Strategic partnership between UPMC and Kyruus aimed at transforming digital patient access and care navigation
UPMC has entered into a strategic partnership with Kyruus, a provider search and scheduling solutions company. The partnership, which includes a direct investment in Kyruus by UPMC, will focus on development of the Kyruus ProviderMatch patient access platform.
The partnership deepens a relationship between the two organizations that started in 2019 when UPMC implemented a new systemwide provider directory with Kyruus ProviderMatch for Consumers. More recently, UPMC enabled consumers to find care and book appointments digitally using ProviderMatch DirectBook.
UPMC and other health systems are responding to consumer demands by offering more digital access channels and self-service tools.
“We have seen firsthand the power of the Kyruus solutions, with our patients benefitting from robust and user-friendly digital experiences to help them find and schedule the right point of care,” said Joon Lee, MD, President of UPMC Physician Services. “We look forward to deepening our partnership with Kyruus to support our organization’s digital patient access and care navigation goals.”
Kyruus joins the UPMC Enterprises portfolio of companies bringing innovation to health care through Digital Solutions and Translational Sciences. Enterprises provides portfolio companies and partners with capital, connections, and resources to develop solutions to health care’s most complex problems.
