Interview with Ed Park

We talked with Ed Park, Executive VP and COO at Athena Health, about the biggest challenges, trends and developments in health care technology at the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall Conference.

Case Study from Cook Children’s Physician Network and AthenaHealth

Ryan Champlin, VP Operations, Cook Children’s Physician Network, with Ed Park, CTO, AthenaHealth

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Cook Children’s combines a nationally recognized medical center, with more than 35 pediatric physicians offices, hundreds of employed providers, plus home health and more. When Ryan wanted to improve children’s health in Texas—quickly and at a relatively low cost compared to many EMR solutions—he turned to athenahealth and Microsoft Healthvault. In this case study Ryan, with Ed Park, athenahealth’s tech guru (and yes, Todd’s brother), will tell us how moving to a SaaS-based platform has changed the way physicians practice at Cook, and how next they’re going to be making care more accessible to kids everywhere.

AthenaHealth – Meaningful Use

Ed Park, Executive Vice President & COO, Athenahealth
Ed Park is the technical genius behind the company with the biggest mouth in health IT as its leader. This year Ed’s shows us something slightly different–Athenahealth has scored all its practices on their “meaningful use”. This demo was part of “The Next Generation of Health 2.0 in the Doctor’s Office” panel at the 2011 Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco.

The Next Generation of Health 2.0 in the Doctor’s Office

SaaS and cloud-based medical record products and services are heading aggressively for physician offices. In parallel, the race for meaningful use dollars is on and legacy enterprise vendors are competing with startups offering more modular, lightweight tools across a variety of unplatforms. So who’s going to win in the race to getting EMRs to the 70% of American practices that don’t have them? And what services are needed – is software even enough?
