University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) to Utilize Kyruus Technology to Enhance Patient Access and Patient-Provi

Leading Provider of Care in
Mississippi to Empower Its Call Center Staff with a Comprehensive Provider
Directory and Powerful Provider Search Solution

Boston, MA – June 28, 2018 – Kyruus, a leader in provider search and
scheduling solutions for health systems, today announced that the
University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), has selected the company’s ProviderMatch for
Access Centers
solution to
optimize patient access to its network of providers across the state of
Mississippi. The only academic medical center in the state, UMMC includes
800-plus providers who deliver care at 170 locations, including the
organization’s six hospitals. ProviderMatch for Access Centers will make it
easier for call center agents to identify the right provider for patients’
needs, enabling more precise patient-provider matching to support both patient
and provider satisfaction.

 With its
network of providers delivering care to over 600,000 patients a year across 82
counties, UMMC first needed a modern solution that would enable it to gain a
single point of access to provider information and a deeper level of insight
into providers’ areas of expertise. The KyruusOne™ provider data management
platform – which powers each of the ProviderMatch
solutions
– offered
that consolidated view, along with comprehensive provider profiles configured
using Kyruus’ 16,000-term clinical taxonomy. The taxonomy allows providers to
indicate what they do at a detailed level, going beyond specialty and
subspecialty to include specific conditions and procedures, so call center
agents have more of the information they need at their fingertips.

 Agents in
UMMC’s call center will use the powerful search engine in ProviderMatch for
Access Centers to match patients with appropriate providers. Leveraging
accurate, up-to-date data from KyruusOne, ProviderMatch includes user-friendly
keyword-based search and dynamic filters to help agents efficiently and
effectively identify the providers who best match the patient’s clinical needs,
logistical requirements, and personal preferences. By reducing complexity and
manual workflows, the solution empowers agents to enhance service to patients
and boost call conversion, while also reducing the time required to onboard new
call center staff.

 “With UMMC
being such a key source of healthcare services for patients across Mississippi,
optimizing patient access and available appointment capacity across the
provider network is critical,” said Graham Gardner, CEO of Kyruus. “We’re
excited to be working with the UMMC team to help them enhance the patient
experience and help patients across their communities find the right providers
at the right time and location.”
