WATERTOWN, Mass. & NEW ORLEANS -- February 27, 2013

athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based
electronic health record (EHR), practice management, and care coordination
services to medical groups and health systems, next week heads to HIMSS13, the
largest annual health care IT and management conference, being held in New

itself on topics associated with Meaningful Use, interoperability, analytics,
population health management, ICD-10, and more. Committed to helping providers
thrive in the face of industry change and pressure, athenahealth will issue
news leading up to and from HIMSS13, including unveiling a new cloud-based
service and rallying other HIT vendors and the industry for ongoing disruption
and improvement.

“We’re looking forward to another turn at HIMSS, because we love technology,
but only if it’s moving quickly past staid, broken processes in health care.
Our mission at athenahealth is to be caregivers’ most trusted service, helping
them do well by doing the right thing, and we don’t get paid unless our
clients do—period,” said Jonathan Bush, Chairman and CEO of athenahealth.
“Because we have skin in the game, we aim to deliver services that are
future-proof. In other words, our services scale based on need, can be managed
without heavy IT support and cost, and most importantly, are flexible to
adjust to new challenges ensuring they improve with time and will not become
obsolete.”
