Newton, Mass. – December 22, 2020Hospital IQ, the leading provider of predictive hospital operations software, announced today that they were selected as a winner in the 22nd annual Digital Health Awards®. This competition recognizes the world’s best digital health resources. Hospital IQ’s COVID-19 Regional Forecast Dashboard received the 1st place Gold Award for Web-based Digital Health: Website.

“We were delighted to participate in the 22nd annual Digital Health Awards competition and are grateful to be honored for the true value behind our real-time dashboard which provides up-to-date insights of current and forecasted COVID-19 cases and associated resource demands,” said Tim Vasil, EVP & CTO of Hospital IQ.

Hospital IQ’s COVID-19 Regional Forecast Dashboard was created to help hospitals plan for the upcoming surge of patients due to COVID-19. Since launching in April 2020, over 70,000 users from hundreds of hospitals across the United States have used this free tool for better visibility into the county-level resource needs based on precise predictions of peak hospital admissions, bed capacity, and ventilators. The COVID-19 Regional Forecast Dashboard automatically aggregates data from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), the COVID Tracking Project, Johns Hopkins University, as well as other trusted sources and can be filtered to the county-level, allowing for immediate access to forecast Med-surg, ICU admissions and associated bed capacity.

In addition to the award winning COVID-19 Regional Forecast Dashboard, Hospital IQ’s platform is helping organizations across the country manage their COVID-19 operations in a more proactive manner. Using their predictive analytics and workflow orchestration platform, organizations can proactively manage capacity constraints, coordinate discharges, plan elective surgeries, and deploy staff to support daily operations.

“When the pandemic hit, our entire Hospital IQ team started thinking about how we could use our capabilities and know-how to help,” said Rich Krueger, CEO of Hospital IQ. “It has been extremely rewarding to our entire company that by applying our artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to the hospital’s own data and then augmenting it with data provided by the COVID-19 Regional Forecast dashboard, we’ve been able to do our part in helping health systems and communities better navigate through the pandemic.”
