DESCRIPTION OF SITE
Through the Site, Bridgedcare offers information on physicians, healthcare providers, healthcare facilities and specialty hospitals (collectively, the “Healthcare Providers”). Bridgedcare organizes information to help you independently assess particular Healthcare Providers. To enable such assessment, Bridgedcare may include profiles and materials and other details about the Healthcare Providers. The information is compiled from a variety of sources, including your health plan, publicly available records, and third-party providers, then processed using various proprietary algorithms and processes, and finally arranged in a simple-to-use and easy-to-view format. Depending on the search criteria used by you when performing a search for a Healthcare Provider on the Site, the Healthcare Providers may be sorted based on a variety of factors.
