Health Systems Can Now Deliver Consumer Experience Rivaling Market-Leading Consumer Sites

DALLAS, TX, April 18, 2019 – Phynd Technologies, Inc., a healthcare digital transformation vendor, announced several new relationships in its mission to create digital footprints for healthcare systems.  These partnerships support Phynd’s rapid growth, further strengthening how Phynd publishes all care delivery assets via a searchable, healthcare-specific taxonomy.

Phynd has partnered with Amazon Web Services to power and scale the Phynd 360o platform. AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud-hosting platform. 

“Phynd is pleased to have AWS as its trusted web-hosting partner,” says Tom White, CEO of Phynd. “Phynd’s mission is to help health systems transform their physical care delivery assets into a single digital footprint, managed by our platform, for a better consumer experience and management of value-based care networks.  AWS meets our high-availability and response time needs, as well as stringent security requirements.”  Phynd has achieved the ISO 27001 certification, an internationally-recognized security standard. AWS’s security and encryption capabilities supported Phynd in achieving this certification.           

Phynd also announced that it is working with the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), through ABMS Solutions, to verify physician board certification and continuing certification. ABMS and its 24 Member Boards offer medical specialty classification, certifying physicians in 40 specialties and 85 subspecialties. ABMS board certification and the ABMS Maintenance of Certification® program are universally recognized indicators that physicians meet today’s standards of practice and ensure health care systems provide an informed match when consumers are searching for providers.

Phynd has also joined the Drupal Association as a corporate member to enable healthcare systems to publish their digital assets from Phynd to their websites. Drupal is the open source, digital experience framework behind millions of websites and applications; its Content Management System (CMS) helps healthcare organizations control costs while providing deeper patient and consumer engagement with information that improves lives.  Phynd interfaces with Drupal-managed health systems’ websites, continually updating the CMS with robust, curated provider information to ensure a precise provider search for patients, providers, and partners. 

“Drupal’s Content Management System is relied on by hundreds of hospitals and health systems to support public-facing websites, including Find a Doctor portals.  The Phynd-Drupal combination is powerful, ensuring that patients have an optimal digital experience.  Phynd ensures patients find the right provider or location that’s convenient, accepts their health plan, has scheduling availability and offers the right clinical care and services,” said White.

AWS and Drupal join a growing number of healthcare technology leaders who work with Phynd.  Phynd is an Epic App Orchard member.  Phynd has partnered with Healthwise to use their taxonomy of specialty, subspecialty, clinical and consumer-friendly terms to help health systems organize their providers so patients find appropriate providers to address care needs.
