Kyruus ProviderMatch® for Consumers in Spanish Wins Patient Engagement Innovation Award

MedTech Breakthrough Recognizes Spanish Language Version of Kyruus’
Consumer-Facing Solution

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kyruus,
a leader in provider search and scheduling solutions for health systems,
today announced that Kyruus
ProviderMatch® for Consumers in Spanish
, the
Spanish-language version of its consumer-facing solution, received the
“Patient Engagement Innovation Award” in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough
Awards Program. MedTech
Breakthrough
is an independent organization that recognizes the top
companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology
market.

ProviderMatch
for Consumers
, which won the MedTech Breakthrough award for “Best
Patient Scheduling Solution” in 2018, is an online provider search and
scheduling solution that health systems embed in their websites to help
patients find the right providers for their needs, view appointment
availability, and book appointments. Through dynamic provider search
capabilities, comprehensive provider profiles, and direct integrations
with EHRs, ProviderMatch enables health systems to offer modern digital
experiences to consumers – driving patient engagement and satisfaction,
while helping systems attract and convert consumer demand online.

The Spanish language version extends the benefits of ProviderMatch to
Spanish-speaking consumers, enabling health systems to offer an
immersive provider search experience in Spanish on their websites, so
they can engage this growing population in new and empowering ways. The
translation includes Kyruus’ full 20,000-term clinical taxonomy, giving
this population the ability to run keyword-based searches–a hallmark of
the Kyruus solution–rather than more limited specialty-based searches.
Ultimately, by enabling more precise-patient provider matching,
ProviderMatch for Consumers in Spanish helps improve patient access and
the overall patient experience.

“The patient engagement category of our annual MedTech Breakthrough
Awards program garners a high volume and wide variety of compelling
nominations for solutions improving engagement in new ways,” said James
Johnson, Managing Director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Kyruus’ approach
combines innovative digital technology for health systems and patients
with increased access for the growing Hispanic population – making the
benefits of technology available to a wider audience. We commend Kyruus
for this innovation and are glad to recognize them in our 2019 awards
program.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence
and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of
health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical
Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health
Records, mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This
year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15
different countries throughout the world.

“Our commitment to improving patient access spans the different
population segments our health system customers serve,” said Erin Jospe,
MD, Chief Medical Officer at Kyruus. “Language can pose a barrier when
it comes to making well-informed healthcare choices, and we’re proud
that this innovation helps remove that barrier. We appreciate the
recognition from MedTech Breakthrough.”

ProviderMatch for Consumers in Spanish is generally available to
customers on the Kyruus platform.
