As hospitals grapple with the financial and logistical pressures that are a result of payment reform, growing patient volumes and regulatory compliance, they increasingly require solutions to optimize operational efficiency. Combining capabilities from the industry’s leading patient flow and operations planning and management platforms into one dynamic offering will allow hospitals and health systems to transform the way they manage and plan operations. Through systematic, data-driven performance improvement, empowered healthcare providers can identify inefficiencies (both current and anticipated) and use prediction algorithms that recommend optimized courses of action to proactively address underlying sources of waste and resource mismanagement.
“For hospitals to boost their quality of care and thrive in what is clearly a ‘new normal’ for the industry, they must embrace technology that can unleash the value of their data,” said Rich Krueger, CEO of Hospital IQ in a statement. “By benefiting from two best-in-class operations planning and management and patient flow platforms, hospitals will have the tools they need to successfully solve complex operational challenges and achieve enterprise‐wide performance objectives.”
