New higi partnership opens doors to patient data

By David Salazar - 12/04/2018
Population health enablement company higi has unveiled a partnership with Bridge connector, a company that offers streamlined integration solutions for healthcare organizations. The partnership, the companies said, will allow for integration between higi health stations using Health Connect and any electronic health record or hospital health system using Bridge connector.

“With over 52 million total users, higi is the leading health platform for engaging with consumers where they are. The power in our platform comes when we remove the friction between connecting the consumer with their trusted healthcare provider to allow the consumer to consent and share their data in real-time to enable additional touchpoints and timely interventions,” said higi CEO Jeff Bennett. “With Bridge Connector, we continue to make it easier for consumers to be their healthiest by making health care better connected.”

Bridge Connector and higi said that the collaboration opened the door for higi’s platform to connect with providers, payers, employers, retailers and others looking to manage patient data. Patients use higi’s roughly 11,000 health stations in retail locations close to a million times weekly, higi said.

“By partnering with higi, we are creating an ecosystem where consumers are finally being put at the center of their own care, enabling millions of patients — every year — to determine how their personal data flows,” said David Wenger, CEO and founder of Bridge Connector. “With easier access to their health information, they’re empowered to make more informed decisions, and this partnership furthers our vision for improving healthcare communication towards complete interoperability.”
