  1. This is the second CFO to leave Athenahealth in only 14 months. The last one, Kristi Matus, left in May 2016. And this past December they lost COO Ed Park.

  2. Obviously internal discord within the executive team. I’m sure that a CFO is not all that keen with Bush’s dreams of a real estate empire. Those things tend to divert attention away from the core business. And, Athena Health is only as good as the next software update.
