Baptist Health Engages Kyruus to Enable Next-Generation Online Patient Access Experience

Kyruus announced that Baptist Health, the largest nonprofit health system in Kentucky, has engaged the company to help elevate its digital access experience for consumers. The health system will collaborate with Kyruus to modernize the care search experience for consumers on the Baptist Health website and enable them to book appointments online.

The Baptist Health team re-envisioned the online access experience for consumers, simplifying how they find the right care across the health system’s network and its more than 3,000 employed and affiliated physicians. To achieve this goal, the team engaged Kyruus to provide the comprehensive patient access solution they needed to both manage and augment system-wide provider data and make that information easily searchable for consumers online.

“At Baptist Health, the needs of our patients come first—ensuring their interactions online match the high-quality experience they’ve come to expect in our facilities,” said Baptist Health Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer Jody Prather, MD. “Partnering with Kyruus, we’ll be able to deliver on that promise by building a centralized and clinically detailed directory of our providers and care sites as the first step to accomplishing this important initiative.”

Baptist Health plans to enable consumers to book both in-person and virtual visits through the Kyruus solution package, which includes the KyruusOne platform to establish a system-wide provider directory and Kyruus ProviderMatch for Consumers to assist consumers in finding the right provider and scheduling appointments with them.

“Baptist Health has an almost 100-year history of providing care to its communities,” said Kyruus CEO Graham Gardner, MD. “We are excited to help Baptist Health further its mission to improve the health of the communities it serves by making access to its growing care network easier for consumers—with an approach grounded in rich and reliable provider data.”
