This app is used by my MD’s office for messages, bill pay, test results. It worked fine until 2 weeks ago and now I can no longer access any information including sending or retrieving previous messages, test results or upcoming appointments. The only thing I am able to access is the bill pay portion. I have contacted the MD’s office and was told it was an issue with the app/website and not something on their end. All of my devices, browsers etc are up to date, but I am unable to access any important information now. I have been unable to find any contact info for this app/website to try to troubleshoot the problem. Very frustrating that I am unable to access my information and no way to speak without the someone for technical support.

Developer Response,

Hello, we apologize for the inconvenience. It sounds like you’re referring to the desktop version of the Patient Portal as billing has not been rolled out to the athenaPatient app. Based on your description, your Patient Portal sounds like it is in billing-only mode, which would be set by your MD’s office. You will need to contact them and request that they disable this setting. – athenaPatient Team

Has some glitches

For instance.. when trying to fill out pre appointment check in. It keeps booting me out and I have to resign in. I’m really unable to put in my history/family history because every time I’m in the middle of it.. it does this. Also sometimes seeing any test results just isn’t possible. Last time my provider had to do something on her end so I could see them. Other platforms I’ve used have not had this issue. Not extremely user friendly.. and I’m pretty tech savvy.

Developer Response,

Hello Karen, thank you for your feedback. We will research the issue you’re seeing with self check-in and share it with our development teams to dig into. Your provider does have the option to publish your lab results instantly. We recommend discussing this with her to see if it would be possible for her to enable this setting. – athenaPatient Team
