An employed provider must be credentialed by Hospital Credentialing and active in PeopleSoft in order for their profile to appear in Kyruus ProviderMatch.

The practice manager or marketing stakeholder must also inform the Digital Team through Task Management that a provider has officially started employment at MedStar. The Digital Team will then assign the provider practice group (based on Hospital Echo) in order for the provider to show up on Find-A-Doc.
Practice managers or providers (post onboarding) must submit a ticket to [email protected] to activate a provider’s Kyruus ProviderMatch account by providing the provider’s MedStar email address, NPI, and Network ID. Provider will be able to edit their profile using their login information.
Kyruus pulls data from multiple sources such as Hospital Credentialing (Hospital Echo), Scheduling Systems (IDX), Managed Care (MFC Echo), and PeopleSoft. MedStar providers, practice managers, and hospital marketers play an essential role in submitting profile updates to either the Digital Team or various data sources.
