Bridge Patient Portal offers three flexible deployment options with affordable pricing to help you achieve success - both in terms of meaningful use attestation and realizing an ROI from efficiency savings and improved patient experiences.
Our patient portal can be deployed on Bridge servers as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application, as an SaaS application with our Pay-Per-Engaged-Patient (PPEP) pricing, or on the server of your choosing under our Client/Server model. Our revolutionary PPEP pricing model aligns Bridge with your healthcare organization to ensure your success. While most of our customers select the PPEP model, many deployments require the enhanced flexibility and fixed pricing of the Client/Server model.

Starting at just $5/month

Highly flexible, advanced customization option for client-managed hosting environment. Higher upfront cost, lower long term cost. Support, maintenance, hosting & marketing are optional add-ons.

The Bridge Patient Portal Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) with Pay-Per-Engaged-Patient (PPEP) deployment gives our clients the LOWEST cost of entry in the business, starting at just $5 per month with NO setup fee. Our SaaS w/ PPEP deployments are priced on a per-patient basis, meaning you'll only pay for patients that meaningfully use the system. An engaged patient is defined as a patient that performs an action in the system during a 6-month period. Bridge's PPEP deployment also includes our expert marketing services to help you engage your patient population.
As a healthcare organization you only achieve success with your patient portal when your patients use it in a meaningful way - both in terms of meaningful use attestation and realizing an ROI from efficiency savings and improved patient experiences. The problem with our competitors' pricing models is that you pay for all the patients that don't use it too. The software vendor has no incentive to increase usage and leaves the consumer to find ways to engage their patient population. Patient engagement is an art that requires an experienced marketing team with a strong background in HIPAA law, interface technologies and healthcare. Your success is our success, and with new performance payment models being introduced, you need a partner to help you maximize engagement across your patient population.

Interfaces allow providers to provide medical record information with their patients quickly and efficiently. Bridge Patient Portal can be fully interfaced with any EHR system, practice management software or lab. We work with Health Level Seven (HL7), Continuity of Care Document (CCD) and Direct Project standards to develop secure uni-directional and bi-directional interfaces. Uni-directional interfaces allow data to flow one way, while bi-directional interfaces allow data to flow both ways. Interface setup pricing for our SaaS w/ PPEP, SaaS and Client/Server deployment models is different. We work with you to determine the best option for your organization.
Please call us for pricing. It usually doesn't cost much more, but given the potential complexity we prefer to provide you with a custom quote.
