Kyruus Named Back-to-Back Winner of MedTech Breakthrough Award for Best Patient Scheduling Solution
Annual Awards Program Recognizes the Top Companies, Platforms, and Products in Healthcare
BOSTON - May 6, 2021 - Kyruus, the leader in provider search and scheduling solutions for health systems, today announced that Kyruus ProviderMatch® for Consumers, has received the “Best Patient Registration & Scheduling Solution” award from MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global health and medical technology market. This marks the second year in a row that ProviderMatch for Consumers has earned this distinction in the annual awards program.
ProviderMatch for Consumers is an online search and scheduling solution that healthcare organizations integrate into their websites and mobile apps to help consumers find and book care easily online. Dozens of leading health systems across the United States are already using the solution to deliver a modern, digital access experience to both new and existing patients. Built on a robust provider data management platform, ProviderMatch gives consumers detailed insight into providers’ areas of expertise, so they can make choices based on rich and up-to-date information. Kyruus conducts thorough user research to surface the information in a truly consumer-centric search experience.
Since the “right” care may not always be a provider office visit, ProviderMatch also helps consumers navigate to other care options, such as urgent care clinics and virtual care, when appropriate – then book their appointments conveniently online. Over the past year, Kyruus introduced a range of new capabilities to empower both their customers and the consumers they serve with a wider array of online scheduling options – leveraging direct integrations with multiple leading EHRs. This included self-service appointment booking for virtual care visits, COVID-19 vaccines, COVID-19 tests, and annual mammograms.
“Healthcare consumers increasingly seek the convenience of online booking and the solutions that stand out are proven to support the needs of both consumers and care organizations,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Once again, ProviderMatch for Consumers has emerged as the clear winner of this award – a rare back-to-back achievement in our program – and we congratulate the entire Kyruus team on the impact they’re having in healthcare.”
Now in its fifth year, the mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records, mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from more than 15 countries across the world.
”Online access was in higher demand this past year than ever before and I’m incredibly proud of the ways the Kyruus team collaborated with our customers to quickly extend the scheduling options available in ProviderMatch,” said Scott Andrews, General Manager, Health Systems at Kyruus. “ProviderMatch plays an instrumental role in enabling healthcare organizations to expand digital self-service and we’re honored that MedTech Breakthrough recognized it again this year.”
Kyruus helps healthcare organizations connect people with the right care across their key access points. The company’s industry-defining provider search and scheduling platform enables leading health systems, hospitals, and medical groups nationwide – spanning more than 300,000 providers – to attract and retain patients with a modern and consistent access experience. Robust provider data management forms the foundation of the platform, helping people find the right providers and care settings for their needs based on rich, system-wide information. To extend its impact on care navigation, Kyruus acquired HealthSparq in 2021 to bridge payer and provider access channels like never before.
