The Bridge Technology

The Bridge framework is built on a multi-tier, distributed services oriented architecture. The layered architecture includes the following key layers:

Users  
-   Bridge verifies and validates user credentials to allow access. Users include Patients, Providers, Program Administrators, Care managers, Ancillaries, Health Plans and others. The services are unified and the access is centralized.

Multi - Channel Digital Omnivore  
-  the device layer within the Bridge framework allows for content and app consumption across various devices such as PCs, tablets, smart phones and other smart devices.

Functional Blocks   
-  The various functional blocks deliver expected program outcomes. These blocks house various components categorized as Care Coordination, Care Management, Patient / Clinician Engagement, Financial Management, Population Management, Reports and Analytics.

Reusable Appliances   
-  The framework supports various software components that are designed to be reusable across the functional blocks resulting minimum code redundancy and improved workflow orchestration.

Cloud - Based Data Warehouse   
-  The Bridge data warehouse houses all the data repositories. The data is stored in multiple formats with the meta data defined in XML. All the data access is web services enabled for secure communications with external systems. Data is encrypted during storage and in transit and is fully HIPAA compliant.

The key benefits of this framework are:

  • Portable, device independent, multi-channel access to data
  • Secure HIPAA compliant anytime, anywhere access
  • A neutral, third party agnostic approach to data sharing and interactions with external systems
  • Scalable, extensible architecture that runs on a cloud infrastructure
