kyruus

Our goal is to get every patient to the right provider the first time, and to solve the crippling supply-demand mismatch problem that ails our health care system today.

How it all began

Healthcare in the US is a surly beast. Even though i've been incredibly blessed to have good health, and have never needed to test the system with any serious ailments, i've encountered all the typical consumer like woes. How do I find a new primary care doctor that is good? How much does prescriptions cost? How do copays and deductables REALLY work and what health insurance plan should I pick?! Sure, these examples are somewhat trivial compared to the complex and seemingly infinite avenues many have to navigate through the healthcare machine, but as consumers we want to feel like we have some control over all elements, small and large relative to our health.

I got connected with the brilliant Julie Yoo of Kyruus, and she schooled me all the incredibly interesting ways they are trying to build products to better serve health institutions and consumers alike (and the challenges too). There was no doubt I was allured by the vast opportunity to make an impact in such an incredibly important industry.

The Company

Kyruus was founded by a team of physicians and technologists who saw an opportunity to leverage data to help health systems match patients with providers more precisely and reduce barriers to access. Kyruus is a leading Big Data company that enables hospitals and health systems to take a data-driven approach to building, operating, and optimizing their physician networks. The first-in-class KyruusOneTM data mining and analytics platform creates a “unified view of the physician” across demographic, clinical, research, financial, and performance-related dimensions. Kyruus’ purpose-built search, analysis, and workflow applications deliver measurable ROI in areas of network development, regulatory compliance, and referral network management by directly engaging physicians to help reduce their administrative overhead, optimize decision-making, and increase the efficiency of their clinical practice and research activities.

Jason Frade
UX Designer

Jason, a native Bostonian, was working on the west coast when I first came across his work. When he accepted a position to join my team, I was excited that we stole back a UX resource from the valley, and more importantly we gained a young, but strong UX designer to the team. Jason had worked at HP and other enterprise companies and was a perfect fit for the Kyruus platform. Jason's work almost always exceeded expectations, and he was great to work with and manage. Any design team would be lucky to have Jason in their ranks!
