MedBridge Receives Award for Best Patient Portal at 4th Annual Awards Program

SEATTLE – May 20, 2020 – MedBridge, the industry-leading online education and patient engagement solution for healthcare professionals, has won the “Best Patient Portal” award in the fourth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards. MedTech Breakthrough announced that this year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

The MedBridge Patient Portal creates a bridge from in-person treatment to the home—improving patient engagement, adherence, and outcomes. Through the easy-to-use Patient Portal and native mobile app, patients can access customized, provider-created care pathways featuring video-based exercises and education. Additionally, reminders and push notifications motivate patients to become active partners in their care. Healthcare professionals can easily gain insights into program adherence and improve patient satisfaction with real time data, feedback, and surveys. With the newest addition of Telehealth Virtual Visits, organizations can now expand access to triage, assess, and treat patients virtually through the Patient Portal.

“MedBridge is passionately committed to our mission of improving patient lives, and our focus remains on helping our partners improve outcomes through a patient-centered approach to care,” says Justin Kowalchuk, Founder and CEO of MedBridge. “Our solution delivers a multifaceted and impactful platform for providers to foster connection, drive behavioral change, and improve the patient experience. We are honored to receive the MedTech Breakthrough Award for our Patient Portal. Providing exceptional digital care in a virtual environment is now more important than ever, and this award is a powerful testament to the success of the MedBridge team in delivering on that commitment.”

Digital care delivery is pivotal in the current healthcare landscape and has become indispensable for patients seeking reliable access to their healthcare providers. As telehealth rapidly transforms the healthcare industry, with exponential adoption in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, MedBridge provides a HIPAA-compliant Patient Portal that allows for secure communication between patients and their care providers.

“MedBridge is one of the largest producers of education and patient engagement resources in the U.S., and their Patient Portal is just one component of a powerful patient engagement platform that increases positive outcomes both in and out of the clinic,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Telehealth is at the forefront of the MedTech space—never more so than right now—and MedBridge truly ‘breaks through’ with their portfolio of patient engagement and telehealth solutions. We extend our sincere congratulations to MedBridge for their well-deserved 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award, and we look forward to continued innovation from them in the coming months and years.”
