Cloud-based health IT vendor athenahealth is partnering with the University of Toledo Medical Center to develop an electronic health record (EHR) for providers who cross ambulatory and hospital care settings, expanding its reach into the acute care hospital market.

The University of Toledo Physician Group has been an athenahealth client since 2014.

Last year, athenahealth announced the extension of its services into the acute care setting with the acquisitions of RazorInsights, a small hospital vendor, and webOMR, the web-based clinical applications and EHR platform developed by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. In an announcement, athenahealth said it will convert the technology acquired in these transactions into a comprehensive, cloud-based service within athenaNet for hospitals of all sizes and complexities. The new service, athenaClinicals for Hospitals & Health Systems, will be an extension of the company’s existing EHR, athenaClinicals.

“athenahealth and the University of Toledo both believe that health care delivery must transform to improve value for patients while providing a first-class provider experience,” Jonathan Bush, CEO, athenahealth, said in a statement.  “athenahealth is excited to extend our service relationship with the University of Toledo into the realm of development, and work together to build a disruptive alternative to legacy health IT solutions that supports health care providers along the entire continuum of care.”

“Working with athenahealth to develop athenaClinicals for Hospitals & Health Systems is an excellent opportunity to position our providers already using athenaNet to impact transitions of care across UTMC’s ecosystem.  We are embracing this opportunity to fully implement the cloud across our inpatient and outpatient environments,” David Morlock, CEO, University of Toledo Medical Center, said.
