An Insider's view of Kyruus

What's something quirky about your company?

We Kyruuvians add k’s and “:u”s to commonly used words, tools, APIs, pretty much anything that contributes to our own growing lingo. For example, we have an employee recognition program that’s called Ku:udos, Kamunda is Kyruus API wrapper for Camunda (a workflow engine), Downloadu:ur is a tool to deliver reports to clients, and you get the idea!

Nausheen

Vice President, Engineering

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our platform ingests, parses and organizes data from health systems' provider and scheduling data, providing customers with a platform to make finding a doctor and booking an appointment as easy as booking a seat on a flight. Scaling our match capabilities with new sources of data, algorithms and presenting it simply are current areas of focus.

Chris

SVP - Product + Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to enable patients to get matched to the right provider the first time, in such a way that solves "The Patient Access Paradox", wherein patients are told to wait months for doctors appointments, despite the fact that 20-40% of the capacity in the healthcare system goes under-utilized.

Julie

Co-Founder / Chief Strategy Officer

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about the potential for chatbots to provide better matching between patients & doctors. With a chatbot, we can provide a rich user interaction that provides a better experience & better match than the existing "search and filter for doctors" paradigm, and also allows for a seamless handoff to a person in a doctor's office if needed

Will

Director of Engineering
