Bridge Press Portal__announcing

Specifically designed for the pediatric specialty, Bridge Patient Portal connects, informs and engages patients and their doctors

Bridge Patient Portal (http://www.bridgepatientportal.com), a leading enterprise patient portal provider, today announced the launch of its pediatric suite of features. Designed to meet the specific needs of pediatric and primary care groups and their patients, Bridge Patient Portal is a highly customizable and easy to use platform which securely connects administrators, physicians and parents.

Bridge Patient Portal greatly improves efficiency by providing parents with a wealth of information about their child’s health and securely facilitates communication to their child’s providers.  The suite includes the following five unique features not found collectively in other systems — CDC immunization records, growth charts (BMI, Height, Weight), immunization physician-signed record printouts, care plans and multiple child support with easy toggling between children.

“We’ve been using a patient portal in our 17-provider, multi-location pediatric practice for more than three years with engagement levels exceeding twenty-five percent,” said George Rogu, MD of RBK Pediatrics in Long Island, NY.  “We recently switched to Bridge because Bridge does everything our old portal did, and more. The Bridge platform is truly unmatched in the industry.”

Modeled after recognizable social media applications, parents and adolescents using Bridge’s Pediatric Portal will find the interface familiar and clear to use. Most importantly, Bridge’s interface capabilities ensure that all the most pertinent information and features are made available to the patient and their authenticated caregivers.

“The pediatric specialty is unique in that it boasts the highest average patient engagement rates among all specialties,” said John Deutsch, CEO of Bridge Patient Portal. “However, for patient portals to be effective and valuable they must be easy to use, save patients and administrators time, provide access to important information and improve access to and communication with physicians. Pediatrics is the most challenging specialty from a features perspective as a result of its complex medical-record sharing requirements, and we have made a commitment to the pediatric specialty as our highest priority.”
