In a statement released on March 13, 2023, The Garage declared its intention to expand the reach of its population health management platform, Bridge, to independent hospitals and health systems. This initiative aims to facilitate the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care and tackle the challenges prevalent in the healthcare sector. It primarily supports small to midsize hospitals, health systems, affiliated practices, and clinicians.
The Garage is set to implement its digital-first and data-first approach, enabling these organizations to enhance care quality, efficiency, and the patient experience, ultimately leading to shared savings. By leveraging Bridge's capabilities, health systems and hospitals will be able to improve their ability to deliver value-based care and achieve better health outcomes for patients.
With the Bridge platform suite of adaptable applications for utilization management, risk network management, referral and leakage control, and more patient engagement, healthcare systems and community providers can implement a value-based care strategy in different dynamic care settings.
Bridge, the industry's prominent population health management platform, is EHR-agnostic, allowing it to integrate seamlessly with any electronic health record system. It aggregates and normalizes payer, clinical, health information exchange (HIE), social determinants of health (SDOH), and other data available for customers, providing a unified view accessible by any user. With Bridge, customers can dynamically filter data based on regions, payers, and other lines of business.
Joe Taylor, Executive Director of Community Care Collaborative of PA/NJ, stated, "Value-based care is a transformative change for our Industry." He added, "Our continued partnership with the Garage allows us to deploy technology that reduces the friction in coordinating care, improves quality and efficiency which benefits our patients and communities."

Bridge's inbuilt network management capabilities enable healthcare facilities to retrieve patient information from other institutions. When it comes to patient management, Bridge provides comprehensive services that accommodate both real-time and asynchronous interactions. By doing so, fewer trips to the doctor will be required.
