Illinois-based Fox Valley Orthopedics has chosen AthenaOne as its official electronic health record provider, handling medical billing and patient engagement.
Fox Valley serves patients with 35 providers in seven locations in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.
AthenaOne will replace three systems currently in use across Fox's locations, uniformly connecting providers, surgeons and physical therapists. The new EHR will allow for faster and more efficient collaboration, and it will make it easier for patients to make appointments, pay bills and access health records online.
Fox Valley will join 150,000 other providers, including thousands of orthopedic surgeons, currently using the Athena network.
"By enabling all our clinicians to share a single, comprehensive chart on each patient, and delivering a patient-centered experience, we will accomplish this mission more effectively. Additionally, athenahealth offers us the scalability and expertise we need as we continue to add more physicians and expand our service offerings in 2023 and beyond," Vishal Mehta, MD, president and managing partner at Fox Valley, said in a Jan. 9 Athenahealth press release.
