Phynd Technologies, health care provider information management platform, recently announced that UC San Diego Health has selected it to manage all provider information across its 800-bed hospital and multi-specialty academic health science center. UC San Diego Health joins UCI Health in Orange County, CA as a Phynd user, making it the second of the five of UC Health’s academic medical health systems.

UC San Diego Health reportedly will leverage the Phynd platform to curate a single, digitized, searchable system containing all employed and external providers and their subspecialties, locations, health plan participation and more, with the goal of enhancing provider data quality in UC San Diego Health and UCI Health’s shared Epic system and retire their homegrown siloed database system.

“We have gone live with Phynd because of the depth and breadth of Phynd’s provider and location profiles, as well as its powerful search capability, giving us an enterprise-wide, single source of truth to manage all provider and related information,” said Sri Bharadwaj, CISO, UCI Health.  “The bi-directional integration with Epic will ensure that provider, specialty, location, health plan and other information in Epic is always accurate and up-to-date.”

“We’re pleased to be expanding our UC Health partnership with the addition of UC San Diego,” said Tom White, CEO, Phynd. “We look forward to UC San Diego Health, a leader in numerous medical and surgical specialties, joining the growing number of health systems deploying Phynd to ensure that provider, place and payor information is always up-to-date in their EHR and other mission-critical systems.”
