Newly-Formed Prisma Health Selects Kyruus Solutions to Optimize Patient Access and Provider Network Management Post-Merger

South Carolina’s Largest Health System to Leverage Digital Solutions
to Drive Systemness

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kyruus,
a leader in provider search and scheduling solutions for health systems,
today announced that Prisma
Health
, now South Carolina’s largest health system – formed from the
merger of Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health – has selected
the company’s patient access platform to optimize access to its
expansive network. The health system will leverage KyruusOne®
to create a system-wide, digital provider directory and implement ProviderMatch
for Access Centers
and ProviderMatch
for Consumers
to help patients find the right providers for their
care needs across the system.

Following the merger, Prisma Health needed a way to integrate provider
data stored in disparate systems across the enterprise to gain a single
view of the network and facilitate access for the more than 1.2 million
patients who obtain care annually across South Carolina’s Midlands and
Upstate regions. It was essential to find a solution that would address
common post-merger challenges, including limited visibility into who is
in the network and what they specialize in, which can hinder both
patient access to timely care and overall network utilization. Prisma
Health chose Kyruus to help it solve for these challenges due to the
company’s robust provider data management solution, unique
enterprise-wide patient access platform, and experience working with top
health systems across the US.

Prisma Health will engage providers in the process of creating rich
profiles – including capturing their clinical areas of focus in detail
– and then make that information easily searchable in its access center
and on its website through the ProviderMatch solutions. Consumers
seeking care at the health system will not only have a consistent
experience across access points, but also new self-service options
available online. Through ProviderMatch for Consumers and its
integration with leading EHRs, Prisma Health will be able to offer
consumers both visibility into appointment availability and the option
to book directly online, delivering convenience while helping them
navigate to the right providers.

“Combining two health systems is no easy task, so it’s critical for
health systems to plan ahead to foster systemness around patient access,
starting with developing a central view of the providers comprising
their network,” said Graham Gardner, CEO of Kyruus. “We are honored to
help the Prisma Health team gain that view and position themselves to
provide a unified ‘front door’ experience to patients across the system.”
