Bridge is a technology company that offers a superior patient portal experience for healthcare organizations and their patients. As a leading patient portal vendor, we’re dedicated to changing the provider-patient relationship through software and professional services that help providers engage their patients online.
We are committed to both selling great software, and to assisting providers in their patient engagement efforts. This is evident in the product we provide, the services we deliver, and the active role we take in helping providers increase patient portal usage.
Bridge’s vision is to be the single patient portal vendor and patient engagement solution trusted by healthcare’s most innovative organizations.
Our mission is to help healthcare organizations deeply engage their patient population by aligning next generation patient engagement tools with modern user experience.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Bridge was a product incubated in Medical Web Experts – a web development company that’s been working with top university health systems and hospitals since 2003. Born out of their clients’ necessity for a secure, HIPAA-compliant patient login portal, Bridge grew quickly as a leading patient portal vendor and became its own company in 2012. Bridge is a self-funded project, and an employee-owned company.
We undergo annual third-party HIPAA software and legal audits, in addition to oversight from our on-staff dedicated compliance officer.
With a long history in electronic health record software, mobile app development, and web development, our extensive experience enables us to deliver advanced solutions to today’s most complex patient portal implementations – including connecting disparate EHR environments with a single, EHR-agnostic platform.
