A Patient Engagement Platform That Grows with Your Clinic, Hospital, or IDN
When we think of a platform, we think of foundation or something that one can build on. Bridge is exactly that, a patient engagement platform – a foundation from which you can engage your patients.
Providers of patient engagement in healthcare are rapidly accumulating multiple patient engagement solutions and have to piece them together. Examples of some of these systems include:
The problem is that these systems don’t talk to each other. What’s more, each system requires its own integration to source systems, such as Electronic Health Record (EHR), Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), and Practice Management (PM) systems. Therefore, when it comes to something as important as respecting a patient’s communication preferences—such as receiving SMS messages versus emails—the provider has to be manually updating their preferences in the patient’s profile in each system. This is time consuming and inefficient.

Bridge is uniquely positioned to deliver to healthcare organizations an exceptional patient engagement platform. After 8+ years of intense development, Bridge now finds itself in a unique position to capitalize on other vendors’ shortcomings and growing customer demand for patient engagement solutions.
What sets Bridge apart from our competitors:
- Utilization of the latest technologies, such as Angular, which allow for a single code base for web, iOS, and Android.

- Experience completing many projects. We enter a project with confidence and are comfortable setting budget limits, preventing budget overrun.
- Sole focus on medium-to-large-sized healthcare businesses.
- Advanced expertise in the healthcare regulatory landscape (i.e., HIPAA, ADA, CCPA). For example Bridge has undergone an Optum new vendor audit.
- Experts in healthcare interface technology (i.e., HL7, FHIR, CCD, Direct).
- Extensive experience in providing patient portals and apps, with in-depth knowledge of the age of majority law, acceptable management of proxy accounts, conditional presentation of sensitive information, and the complexities associated with parent/guardian/caregiver access.
As the healthcare industry grows in complexity, it’s crucial to have a partner to optimize communication and interoperability between systems. Through high R&D spending (50% of expenses) Bridge has been able to thrive in the ever-changing, disorganized healthcare market. Vendors are struggling to keep up with customer needs and have significantly higher operating costs, high customer acquisition costs, and obsolete software platforms.
