“For University Hospitals, it’s the story of people, process, and technology. Our governance structure created the strategies, our tactical teams executed, and Hospital IQ provided us with the tools to do it. Hospital IQ was the game-changer that gave us the ability to capture time that would’ve gone unused, and allowed our surgeons to see what was available at all ORs across the system.”

CHALLENGE: OR BLOCK SCHEDULING

Perioperative leaders are responsible for effective utilization of operating rooms but with limited insight into the inherent daily variability that occurs (e.g., add-ons, delayed or long-running cases, cancelations), they spend the majority of their day reacting to these variances, while still retaining the risk that available resources will either exceed demand or fail to meet it. At the same time, surgeons are faced with cumbersome processes getting access to OR time that aligns with the needs of their patients and their schedule.

SOLUTION: AN AI-ENABLED PERIOPERATIVE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Hospital IQ’s Perioperative solution accurately forecasts OR usage and makes actionable recommendations that help perioperative leaders optimize capacity to better meet true surgical demand and improve perioperative performance. This real-time, data-driven platform applies system-specific policies, machine learning, optimization algorithms, and accurate forecasts to each hospital’s perioperative data to make recommendations that increase access to the OR, improve room and staff utilization, streamline patient throughput, and identify opportunities for improving overall performance.

Improve Access to OR Time

Hospital IQ streamlines access to the OR first by uncovering hidden OR time by predicting which blocks are most likely to go unused and prompting blockholders to release them, giving other surgeons sufficient time to fill those valuable primetime slots. The system then enables surgeons to readily find and request available time that best fits their schedules through an open and transparent marketplace. Finally, the perioperative management system automatically prioritizes these requests based on configurable policies, which ensure departments receive the maximum benefit from this recovered OR time.

Streamline Patient Throughput

Hospital IQ analyzes operations in real time to create holistic visibility of daily perioperative patient throughput. Leaders get advanced notice of potential barriers throughout the pre-op, intra-op, and post-op pathways. Automated workflows and notifications drive action to enable efficient patient flow across the department.
