    "MedBridge Healthcare provided customized support based on the needs of my sleep-focused research study. They worked with me every step of the way to ensure participants received their home sleep tests and understood their rights as a participant. When my research protocol changed due to COVID, MedBridge Healthcare quickly adjusted to the needs of my study participants and provided outstanding customer support; both to me and the participants in my study."

    "MedBridge Healthcare services was the solution to what seemed an insurmountable problem: The COVID lockdown had all but shut-down procedure based clinical research (research that required one or more in person visits). In our case, we found ways to go virtual for most of our assessments and procedures, with one notable exception: our in-lab screening sleep studies. We decided to go with HSATs and secured permission from our funding agency and IRB for the protocol change. Now the real problem: we had two re-useable HSAT devices. What we needed was a half dozen devices, ideally disposable and managed by professionals (from order-to-data). MedBridge was the solution. We worked with them hand-in-hand to identify the best fit to need devices, to establish a contract with our university, to set into place ordering and data access protocols. More, they managed all participants questions and concerns. It became a turn-key thing that ultimately doubled our pre-COVID productivity. The system worked so well, that it continues to be our preferred screening method."

    "… I would recommend MedBridge without reservation. I have worked with sleep technicians, site managers, regional managers, directors, and physicians on a regular basis.  I have also had some interactions with accounting, quality assurance, clinical support, technical support, and nurse practitioners.  The expertise, professionalism, and overall engagement I have received from all my interactions with MedBridge has been impressive."
