With the Kyruus technology platform in place, Steward referral specialists and care managers will more quickly, easily and accurately match patients with Steward providers best suited to meet their health care needs. As part of this partnership, Kyruus will also power the system’s online physician search tool on Steward.org to help patients identify and easily access Steward physicians in the network.

This will improve our overall patient access, care experience and outcomes.”
The Kyruus ProviderMatch suite of products uses big data to help health systems identify and appropriately match patients with physicians and other healthcare providers. The configurable ProviderMatch Smart Search engine can be deployed in patient access channels across the entire health system enterprise and allows for dynamic patient-provider matching based on a patient’s clinical and convenience-based criteria such as insurance acceptance, location, and availability. The ability to integrate into scheduling and patient registration workflows streamlines referrals at all points of service, while business analytics highlight opportunities for capacity optimization across large provider networks.
