Washington, D.C., October 19, 2015 – U.S. News & World Report, publisher of Best Hospitals, today announced new first-in-class physician search and scheduling capabilities for its Best Hospital and Doctor Finder sites through a collaboration with Kyruus. Patients researching care options on www.usnews.com will now have the ability to search for and book directly with physicians whose organizations operate the Kyruus ProviderMatch™ platform.
The new service is being rolled out to a group of leading health organizations, starting with Swedish Medical Center in Seattle this fall, and expanding to Keck Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles and Hospital for Special Surgery in New York in 2016.
“For over 25 years, U.S. News has helped patients in search of reliable health care information find the best hospitals to treat their specific needs,” said Chad Smolinski, senior vice president of U.S. News. “Our collaboration with Kyruus allows us to offer patients a new tool that makes it easier for them to seamlessly find a physician and book an appointment.”
