NEWTON, Mass., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Hospital IQ, the leading provider of predictive hospital operations

software, today announced its Surgeon Access module as part of the Hospital IQ Operations Management software platform. Using machine learning algorithms, this functionally identifies OR blocks that will not be used, allowing surgeons and surgical staff to easily find, request or release OR blocks from their mobile device or desktop computer, as well as see customizable surgeon scorecards that show important performance KPIs, such as block use type, on-time first starts and same-day cancellations. The module enables hospitals to better engage with surgeons to proactively identify hidden OR time and make it available to surgeons while eliminating the traditional back and forth with central scheduling. The result is increased surgical volume and OR utilization. Using the Surgeon Access module, hospitals can expect to capture hundreds of hours of wasted OR time per month, resulting in a significant opportunity to grow volume at times that work for surgeons, patients and surgical staff.

"Unused OR time is wasted opportunity for many health systems," said Rich Krueger, CEO, Hospital IQ. "Our Surgeon Access capabilities revolutionize the process of identifying waste and engaging surgeons and service line leaders to use this time before the opportunity is lost. This, combined with our perioperative management capabilities that are now used by over 1,000 operating rooms in the US alone, provides the most comprehensive solution for healthcare organizations and perioperative departments to simplify the process of growing volume, improving performance and throughput.

Hospital IQ will be demonstrating its Surgeon Access module, along with the other capabilities of its Operations Management software platform, at two upcoming trade shows in April:

  • Becker's Hospital Review 10th Annual Meeting, April 1-4, Chicago – Booth 912
  • AONE 2019, April 10-13, San Diego – Booth 1626

Hospital IQ's Perioperative Solution applies hospital-specific policies, machine learning and optimization algorithms to perioperative data to accurately forecast OR usage and make recommendations that will improve block, OR and staff utilization, and grow volume. Leading hospitals and health networks have deployed the solution to improve productivity and grow volume without increasing costs. Perioperative customers using Hospital IQ reported improvements, such as:

  • 13% increase in OR utilization
  • 4% increase in surgical volume
  • 7% decrease in labor costs
