The health care experience is taxing and confusing for patients and their families. The complexity often leads to disengagement and poor adherence to the plan of care. The Bridge Model is designed to integrate into any health care system in order to address these issues.

Bridge uses social workers to provide transitional care services, and leverages psychotherapy techniques to increase patient activation and follow-through. This approach of addressing both medical and social issues leads to many positive outcomes, including significantly lower readmission rates and decreased stress for patients and family caregivers.
