Boston, MA, May 7, 2013 – Kyruus, a leading provider of Patient Access & Referral Management Solutions, announced today that ColumbiaDoctors has selected Kyruus’ ProviderMatch platform for deployment in its new Patient Access Center. The platform will enable ColumbiaDoctors’ schedulers to connect patients with clinically appropriate, in-network providers in a timely and coordinated fashion. Kyruus will be collaborating with ColumbiaDoctors to reduce appointment wait times and optimize care coordination across its network of over 1,200 physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers.
“As one of the leading healthcare delivery systems in the country, we strive to be at the forefront of next-generation technologies,” noted Dr. Peter Stetson, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Medical Information Officer of ColumbiaDoctors. “ProviderMatch allows us to derive actionable insights from internal and external data systems in a timely way, in order to get patients to the right provider. The ability of ProviderMatch to interface with our existing practice management system is also critical to improving the efficiency and precision of patient scheduling.” The project, he says, “is key to ensuring that our clinical operations support patient needs.”
Kyruus’ platform takes a Big Data approach to serving up dynamic information on provider demographics, clinical expertise, scheduling protocols, and availability, in order to rapidly identify providers who match a patient’s needs and preferences. HL7-based interfaces enable the incorporation of ProviderMatch into patient registration and scheduling workflows for streamlined appointment booking. ColumbiaDoctors intends to use ProviderMatch to enable schedulers to help patients navigate across any department or condition, thus improving throughput and efficiency in patient access centers and referral management programs.
Dr. Louis Bigliani, President of ColumbiaDoctors, has been tasked with optimizing access and physician productivity across the organization. “Kyruus’ approach to organizing and presenting patient access data gets to the core of what drives organizational inefficiencies and operational imbalances. We look forward to a relationship that will play a pivotal role in expanding the world-class care we provide.”
“It is an honor to partner with one of the nation’s pre-eminent healthcare delivery organizations,” said Dr. Graham Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Kyruus. “Forward-thinking provider systems like ColumbiaDoctors recognize that the ability to match patients to the right provider is central to optimizing patient access. We are excited to work with the ColumbiaDoctors team to help them fulfill their patient care mission.”
