"Epion Health delivers a powerful tool for health care systems and providers," said Joe Blewitt, Epion's CEO. "As an emerging company in the health care IT space, it's important to be open to partnerships with clear win-win opportunities. athenahealth's MDP program is successful because they choose these partnerships very carefully and follow through with an incredible support team to execute on their commitments. In the end, athenahealth clients and, in turn, their patients are the biggest winners. By leveraging the Epion solution, users of the athenaNet® network can access an integrated digital check-in system that provides a valuable patient engagement platform and can significantly reduce patient registration paperwork and increase payment collections.
