Hospital IQ, an intelligent automation company, and Cerner today announced a relationship to support health systems with predictive analytics to improve clinical and operational awareness. Hospital IQ’s cloud-based software platform combines advanced data analytics, machine learning, and simulation technology with an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface to deliver optimized surgical resource alignment, patient flow, and staff scheduling capabilities.
Expand Situational Awareness Across Health System
While the relationship is initially focused on more efficiently allocating resources during the preparation for surgeries, Hospital IQ and Cerner expect to work together to expand situational awareness across the health system. Hospital IQ’s perioperative solution, combined with Cerner’s data and analytics, will help health systems more efficiently meet surgical demands and make decisions on resource allocation by predicting when operating rooms will be used and comparing with the clinicians needed to conduct procedures. Balancing operating room resources effectively will be increasingly important in the coming weeks as health systems prepare to reschedule procedures delayed due to COVID-19.
“Cerner is helping health systems around the world use near-real-time data and analytics to more efficiently allocate medical equipment and deploy clinicians,” said Bob Robke, Vice President, Strategic Growth, Cerner. “With Hospital IQ, health systems can anticipate and predict patient needs, helping them prepare more in advance to coordinate resources across the hospital, emergency department, and surgery rooms. We’re relentlessly advancing our clients’ successes and constantly looking for new ways to use data that helps them operate more optimally and deliver care more effectively.”
