Annual Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Health & Medical Technology Products and Companies
BOSTON, MA – May 5, 2022 – Kyruus, the leader in provider search and scheduling solutions for healthcare organizations, today announced that its ProviderMatch for Consumers solution has been selected as the winner of MedTech’s “Best Online Search and Scheduling Solution” award for the third consecutive year. The annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization, recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.ProviderMatch for Consumers is an online search and scheduling solution that healthcare organizations can embed in their websites and mobile apps to help patients find and schedule the right care for their needs. Nearly 100 leading healthcare organizations across the United States, representing over 300,000 providers, utilize the Kyruus ProviderMatchⓇ platform to create modern, powerful, and consumer-centric patient access strategies.
Built on top of KyruusOneⓇ, the market-leading provider and location data management platform, ProviderMatch enables consumers to search for a provider using their own words and then filter by key selection criteria (e.g., insurance accepted, language spoken, location), allowing them to locate the best match for their needs. Through integrations with leading EHRs, ProviderMatch surfaces near real-time appointment inventory across the network, enabling consumers to find care and easily self-schedule appointments in a single online experience.
Since winning the award last year, Kyruus expanded its offerings to include search and scheduling capabilities for an array of preventive and diagnostic services including imaging (e.g., mammograms, colonoscopies, X-rays), lab services (e.g., blood draws, urinalysis, COVID-19 testing), vaccines, and more. Healthcare organizations can now leverage the Kyruus ProviderMatch platform to power care search and scheduling experiences through a variety of channels—including access centers, patient portals, health plan directories, search engine results and more.
“With digital self-service being top-of-mind for consumers, we’ve focused our innovation on helping our customers meet this demand, enabling people to find and schedule a growing array of care types through more channels every day,” said Scott Andrews, General Manager of Health Systems at Kyruus. “With nearly two million appointments booked across our platform, we’re thrilled to be recognized again for the pivotal role Kyruus ProviderMatch plays in advancing digital transformation and consumer-centricity in healthcare.”
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 Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program was extremely competitive, attracting more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“Hospitals and health systems, like organizations in so many other industries, are looking for ways to offer their communities convenient online self-scheduling. To do this effectively, healthcare organizations need strong partners who are able to help them accelerate digital transformation while offering a high-quality experience to consumers,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, MedTech Breakthrough. “We’re pleased to recognize Kyruus again this year as a leader in this space—continually innovating and enabling healthcare organizations to deliver the level of self-service consumers demand.”
