BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kyruus, a leading provider of Patient Access & Referral Management solutions, announced today that Douglas Kim has joined the company as its Chief Commercial Officer. Mr. Kim will oversee the company’s sales, marketing, and customer success functions as it continues to expand its customer base.
“Hospital systems are struggling to effectively grow and manage their physician networks as they try to better coordinate care for their patients”
“Bringing Douglas on board was a key priority for us as we scale the commercial operations of the company,” said Graham Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Kyruus. “His deep experience in selling and delivering enterprise software solutions is critical as we undergo a phase of rapid growth and expansion in the healthcare market. We look forward to his contributions as we continue to establish Kyruus as the leader in Patient Access solutions.”
Mr. Kim brings more than 25 years of marketing, sales, and delivery expertise to Kyruus. Prior to joining Kyruus, he spent 12 years at Pegasystems, Inc. – a world leader in Business Process Management and CRM solutions – where he played a pivotal role in commercializing the company’s entrance into the Business Process Management market. Prior to Pegasystems, Mr. Kim was the Founder of Talksender Inc, a pioneer in cloud based rich-media e-mail marketing used by Warner Bros., Sony Music and Grey Advertising. Mr. Kim began his career at Novasoft - the leader in Electronic Content Management, where he built and ran the channel function and the Latin America and European regions. He is a graduate of Boston University School of Engineering, where he studied Biomedical and Manufacturing Engineering.
“Hospital systems are struggling to effectively grow and manage their physician networks as they try to better coordinate care for their patients,” stated Mr. Kim. “Too often, there’s a poor understanding of who is even on the provider staff, their areas of clinical expertise, and how to optimize their schedules and service capacity. As a result, both patient and provider satisfaction suffer, and the system itself experiences tremendous revenue leakage. Our customers tell us that within months of deploying Kyruus’ cloud-based solutions, they’re benefiting from a significant increase in booked appointments and a 50% reduction in leakage. I’m very excited to be joining such an impressive team that is building impactful solutions to this very real problem in healthcare. I look forward to working with our clients to define the future of patient access.”
