WATERTOWN, Mass., April 7, 2021 —  athenahealth, a leading provider of network-enabled software and services for medical groups and health systems nationwide, announced today its partnership success with MDS Medical, a management services organization (MSO) based in Phoenix, Ariz.

Together, MDS Medical and athenahealth have seen great partnership success with 25 new customers and growing momentum from other practices.

“With MDS and athenahealth as our partners we were confident this move would benefit both our practice and patients,” said Dr. Bryan Jick M.D., F.A.C.O.G. “Our decision to switch to athenahealth was based on many factors; athenahealth is a stable and successful EHR organization with over 22 years in business and thousands of Ob/Gyn users. And, knowing that MDS would partner with us for our entire journey to athenahealth was a major deciding factor. MDS has continued to impress me with the quality of their staff and their commitment to our success.”
