Bridge Patient Portal Partners with X-Link for Improved Medical Software Interfacing

A leading portal for medical practices and hospitals, Bridge Patient Portal has partnered with X-Link Medical Software Interfacing to offer improved interoperability with EMR and other medical software vendors.

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading healthcare portal software Bridge Patient Portal is announcing a partnership with the X-Link Solutions Network to improve Bridge's access to the X-Link compatible EMR/EHR systems databases and to help the portal interface even more seamlessly with them.

The X-Link family of products allows for easy data sharing between a wide range of medical software packages - including electronic medical record systems, practice management systems, appointment reminder software, laboratory and PACS Imaging systems, prescription systems, and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs). X-Link offers real-time interfacing between these systems and provides the needed data translations to allow for any type of data, format and data transport method to work seamlessly between systems. This means that users of EMR's and patient portals licensed by different companies can interface the two systems and achieve Meaningful Use and HIPAA compliance. With the rise of cloud platforms, explosion of data and new avenues for information both in the online and mobile worlds, the role of systems integration is becoming increasingly critical. X-Link provides the integration means to tap into these multi-platform and multi-application software solutions while remaining advocates for leveraging existing medical technology solutions.

Though Bridge Patient Portal is HL7 compliant on its own and interfaces seamlessly with any EMR, the partnership with X-Link gives Bridge immediate access to direct database interfaces – improving mapping, making the interfacing and implementation process faster for the customer, and avoiding many of the problems that can arise from custom interfaces. "Interoperability is what will define healthcare IT in the years to come," says John Deutsch, founder and CEO of Bridge's parent company Medical Web Experts. "Our partnership with X-Link is demonstrative of our goal to support interfaces with all the major EMR and Practice Management systems in the market."

Bridge Patient Portal is certified by the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) for 2014, signifying its HIPAA compliance and support for portable medical record document technologies like the Continuity of Care Document or CCD. When used with a certified EMR, Bridge can help healthcare professional meet 100% of Meaningful Use Stage 1 and 2 criteria. Bridge is also well-suited for practices and hospitals of any size, is completely customizable, and has a complete range of features. This includes appointment requests, e-consultations, prescription refills, online bill pay, medical records collaboration, and others that help improve patient engagement. As a web-based cloud application that is extremely user-friendly and easy to implement, many practices are choosing to step outside of their EMR provider for a portal to help them qualify for federal incentives under Meaningful Use.

Through their new partnership with X-Link, Bridge can now interface quickly and efficiently with over 170 electronic medical record systems and 136 practice management systems – including:

  • eClinicalWorks
  • Allscripts EMR
  • Amazing Charts
  • AllMeds
  • Praxis
  • NexGen
  • SOAPware EMR by DOCS
