UC Health brings predictive analytics into the OR

Aurora, Colo.-based UCHealth is the first-ever hospital to deploy iQueue for Operating Rooms, LeanTaaS' OR predictive analytics and optimization solution.

OR management is a complex issue that many health systems struggle with, and inefficient management of OR blocks impacts patients, administrators and surgeons alike.

"UCHealth is focused on providing the very best, most efficient care for our patients. iQueue for Operating Rooms provides deep visibility into OR utilization," Steve Hess, CIO of UCHealth, said in a statement. "It tells us why we're not fully utilizing our operating rooms, where the bottlenecks are and how we can make it better. Every minute of OR time is valuable; even a small gain can have a big impact on our bottom line."

Key features of LeanTaas' iQueue include continuous OR monitoring to enable visibility, determine the root cause of delays and identify opportunities for improvement; the use of mathematical models to properly allocate OR resources; and mobile interactions that simplify block management.
