“Patient experience begins from the first point of contact and needs to be accurate, consistent and pleasant across all channels of engagement,” noted Dr. Inga Lennes of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. “Too often, the patient access experience is fragmented across different channels such as call centers, consumer-facing websites and physician offices due to siloed systems and protocols. It often results in a poor experience for the patient and, worse, a poor patient-provider match.”
“Kyruus increases the visibility into the clinical experience of providers across the entire hospital network,” said Dr. Michael Nochomovitz, who oversees a physician enterprise of more than 1,600 doctors across 7 hospitals and 150 practice locations in the Cleveland area. “This provides systems the ability to match patients to the providers that are best for them and for the system.”
Dr. Graham Gardner, CEO and co-founder of Kyruus, said, “We founded Kyruus with a central commitment to improving the way in which we deliver care to patients. I am honored that some of the leading clinicians and hospital operations executives have joined our mission to improve patient experience and patient health through better clinical matching. Their participation in our product development and research initiatives will ensure that we can continue to deliver a solution that works for patients, their physicians and the overall health system.”
Kyruus will continue the discussion of improving patient experience and patient health through better patient access with top industry thought leaders at the Annual Thought Leadership on Access Symposium (ATLAS) on Nov. 19, 2014 in Boston.
