higi, a provider of health station kiosks and Bridge Connector, which delivers streamlined integrations for healthcare, today announced an integration partnership to allow for seamless integration between higi health stations to manage patient data. The integration with Bridge Connector will enable connectivity of the higi platform with providers, payers, employers, retailers and others looking to connect with and manage their patient data with real-time risk identification for care intervention and ongoing preventative programs.
higi health stations are currently in 11,000 retail locations, community hubs, and other points-of-care across the country and are instrumental in providing real-time biometric and health data nearly 1 million times per week. With the partnership, Bridge Connector can remove the time and cost barrier of limited IT resources within healthcare organizations in a secure way that is used by their trusted healthcare provider. This data integration creates a win-win for both consumers and their healthcare professionals.
“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 healthcare better connected.”
Bringing Easier Access to Patient Data
“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.”
