athena’s House of Blues and Code of Conduct
Athenahealth once again kicked off the HIMSS annual conference and exhibition with a party Sunday, this time at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Jonathan Bush, CEO of athenahealth, spoke a little bit about the company’s proposed Health Information Technology (HIT) “Code of Conduct,” which is a set of standards for the industry. By signing onto the Code, vendors promise to their clients that they’ll uphold five principles. Today athenahealth launched an online portal to gather signatures from electronic health record companies and all others who want to show their support.
