Health IT startup to know: Hospital IQ

Hospital IQ, based in Newton, Mass., is a platform designed to allow hospital leaders to leverage data for informed operational decisions and predictable outcomes.


The startup was founded in 2013 by software entrepreneur Rich Krueger. Mr. Krueger remains with the company as president and CEO. The company was self-funded through customer contracts, but took on additional growth equity this year. Today, Hospital IQ has 13 employees.

The Hospital IQ platform, which does not require an IT build, uses predictive analytics to find trends in existing hospital data. The platform can be used to solve problems around issues such as inpatient and operating room bed utilization, surgical throughput, staff overtime and capacity planning.

The platform has been used by providers including Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Boston Medical Center and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
