Boston, MA, January 8, 2015 – Kyruus, a leading provider of Patient Access and Referral Management Solutions, announced today that Houston Methodist has selected its ProviderMatch suite of products to boost the efficiency and accuracy of patient referrals.
The seven-hospital health system is consistently ranked among U.S. News & World Report’s top hospitals, and shares academic affiliations with Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital, Texas A&M Health Science Center, and the University of Houston.
“Like many rapidly expanding health systems, we saw an opportunity to improve the quantity and quality of data related to our providers,” said Stephen Spielman, senior vice president of the physician organization at Houston Methodist. “Kyruus’s platform allows us to integrate providers more effectively.”
ProviderMatch will allow schedulers and referral agents at Houston Methodist’s employed PCP offices to provide convenient, real-time referrals for patients, right at the point of service.
“One of the largest data opportunities in healthcare – building and maintaining reliable and actionable information about the providers available to service patient needs – has also historically been one of the hardest to tackle,” said Dr. Graham Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Kyruus. “Houston Methodist has recognized this as an opportunity to innovate their access processes by using Big Data and dynamic workflows to better coordinate care in multiple access channels across the enterprise. We are thrilled to be partnering with this nationally recognized and rapidly growing system to drive a better care experience to its patients.”
