AthenaHealth, a Boston-based company that is known for its shockingly-decent electronic health record, has acquired a startup called Arsenal Health, which helps doctors better manage their crazy schedules.
Arsenal Health has developed a machine-learning technology that works with doctors to predict their likely no-shows and cancellations. That helps doctors avoid those pesky gaps in the day, and it opens up new windows for patients to book last-minute appointments. The company claims its doctors make an additional $700 per-month on average. In true startup fashion, the founding team met at an MIT hackathon.
This is AthenaHealth’s first acquisition of a startup in its accelerator program, called More Disruption Please. The companies declined to disclose the terms of the transaction.
