Bergen New Bridge Medical Center in New Jersey has extended its partnership with Altera Digital Health for an additional five years to use the Paragon electronic health record (EHR).

The publicly owned hospital will also deploy Paragon Ambulatory Care HER under the renewed partnership.

It will also leverage Microsoft Azure hosting and several other Altera solutions.

Bergen New Bridge Medical Center has been leveraging Paragon, Altera’s integrated clinical, financial, and administrative solution designed for community health systems since 2017.

Altera became a part of N. Harris Computer Corporation as a business unit under Harris Healthcare in May 2022, through the purchase of Allscripts’ Hospitals and Large Physician Practices business division.

Constellation Software is the parent company of Harris Healthcare.

Bergen New Bridge Medical Center president and CEO Deborah Visconi said: “When Altera joined Harris, we quickly experienced improvements in Paragon’s support, professional services and solutions management.

“Maintaining Paragon and expanding our relationship with Altera Digital Health supports our ability to execute our short-term goals while leveraging existing staff knowledge/skills.”

In addition to Paragon, the medical centre will also employ various other Altera solutions such as Paragon Clinician Mobile; Paragon Claims Management; dbMotion Connect; and Ventus Compliance Advisor.

 The hospital will also leverage a behavioural health content expansion package, the technology vendor said.

Furthermore, to lessen the workload associated with managing a complex IT infrastructure, Bergen New Bridge Medical Center will make use of remote hosting on Azure.

Altera Digital Health president Marcus Perez said: “Paragon is a key solution in Altera’s portfolio and an important piece of our company’s future.

“We are thrilled that Bergen New Bridge has already seen the Altera values in action and entrusts us to deliver solutions and guidance that drive high-quality care. I look forward to growing our organizations together in the years to come.”
