Josh Douglas discusses the ongoing shift from fee-for-service to value-based care and the keys to achieving true value-based care.
Joshua Douglas is the Chief Technology Officer at Bridge Connector, a technology company working to change the way health care communicates by delivering streamlined integration solutions. Joshua has called on his 15-plus years of experience in integration, clinical workflow, data and analytics strategy, process improvement, and product management, as he has helped grow Bridge Connector’s workforce from single to triple digits, including the complete build-out of their tech and product teams.
Most recently, Joshua was Principal at D2 Health Inc., a Nashville-based consulting company that advised large health care organizations on integration strategy and architecture, product management and commercialization, and process improvement.

Other previous roles have included Vice President of Client Services at MEDarchon, an enterprise health care communications and analytics software company, and Integration Architect at MEDHOST, a provider of enterprise health care engagement solutions to more than 1,000 health care facilities.
Joshua’s expertise with health IT organizations in the Nashville area has garnered speaking engagements in the Nashville metro area for healthcare and tech organizations, including at the Nashville Post “Vitals” event in late 2018, on a panel about how care providers, technology companies, and patients are making better use of health care data. Additionally, he is a Certified Specialist in HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), which specifies the encoding, structure, and semantics of clinical documents for exchange.
