In 1997, Jonathan Bush co-founded athenahealth as a women's health practice management company. Today, through its national network, athenaNet®, athenahealth has emerged as one of the largest and fastest growing providers of on-demand billing, practice management and electronic health record services to medical groups in the United States, but the vision is the same: bring process integrity to the delivery of health care.
Before athenahealth, Bush was an EMT for the City of New Orleans, a combat medic in the U.S Army, and a managed care strategy consultant for Booz-Allen & Hamilton.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Wesleyan University and a master's degree with distinction in business administration from the Harvard Business School. He is currently a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations, trustee of the Farm School, and father of five children.
