About the Scheduling team -
A doctor’s calendar is way more complicated than yours or mine. A doctor isn’t simply “free” or “busy”; they have distinct blocks of time to see different types of patients, and rules about how many types a day they can see. Of course, every brand of hospital software implements these rules differently, and every hospital has different rules.
The scheduling team’s mission is to create a single index that can track every doctor and every appointment, and provide the integration back to book appointments. We use big data techniques in AWS Lambda so that we can process this data as quickly as possible, as any and every booking or cancellation affects the index.Kyruus offers the first & only product to search & book multiple doctors across multiple hospitals.
You’ll be passionate that the Scheduling Team’s mission is to enable cross-hospital booking of providers (doctors, physicians’ assistants, etc). You’ll understand how complicated a provider’s calendar is -- every hour has a rule about how it can be scheduled, every vendor models it differently, and every hospital uses the vendors’ software differently. You’ll be self-driven about developing a unifying index for all providers, and a universal endpoint to book appointments.
