How Bridge is a Decision Intelligence Platform Driving Better Population Health Management for Value-Based-Care

By Maria Kordit, VP, Community Engagement, The Garage

In today's rapidly evolving needs of the healthcare industry, effective population health management is more vital than ever. With the healthcare industry grappling challenges such as rising costs, an aging population, and the ongoing impact of workforce shortages, it's clear that traditional fee-for-service approaches in healthcare delivery are no longer sufficient. Addressing health equity and increased disease burdens necessitates innovative approaches. Bridge, The Garage's population health management platform, introduces these innovative approaches to address these challenges, empowers our partners, and supports meaningful change.

Here are some key themes around how Bridge is leading Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Independent Practice Associations (IPAs), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs), Payors, and other organization types towards a successful path in value-based care.

  1. Comprehensive Data Integration:
    Bridge aggregates and normalizes data from disparate data sources, such as electronic health records, payer/claims data, local and national Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), wearable devices, social determinants data, and all other ancillary data sources. This robust process builds a holistic view of each patient's state of wellbeing.
  2. Advanced Analytics:
    Using industry leading machine learning and linear regression algorithms, Bridge identifies patterns, trends, risk factors, and population distribution, aiding in informed decision making.
  3. Reporting:
    Bridge delivers data and analytics in an intuitive and interactive interface with unified access to all care providers touching the patients' life. This enables users, whether they're a physician or manager of quality, to easily interpret complex information and identify key insights for appropriate action.
  4. Risk Analysis:
    Success in value-based care requires identifying high-risk patients who may benefit from targeted interventions. Bridge supports risk stratification and enables tailored approaches to identify individuals at risk of adverse health events.
  5. Decision Support Tools:
    Bridge provides point-of-care and streamlined care management applications that assist clinicians in make evidence-based decisions and optimizing care delivery.
  6. Enhanced Care Coordination:
    The GRID application within Bridge facilitates seamless collaboration and patient management across comprehensive care management teams, enabling everything from improved care transitions, condition assessments, to tracking of care plan initiatives and conducting SDOH screenings.
  7. Patient-Centric Collaboration and Communication:
    Patient engagement has and become a key focus in healthcare, and positive health outcomes have become a priority. Bridge's patient engagement tools such as Engage, Communication and Campaign Builder help foster a coordinated approach through the whole continuum of care.
  8. Scalability and Flexibility:
    Bridge is designed to adapt and evolve with the changing needs of various Alternative Payment Programs, and ever-changing policies, while catering to diverse organizational needs. This may involve modular design, interoperability with other systems, and the ability to customize workflows.
  9. Privacy and Security:
    Ensuring patient data privacy and security is a top priority with Bridge. With implemented robust privacy and security measures, patient health data is protected all while maintaining compliance with regulations such as HIPAA.
