athenahealth Marketplace Class of 2013 Broadens Health Care IT and Efficiency
Capabilities; Shopping in Health Care Begins

From Mobile Payment Capture to Scheduling, the athenahealth Marketplace
Provides Innovative Products and Services Across Numerous HIT and Workflow
Efficiency Categories

WATERTOWN, Mass., Jan. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- athenahealth,
Inc.(Nasdaq:ATHN), a leading provider of cloud-based services for electronic
health record (EHR), practice management, and care coordination, today
announced the complete roster of the athenahealth Marketplace Class of 2013.
With 21 health care IT (HIT) and workflow efficiency companies' solutions now
available, the athenahealth Marketplace offers a shopping-like experience for
the users of athenahealth's cloud-based services, a growing national network
of more than 47,000 providers.

"There is tremendous demand amongst care providers to implement high-quality
technology and workflow solutions at competitive prices, but it is nearly
impossible for them to evaluate the countless solutions in the market," said
Kyle Armbrester, vice president of Business Development. "We identify and
connect value-add partners who can help the tens of thousands of providers who
are plugged into the athenahealth cloud network work smarter and better, and
we make integration into our cloud-based services seamless."

The athenahealth Marketplace is a one-stop shop for HIT and workflow
efficiency solutions that integrate directly into athenahealth's cloud-based
services. The athenahealth Marketplace simplifies the selection, or
"shopping," process and streamlines integration, and all offerings featured in
the athenahealth Marketplace help to optimize performance. For example,
workflow management company Entrada has reduced documentation time for
physicians, increasing efficiency during the physician-patient encounter,
meaning doctors can spend more time with the patient rather than spending time
documenting the visit. Another athenahealth Marketplace company, appointment
scheduling firm iTriage, has increased schedule density, filling up the empty
slots in a physician's calendar to make the most of days in the office.

The capabilities found in the athenahealth Marketplace have been built out
based on demand from the provider community, along with thoughtful problem
solving for which the provider community has not yet turned to technology.
