DALLAS, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridge Patient Portal, an enterprise patient portal for health organizations, and MD EMR Systems, an electronic medical record solutions developer and certified development partner for GE, have established a partnership to build an interface between the Bridge Patient Portal product and the GE Centricity™ products, including Centricity Practice Solution (CPS), Centricity Business and Centricity EMR.
These new integrations will allow healthcare delivery networks using GE Centricity to bring a patient-centric and engaging portal to their patients, with seamless integration of data and functionalities between the portal and their EHR.
Bridge Patient Portal and MD EMR Systems' first project together was a custom integration for WESTMED Medical Group, when the companies collaborated to connect Bridge Patient Portal with GE Centricity Business and Centricity EMR for the client. Having gained experience with the WESTMED pilot, Bridge and MD EMR will now embark on standardizing the interface between Bridge Patient Portal and GE Centricity Business and EMR. Development has also begun on adapting this interface for use with GE CPS users.
The integration between the platforms supports bi-directional demographics, messaging, appointments, prescription refills and bill pay. Meanwhile, uni-directional features will include lab results, document uploads, Consolidated Clinical Document Architectures (CCDAs) and eye prescriptions. Bridge is using its own, fully-documented API with GE Centricity's HCO API, Qvera channels and various HL7-based messages. Going forward, the two companies look forward to providing this integrated solution to the Centricity user community.
John Deutsch, CEO at Bridge Patient Portal, expressed, "We found MD EMR's knowledge of the Centricity EMR products to be unique in the marketplace, and therefore selected MD EMR as our partner for Centricity EMR development. The development required to interface Bridge with Centricity for the WESTMED pilot was a massive undertaking. We're very pleased with the outcome and excited to grow further into the Centricity community."
Mike Duckworth, owner at MD EMR, said, "We are privileged to have aided in the integration process with Bridge Patient Portal and the GE EMR suite products."
