UPDATE 2: Here’s the post I created based on the interview with Jonathan Bush.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, Google+ had a technical issue and we were unable to broadcast or record a video for this hangout. Turns out others have had this issue before even though we didn’t experience it in the tech check we did and the past 15 other times we’ve done it. I did do an interview with Jonathan Bush about the subject just the same and will create a post based on the interview shortly. We apologize for the issue.
What: A Google+ Video Hangout with Jonathan Bush discussing open versus closed EHR systems.

Jonathan Bush, CEO, Chairman, athenahealth
In 1997, Jonathan Bush co-founded athenahealth as a women’s health practice management company. Today, athenahealth has evolved into a leading provider of cloud-based business services to U.S. medical groups pursuing a vision of an information backbone that makes health care work as it should.
Athenahealth currently serves over 38,000 providers across its practice management, electronic health record (EHR), and care coordination services. The company is generating over $400 million in annual revenue and growing at approximately 30% each year. The Boston Business Journal recently recognized athenahealth as one of the top 20 ‘Best Places to Work’ and the company was ranked 4th in the Forbes Fast Tech 25, a list of America’s 25 fastest-growing tech companies.
Prior to founding athenahealth, Mr. Bush served as an EMT for the City of New Orleans, was trained as a medic in the U.S. Army, and worked as a management consultant with Booz Allen & Hamilton. Mr. Bush obtained a Bachelor of Arts in the College of Social Studies from Wesleyan University and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School.
