Athenahealth launches daily news, data hub on healthcare

Athenahealth launched athenaInsight, a daily news and data hub focusing on healthcare in the United States. athenaInsight offers a look into successful health systems' practices, public health trends and ways to grow physician leadership and engagement.

The news hub draws upon the activity and trends of more than 80,000 healthcare providers and 81 million de-identified patients on the athenahealth network. As part of the launch, athenaInsight investigated opioid prescribing trends on a national scale.

"Healthcare suffers from a critical lack of cross-continuum information and knowledge sharing," said Jonathan Bush, CEO of athenahealth, in a statement. "With athenaInsight, we're working to address this by putting our network — one of the largest data sets in the healthcare industry — to work. We are uniquely positioned to leverage our network data and zero-in on healthcare's bright spots, the corners of healthcare where innovation is yielding results. We do this with our clients every day, but now with athenaInsight, we'll share what we see, what we know, and what we learn with a much broader audience."
