Update issue

Ever since the new version updated- I (and many physicians that use this app) can not sign back into or reload new messages in Athena text. This app is a very useful tool for my company, but the continuous issues to reload or open, causes communication breakdown. Please look into what the issue may be with the new update. My colleagues and I find this app a great addition to the practice workflow when it is functioning correctly.

Update Issue

I read the other physician review and completely agree. It is an awesome app and efficient communication tool when working properly. I can still be on the go and handle many different office issues and answer questions about patient care. When it is not working it creates huge challenges to work flow. It has been having connection issues ever since the last update or the last update with the iPhone. They both occurred around the same time. Prior to that it kept crashing and the Face ID was not working properly. I’d much rather it be working, the Face ID is not as important but a nice perk. When it is not working at all though, it affects work flow, patient satisfaction and overall business. I look forward to a fix quickly. It will be greatly appreciated. When the program is working well it is a 5 except that the refresh feature for new messages has always been delayed and many times I would have to log out/close the program and go back in for new messages to appear even though it alerted me to a new message. Please get a fix quickly!

Never able to log in

For the past 3 weeks I have been having trouble logging in. It started with it not being able to synchronize so I deleted the app, and re-downloaded the app. Ever since then I have not been able to log back in. At first it was not a big deal, I was at work and could take care of them. But this week I’m off on vacation and now I can delete them from day to day, so when I get back I will have to delete each one individually and there are going to be about 1000 of them. There is also no mass delete on the website for the text! Please fix! My company have been a major user for Athena for over 15 years!
