Bridge Care Services

A Behavioral Health Integration model backed by clinical and operational expertise to solve ambulatory care at scale and deliver long-term clinical and financial outcomes for hospitals and health systems.

Expanding access for those who need it most

The Challenge

Between provider shortages, increased demand for mental health care, and social determinants of health, helping patients get the right care, integrated care at the right time isn’t always easy.

Our Solution

Bridge Care Services leverages a cross-functional integrated care team of therapists, psychiatrists, and nurse practitioners to ensure the patients who need care first get care first – while being efficiently directed to an appropriate care plan. This program fully integrates into your health system to deliver a seamless experience for your care team and help achieve measurement-based outcomes for your organization.

How it works

Bridge Care Services ensures patients who need help first, gets seen first. Patients receive the appropriate care plan for their needs and are supported throughout their transition to the next setting in their journey.

Connecting patients to high-quality, behavioral health care

Bridge Care Services provides a transformative process for health systems, their teams, and the patients they serve.
