Newton, MA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Hospital IQ, an intelligent automation company, and Cerner Corporation (Nasdaq: CERN), a global health care technology company, today announced a relationship to support health systems with predictive analytics to improve clinical and operational awareness.
This collaboration will provide health systems with near real-time analytics and predictive capabilities to gain insight into where resources are being used, where they may be needed and how they can be deployed more efficiently. Health system operators, administrators and clinical leaders can increase foresight and knowledge of their operations for staff to take specific actions that improve how they deliver care.
“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.”
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’s platforms and solutions are exceptional on both breadth and depth,” said Rich Krueger, CEO and Founder, Hospital IQ. “We’ve seen firsthand how health systems benefit from their solutions and are honored to partner with Cerner to bring our technology to their clients.”
