Watertown’s athenahealth Inc. soared after the company struck a deal with Clinical Holdings Corp., a physicians services business of Ascension Health Alliance, to provide the health care system with its Internet-based software for physicians. The deal represents a “huge enterprise win” for athenahealth and boosts its 2014 growth outlook, said William Blair’s Ryan Daniels in a note. Clinical Holdings will use athenahealth’s cloud service with its 4,000 providers and affiliates, athenahealth said in documents filed with the SEC.
