LeanTaaS Bringing Air Traffic Control for Hospital Operations to Life with New Product Enhancements

LeanTaaS announces its new mobile-first capabilities, enterprise-wide staffing solutions, and first-of-its-kind, generative AI solution will be available to all existing customers at no additional cost.*

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — June 4, 2024 — LeanTaaS Inc., the market leader in providing AI-powered and SaaS-based capacity management, staffing, and patient flow software for health systems, today announced new product enhancements that will further enhance its vision of air traffic control for hospitals. During the company’s industry event, Transform Hospital Operations Summit, LeanTaaS declared that its new mobile-first capabilities and first-of-its-kind, generative AI solution will be available to all existing customers at no additional cost, plus staffing solutions that are freely available to existing iQueue for Operating Rooms and iQueue for Infusion Center customers. 

As the pace of technology continues to increase and the delivery of healthcare becomes more and more complex, providers are still forced to do much of their work through phone calls, faxes, texts, and emails. These manual tools are frustrating for staff and divert time from patient care. Today’s environment requires an integrated system for hospital operations, akin to an air traffic control system, so providers across the enterprise have access to the insights and predictions they need to know what’s coming and operate at peak efficiency. Optimizing staff and assets also presents an enormous financial opportunity, equivalent to $200 billion per year in annual impact or $30-40M per year for an average sized hospital.

“We have the privilege of working in trust-based partnerships with nearly 200 health systems, and this diverse customer base gives us a critical pulse on industry needs. For the last year, we have repeatedly heard from customers that they need a mobile-first, platform approach to solving capacity and staffing challenges,” said Mohan Giridharadas, Founder and CEO of LeanTaaS. “We’re thrilled to roll out these innovations to our customers, and are confident in our delivery. By working on thousands of cases across unique assets and workflows, our products have become sophisticated and robust, continuously evolving with new features. Each solution reflects our commitment to continuous innovation and an ambitious roadmap for future enhancements.”

Powerful innovations to uplift the enterprise

  • Real-Time View: Real-Time View is a mobile-first solution that will be rolled out first to all iQueue for Operating Room customers in 2024 for improved perioperative coordination and reduced administrative burden. Real-Time View was designed as a mobile-first product to meet the needs of busy surgical team members who are always on the move and rarely have time to access the EHR at their desk. With Real-Time View, users access a live version of the OR schedule, receive real-time updates, and can seamlessly communicate with surgeons, nurses, and even medical device vendors, ensuring efficient, automated, and coordinated care — all in a PHI-free, consumer-grade user experience. 

  • Staffing Optimization: Utilizing advanced AI and workflow automation, LeanTaaS’ staffing optimization capabilities span its entire product portfolio to streamline the most time-consuming aspects of hospital staff management. This includes proactive staff planning, nurse allocation before and during each shift, real-time patient assignment, and collaboration across team members. iQueue predictive staffing solutions provide actionable insights into staffing needs, helping managers adjust staffing levels based on expected demand, and ensuring that hospitals can maintain optimal staffing ratios and improve patient care quality. By dynamically matching patients with the right nurses and balancing nursing workloads, the tools ensure proper staffing levels and an elevated experience for both patients and care providers.

    At Transform, multiple health systems are showcasing how iQueue staffing solutions are positively impacting workforce challenges. OHSU is leveraging iQueue Staff Planner to alleviate staffing challenges in the OR, saving nurses 25 hours per week. Lee Health is using iQueue’s Patient Assignment tool to balance infusion patient assignments and achieve 100% nurse satisfaction. Register for Transform to hear directly from these systems today and tomorrow. 

  • iQueue AutopilotiQueue Autopilot is the first-of-its-kind, generative AI solution for hospital operations. It provides hospital leaders with human-like conversations and actionable insights to support decision-making for patient flow, scheduling, command center, block management, staffing, and other capacity management use cases. This tool can answer specific operational questions, summarize key reports, and understand clinical abbreviations, making it an intelligent assistant for hospital staff. It’s like a member of the LeanTaaS team is with each and every customer 24/7.

iQueue Autopilot is first coming to the iQueue for Inpatient Flow and iQueue for Operating Rooms products and will initially be rolled out to the nine leading health systems in LeanTaaS’ AI Collaborative. It will be made available to all iQueue for Inpatient Flow and iQueue for Operating Rooms customers by the end of the year. 

LeanTaaS’ iQueue platform is powered by advanced AI, machine learning, lean principles, and next-level innovation from generative AI technologies. LeanTaaS products also have the highest possible security certifications, allowing safe but quick innovations. Each iQueue solution can be deployed within weeks and with a minimal IT lift to drive better patient care through operational excellence by enabling dramatically more efficient use of resources and staff, shorter waiting times, faster discharges, and higher throughput. 

The industry-leading iQueue suite is paired with LeanTaaS’ first-of-its-kind transformation services to guarantee outcomes for customers. The iQueue suite powers over 1,200 hospitals and centers across 5,600 ORs,14,000 infusion chairs, and 23,000 inpatient beds. On average, LeanTaaS customers see an annual impact of performing 30-50 more cases per OR per year and generating an additional $20k/infusion chair and $10k/inpatient bed annually.

With today’s new product announcements, LeanTaaS reaffirms its commitment to customer success and continuous innovation. Existing customers will benefit from these advancements at no additional cost, further enhancing their operational capabilities.

*The iQueue for Inpatient Flow staffing solution is an existing module and therefore needs to be licensed by interested customers.
