No more paper

The pain of the handwritten record is removed. K2 Athena is the FIRST ever end-to-end Maternity Information System to provide a completely paperless Electronic Maternity Health Record (EHR/EMHR). Athena collects all notes from the entire pregnancy pathway electronically and can therefore provide all patient information to healthcare professionals effortlessly at just the touch of a button.

Captured once

Maternity clinical data is captured once, and once only; contemporaneously at the point of care during the patient interaction, even in emergency situations. There is no need to rely on retrospective entry away from the patient. Athena Maternity System facilitates patient consultation, captures interaction, enhances clinical oversight and communication, helping multi-disciplinary teams plan future care.

Seamless data

Developed entirely by K2 Medical Systems, Athena uses a single database and, by linking seamlessly with medical device equipment and interfacing with other hospital systems, provides accessible data and facilitates contemporaneous workflow. There are no gaps in the data and no internal interfacing is required. An obstetric risk management system, offering a complete solution to patient data capture, Governance and learning.


Invaluable for data capture, efficient auditing, freeing resource and improving patient safety, Athena is fully customisable to local requirements. Facilitating full compliance with Maternity Services Dataset (MSDS), Governance, management of care and the appropriate reimbursement for the services they provide, via Payment by Results (PbR) and Maternity Payment Tariffs, K2 Athena is the complete solution.

  • Enhanced clinical oversight and knowledge sharing allows for a multi-disciplinary approach to care.
  • Collected once, visible everywhere. Athena saves time and money by removing the need for duplication.
  • Risks and referrals are automatically triggered, ensuring consistently high levels of care are provided.
  • Powerful reporting capability ensures auditing is streamlined, accurate and efficient.
  • Standardised data entry offers compliance with National Maternity Data Sets and Schemes.

Remote Connectivity

All clinical records can be exported and synchronised upon re-entry into the hospital network, or offline records created and merged seamlessly with the master record, facilitating efficient community working.

In addition, Athena provides enhanced oversight by allowing clinicians to view all notes and fetal monitoring data remotely, via a secure internet connection, from anywhere in the world.

Women are now empowered to view their handheld maternity notes online. The provision of Athena’s Electronic Personal Health Record (ePHR), ensures data can be accessed instantly, or granted to other healthcare professionals.

Reporting and Auditing

K2 have developed an impressive report generating engine. Any report can be constructed for:

  • Audit
  • Governance
  • Process Improvements
  • Clinical Research
  • Management Control
