How does a refill request go back into the source EHR system?

A prescription refill request goes back into the source system via a message, typically sent to the inbox in the EHR. However, other workflows could also be supported, such as routing the refill request to a tasking queue in the EHR or in Bridge’s tasking module.

Can I host the application on my own server?

Yes. Bridge can be hosted on a healthcare organization’s server or on one of Bridge’s, depending on the healthcare organization’s preference. Other options for hosting include:

Client Server: This option allows a healthcare organization to host the Bridge software on their own server or on a dedicated joint-managed Bridge server. Bridge requires access to this server for product update services, and the server must meet the company’s technical requirements. Server technical maintenance incurs an additional cost.

Dedicated Bridge Server: A healthcare organization can be hosted on a dedicated server but does not have the resources to maintain one, Bridge can provide joint-managed dedicated hosting with Google Cloud Platform.

For additional information about self-hosted environments, please contact a Bridge representative.

How can I initially populate the portal with my EHR/PM software data?

Bridge helps transfer data from the existing portal, EHR, or PM software. Before importing data, patients need to have portal accounts. The easiest way to create a large number of accounts is by using a CSV file or an interface to the EHR/PM system. Once accounts are created, Bridge can import Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) from the EHR or PM software using a common directory on the local server. Bridge can also pull information about appointments, documents, invoices, and more from the source system. Bridge’s system can also automatically create providers. Bridge’s expert team will guide healthcare organizations through the entire migration and go-live process.
