SEATTLE, December 20, 2021 (Newswire.com) - MedBridge has won bronze in the Most Innovative Product of the Year in the Healthcare category of the Best in Biz Awards, an independent business awards program judged by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.
MedBridge's winning entry highlighted their Telehealth Virtual Visits and Multiple Episodes of Care innovations, which were developed to help healthcare organizations increase access, improve engagement, and streamline pathways of care.
Virtual Visits has enabled healthcare providers to continue caring for patients in the comfort and safety of their own home during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing significant cost savings while maintaining quality of care and engagement. One client was able to develop a fully virtual clinic, reducing in-person visits by an average of one across all episodes, decreasing costs per episode of care by 47%, and improving functional outcomes by 25%.
Multiple Episodes of Care simplifies coordination between settings or care teams for patients with complex care plans by enabling stratification of each distinct episode of care. This increases the efficiency of building customized Home Exercise Programs by enabling episode segmentation, easing care coordination, and improving the patient experience by organizing concurrent care plans.
These award-winning innovations are part of the complete Patient Engagement solution that has helped thousands of organizations provide higher quality care to millions of patients.
"The COVID-19 pandemic and changing regulations have expedited the need for high-quality virtual care solutions, and we're committed to developing new innovations that will help our partners adapt to the continuing evolution of the healthcare industry and further improve the lives of their patients," said Justin Kowalchuk, CEO and Founder of MedBridge. "We're both humbled and grateful to receive this award, and our team is hard at work on our next innovative solution that will help healthcare organizations enhance patient care."
Founded in 2011, MedBridge is an innovator at the intersection of healthcare technology, education, and patient engagement. We have helped more than 2,500 healthcare organizations grow their business, elevate their workforce, and deliver exceptional patient experiences.
