is acquiring

more than 20 companies working to make healthcare more economically sustainable

Acquisition Will Transform Care Navigation Through Novel
Payer-Provider Collaboration

Healthcare remains incredibly siloed, making it difficult
for people to find and schedule care that meets their unique clinical,
financial, and personal needs. Kyruus’ acquisition of HealthSparq expands the
company’s mission to make healthcare work better for everyone by connecting
people to the care they need, whether they search on a health system website or
health plan website. This will also accelerate payer-provider collaboration to
further streamline patient access and boost provider data accuracy.

Post-Acquisition Plans & Impact

Together, Kyruus and HealthSparq serve more than 60 health
systems and 100 health plan brands nationwide. The companies have already
started working together in select markets to enhance health plan directories
with provider-verified data and enable online scheduling from health plan websites.
Combining operations will accelerate the integration of their platforms,
enabling health plans to link personalized insurance benefit and cost
information with rich provider data, while allowing health systems to tap into
health plan websites as a new patient engagement source. Over time, the unified
platform will facilitate increasingly sophisticated patient routing and
matching across channels – all while giving people the convenience of online
scheduling wherever they look for care.

The HealthSparq team will transition to Kyruus and continue
to execute on HealthSparq’s full breadth of solutions for health plans. Mark
Menton, CEO of HealthSparq, will join the Kyruus executive team and serve as
General Manager of the health plan business unit.
