Providence St. Joseph Health joins Kryuus' $10M funding round to advance patient-provider matching

Kyruus raised $10 million in a recent funding round, the Boston-based scheduling solutions and provider search startup announced April 18.

More than 400 hospitals have implemented solutions from Kyruus — which use analytics to help hospitals match and schedule patients with appropriate providers — since the company's launch in 2010.

Kyruus officials plan to put the $10 million in funding toward product development and integrating its platform with third-party health IT vendors. In January, Epic approved Kyruus for its online marketplace, called the App Orchard, so that Epic's hospital clients can integrate Kyruus' solutions.

Officials also plan to move the company's headquarters to a larger office in Boston in summer 2018 to accommodate its employee growth.

Kyruus' investors include venture capital firms Venrock, Highland Capital, New Leaf Venture Partners, Leerink Transformation Partners, F-Prime Capital Partners, Fidelity Biosciences, McKesson Ventures and Lux Capital, along with Providence Ventures, the venture capital arm of Renton, Wash.-based Providence St. Joseph Health.

"As a customer and investor, it's been great to be part of Kyruus' growth and we look forward to partnering with them as they continue to pave the way in helping more people in our communities access our care," Aaron Martin, executive vice president and chief digital officer at Providence St. Joseph Health and managing general partner at Providence Ventures, said in an April 18 statement.
