with Athena.

I love the EPCS for patients requiring a schedule, as a pediatrician I have quite a few ADHD pts and nice not to worry about assessing where prescriptions really lost! No need for paper. However, with one of their upgrades, I can no longer save medications so must write sig and quantity for every medication each time which is time-consuming.

Lastly, the promised billing has failed our practice. The workflow was to be we would not need a biller and get increased revenue with clean claims. We see a large Medicaid population and were not told that they had virtually no experience with that and even going to them with specifics as to the problem it would still take upwards a month to fix. Not only have we not gotten rid of our biller but increased his time as many Medicaid claims he submits thru the portal yet Athena charges us for this. The account managers are unavailable in meetings vacations or no longer with the company.
Pros: Reporting, Easy charting once template is created, EPCS, Integration of charges to the superbill
Cons: Customer support, E-prescribing, Not reasonable expectation to not need a biller, Overpriced, not a good fit if you are a practice that adds services, providers, or locations, must use their bank to receive payments and then it takes 1-2 days to get transferred to your business account

Athena is easy to use when it comes to scheduling, billing and messaging. I would highly recommend it for any busy practice.

Great program. Enjoy that we have the ability to customize but wish we could go even further. I wish there was an easier way to contact support with questions instead of over the phone, with a busy office it is hard to find the time to get on the phone versus starting a ticket online or via email.

Athena is a very user friendly EMR system. Easy to navigate, schedule and input information. New update did make reviewing appointment histories more complicated.

Pros

Ease of use.

Absolutely hate everything about Streamline. Risk to patients; Classic is SO MUCH BETTER.

Lost a lot of functionality with Streamline. Unable to choose lab of choice or change way to submit an Rx during encounter. Miss quickpicks. Unable to save multiple labs for frequent tests that use different labs. Please ATHENA go back to Classic. It just needed a few more "jump to" tabs was all.

Pros

Allows to quickly see what an actual encounter will look like at the end after completing the various templates.

Cons

99%. It is a mess. Limited monitor "real estate"; really, medications and prescriptions are a large part of an encounter and with Streamline you get a small box to scroll in for meds. Classic had access to the entire monitor for meds. Unable to create QuickPicks or easily switch between different lab companies if needed.

Advice to Others

IF you can get ATHENA Classic view do so; it is VERY good. It has its issues (document management is an issue) however STreamline is beyond horrible. Very odd that as an UPGRADE it is worse than its predecessor. It is possible to sell your cadillac and buy a bicycle instead I presume. This is what it feels like.

The new streamlined is absolutely awful. It is beyond time consuming and not functional whatsoever. I absolutely hate it. We have a very large practice that has been using Athena for over 6 years. The entire practice HATES STREAMLINED!!!!

Pros

Nothing!!!! It is awful

Cons

Everything. It is time consuming and not functional

I like the flow sheets that I can review multiple measures including a variety of labs, over a period of time. Also can see pertinent medications, variety of labs.

Pros

Being to configure your own facesheet., current flow sheets

Cons

Reporting issues that can't have dates set. Streamline can show labs, but you would have to build flowsheets. Some of the features of the flow sheets have been separated, when having them together was a pro

Advice to Others

I would add more filters to the quality management reporting. Being able to set dates for a specific time. I would like some features of the population health for care management, and reporting

As a sonographer it is my job to receive the order, complete the exam, state what exams where done and let the physician know the exam is completed and waiting for the final interpretation. The majority of my orders are not seen right there on the intake page or they don't have the proper indication and I have to generate the order myself in order for billing to take place. There are way to many steps for me at the end of my exam and it shouldn't take more than a minute to complete.

at first it was difficult to understand but with time it gets easier I love how easy it is to find the lab work and to find the referrals and also the best part is when patients need prescriptions refilled

Pros

what I love the most is how quick it is to find what I need in terms of labs referrals

Cons

it sometimes can be slow

Advice to Others

not at the moment
