The Garage Leads the Population Health Management Industry with Bridge

Cloud-based coordinated care software platform reaches 2,000,000 patients milestone

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Garage announced that their Population Health Management Platform, Bridge, crossed a key milestone last week when they signed contracts with two more large healthcare groups, a 450 physician member IPA and PCT-MSO, both managed in Maitland, Florida. “Now, with more than 2,500 physicians and 2 million patient lives on track to be managed on Bridge, we are humbled and proud to have the nation’s most innovative, leading population health management platform,” said Pranam Ben, Founder and CEO of The Garage.

“We were looking for a platform that could deliver true clinical integration for our IPA. We found that and more in Bridge. It is hands down the best platform out there and we are excited about partnering with the Garage as we build our network across the state”

The Garage works with Accountable Care Organizations, Managed Service Organizations (MSOs), Independent Physician Associations (IPAs), and a number of other value based integrated delivery networks to coordinate care for patients since 2012. “One challenge with our technology needs is that we have several programs that we run for our Physician groups. We needed a platform that could scale as we grow and be agile enough to solve all of our different program needs. I found that platform in Bridge and their team has been awesome to work with,” said Sid Morgan, CEO, Primary Care Alliance.

With disjointed providers and disparate data sets, healthcare organizations cannot understand a patient's full spectrum of health. This situation makes clinical integration and continuous care impossible. The results, in the current healthcare environment, are unchecked chronic conditions and repeat emergency department admissions, which are expensive to the system and the patient. “We were looking for a platform that could deliver true clinical integration for our IPA. We found that and more in Bridge. It is hands down the best platform out there and we are excited about partnering with the Garage as we build our network across the state,” stated Alberto Cobian, President, Clinical Alliance Network.

“We have known Garage and the entire team since day one. We have a long-standing partnership. They continue to develop great technology as we see with Bridge and provide key insights to all the ACOs, IPAs and MSOs we manage. Working with them has helped us meet our goals to improve quality of care and lower costs,” said Larry Jones, CEO, HPOF Holdings.

Bridge allows providers to manage a population's health by focusing on at risk patients who generate the majority of health costs, and systematically addresses the preventive and chronic care needs of each patient. Bridge also allows organizations to better assess and understand population needs by providing key actionable insights.
