What is MedBridge?

MedBridge is an online continuing education and patient engagement provider. It is like a “Netflix of CEUs”. As a subscriber, you have access to hundreds of online and live CEU courses. The courses range from topics on evaluation to treatment.   There is a growing library of 350+ SLP courses. Topics cover the lifespan from pediatrics to geriatrics.   

With MedBridge, you can come home from work and scroll through the site.  From there, you can pick classes that are of interest to you.  Classes are on average 45 minutes to an hour and a half in length.  

You get to watch the classes that you want, when you need them. For example, maybe you are getting a patient coming into your clinic and need to brush up on something specific. Such as, resonant voice therapy or the effects of radiation treatment on swallowing.  There is a MedBridge class for that!

Topics that MedBridge courses cover include adults, pediatrics, documentation and business, compliance, ethics and leadership/professional development.  MedBridge offer 70+ compliance courses, which helps clinicians stay in accordance with regulatory requirements. 

 

What Makes MedBridge Online CEU’s for SLP’s Better than Competitor Sites?

The biggest difference between MedBridge and competitor sites is the quality of the online CEU’s for SLP’s offered.  The presenters are some of the top researchers and innovators in the field. These lecturers are presenting the most noteworthy, current and EBP-based information.  

Highlighted Presenters and Courses Include:

  • Dr. Ianessa Humbert has a course on understanding the normal and disordered swallow in adults
  • Dr. Catriona M. Steele has courses on Videofluoroscopy and dysphagia therapy

What is the Difference Between the Education and Premium Subscription?

The main difference between the education and premium membership is that the premium membership has patient education and a home exercise program tool for patients.  The patient education includes videos and handouts for patient’s. Through the premium membership, you can have your patients set up a program where they can view home exercises and educational handouts that you select for them.  

The home exercise program (HEP) builder has a library of over 5,000 exercises ( for PT, OT and SLP) that can be used to create templates. Patients are not required to have a MedBridge membership in order to receive HEPs from their providers. Their provider can text or email the programs direct to the patient or they may also be printed.

 

Is MedBridge a Good Deal?

In brief, YES! MedBridge is an AMAZING deal for online CEU’s for SLP’s! In fact, I calculated saving between $250-$750/year by using MedBridge. This is compared to the cost of attending classes in person or paying for online courses a la carte at other sites. That is a HUGE savings!

 

Does My Membership Renew at the Discounted Price?

in addition to being a good deal initially, MedBridge renews at a discounted rate! Therefore, once you lock in a discounted price, your membership automatically renews at the same price every year.

 

Does MedBridge Report to ASHA?

YES!  MedBridge is an ASHA-approved continuing education provider.  Hence, they report your course credits to the CE Registry on a quarterly basis.

 

Can I get Live CEU’s from MedBridge?

Some states have live CEU requirements.  MedBridge offers approximately 1 live CEU event per month. The live webinars are for all disciplines, so they may not always apply to your discipline. If you are not sure if the live event, or any class in general, counts towards CEUs for your state, you can check.  In every course, there is an accreditation checker. You can use this tool to see if the CEU counts for accreditation in your state.
