Modern Healthcare

Athenahealth, thanks to its planned purchase of RazorInsights, can bring a new electronic health-record business model to the small-hospital segment just as that sector is searching for alternatives to current vendor offerings, say health IT market watchers.“If Athena comes in with a revenue model that doesn’t require a lot of capital outlays, and Athena makes it easy for them financially and their vendors don’t use the time to catch up, there is a huge opportunity,” said Colin Buckley, director of research strategy for clinical IT systems at Orem, Utah-based KLAS Enterprises.
