Welcome to our New Interfaces Portal!

Interfaces support efficient workflows

Healthcare organizations gather patient information from a variety of sources: EMRs, labs, imaging, referring physicians, etc. When athenahealth clients want to exchange information with an external source (laboratory information system, clinics, hospitals, public health organizations, 3rd party apps, etc.) through athenaNet®, they require an interface. Interfacing allows athenahealth clients to safely share information across operations. Because interfaces send information electronically (rather than by fax or paper files), it’s faster and easier for everyone involved to: 

  • Exchange data in real time
  • Decrease the amount of paper documents
  • Reduce administrative work
  • Drive efficiency throughout the process 


Take advantage of our interfaces that allow athenahealth clients, clinics, and hospitals to integrate seamlessly.
