Kyruus, a provider search and scheduling solutions for health systems, today announced that Ochsner Health, the largest non-profit, academic health system in Louisiana, is utilizing the company’s provider data management and API solutions to offer consumers an enhanced online find-a-provider experience. Kyruus is helping the health system manage provider data more effectively and enable more precise patient-provider matching on its website and mobile apps.
Building A Scalable, Enterprise-Wide Directory to Streamline Patient Access
Ochsner Health sought a more efficient way to maintain rich, up-to-date provider information that it could, in turn, surface to consumers seeking care online. The team engaged Kyruus to build a scalable, system-wide directory of its more than 3,000 providers, seeking to both consolidate existing data and augment it with new clinical insights. Implementing KyruusOne® has allowed Ochsner Health to streamline ongoing data maintenance and governance drastically, as well as capture providers’ clinical areas of focus in much more detail using Kyruus’ proprietary clinical taxonomy.
“Solving the issue of fragmented provider data not only benefits consumers and providers, but also our internal teams who previously spent hours every month on manual updates,” said Amber Welch, Assistant Vice President of Digital Content & Creative Media at Ochsner Health.
ProviderMatch Search API
Ochsner Health’s new provider directory now forms the foundation of its efforts to upgrade digital access to its vast care network for consumers searching for care online. The health system is using Kyruus’ ProviderMatch Search API to power the search process in its find-a-provider with more complete and accurate data from KyruusOne, so it’s easier for consumers to find the right matches for their specific needs and preferences. The team also plans to use the API to populate new service line and location pages on its website.
