A promising metric, supported by research

The athenahealth research team surveyed more than 1,000 providers on our network, asking whether they agree with the two statements:

  • I have the latitude I need to provide high quality care to my patients
  • I have the tools/resources I need to properly care for my patients

Those who report having the tools and resources they need are more productive, more loyal to their organizations, and less likely to report symptoms of burnout. Capability also correlates with financial performance, based on productivity and growth metrics.

Do physicians in your organization have what they need?

Capability is not about your staff’s technical skill—it's about the systems you provide to support them. Integration of your systems is a key component to adequately empowering the best work of physicians in your organization. When systems can communicate easily—and serve up the right information at the right time—your providers can operate at the top of their license.

Without anything holding them back.
