August 9, 2016

Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) and Hospital IQ, Inc. entered into a strategic partnership to make Hospital IQ’s predictive analytics platform available to Allscripts Sunrise™ and Allscripts EPSi™ clients. The innovative operational planning and management platform will enable Allscripts customers to save money, reduce uncertainty and improve the quality of care.

Hospital IQ’s cloud-based predictive analytics platform helps hospitals optimize efficiency through data-driven performance improvement. The software leverages proven operations research and data science including real-time predictions, “what-if” scenario simulations and automated business intelligence for systematic efficiency optimization. The platform enables hospitals to align resources—such as staff, operating rooms and inpatient beds—with actual and predicted patient flow.

“Hospitals are under immense financial and logistical pressure. By integrating Hospital IQ’s solutions, our clients can leverage their investments in other technology platforms to improve operational efficiency and thrive in this environment,” Allscripts President Rick Poulton said. “EPSi customers will have unparalleled capability to achieve enterprise-level financial objectives by integrating dynamic operational planning tools into the strategic budgeting process.”

“This partnership enables us to fulfill our mission of helping providers deliver a higher quality of care at a lower cost by deploying our technology to more institutions, faster,” Hospital IQ CEO Rich Krueger said. “It is clear to me that Allscripts shares a similar vision and I am excited about this important partnership.”
