The End-to-End Patient Scheduling, Registration, Check-In and Patient Portal Solution
Managing the patient intake / check-in process is labor intensive and often frustrating for patients. While there are many patient intake / check-in solutions on the market, few offer this functionality at the depth that Bridge does. Bridge views the patient intake / check-in process as part of a greater appointment process. We believe that the intake process begins at the time of making the appointment, continues through the pre-appointment reminders, and leads right up to the appointment itself. Just like the process of getting a flight—choosing, purchasing, filling in the required information, and checking in—the patient intake / check-in process can be done just as easily online. As one single process, patients don’t need to answer the same questions more than once and are more likely to complete the entire process—thus avoiding unnecessary frustration.
No need for costly kiosks and tablets sold by the patient intake software vendor. Bridge is supported on any device with a web browser. Purchase your own tablets, kiosks or desktops. You can also allow patients to complete the check-in process on their own mobile phone—generally considered the preferred option by patients.
