Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Cook Children’s combines a nationally recognized medical center, with more than 35 pediatric physicians offices, hundreds of employed providers, plus home health and more. When Ryan wanted to improve children’s health in Texas—quickly and at a relatively low cost compared to many EMR solutions—he turned to athenahealth and Microsoft Healthvault. In this case study Ryan, with Ed Park, athenahealth’s tech guru (and yes, Todd’s brother), will tell us how moving to a SaaS-based platform has changed the way physicians practice at Cook, and how next they’re going to be making care more accessible to kids everywhere.
Health 2.0 is not just about technology.

What results have they shown and how have those partnerships begun to reform care delivery?
