Improving Operational Efficiency in Healthcare By Mohan Giridharadas, Founder and CEO, LeanTaaS The notion of improving operational efficiency is conspicuously absent from the healthcare debate - neither Obamacare nor the newly proposed GOP plan discusses the impact that a step-function improvement in efficiency could have on access to healthcare (through more capacity), quality of healthcare services (through reduced wait times for patients) or cost (through better utilization of scarce, expensive assets). The opportunity of improving operational efficiency in health systems is plainly visible - a quick walk around any hospital or clinic will show the obvious symptoms: waiting rooms filled with people while the very piece of equipment for which they are waiting remains idle and patients spending 90 minutes or more to obtain a quick consultation or a check of their v...

How Data Science Is Transforming Cancer Treatment Scheduling | @CloudExpo #Cloud #BigData

How Data Science Is Transforming Cancer Treatment Scheduling By Mohan Giridharadas, Founder & CEO, LeanTaaS iQueue Anyone who has ever had the misfortune of dealing with a cancer diagnosis - either personally or as a caregiver to a friend or loved one - must have at some point wondered why they invariably had to wait well past their treatment appointment time, every time.

The Future of Hospital Operations Looks like 'Air Traffic Control' | @ThingsExpo #IoT #BigData #Analytics

The Future of Hospital Operations Looks like "Air Traffic Control" By Mohan Giridharadas Explosion of data volumes. Interoperability of systems. Large servers in the sky that can analyze enormous amounts of data, compute complex algorithms in real time, and communicate in microseconds. Mobile communication through devices that patients, providers and staff all carry all the time. What does this all mean for hospital operations? Based on working with dozens of hospitals and conversations with 100+ others, we think the near future of hospital operations is quite exciting. Call it wh... (more)

Operating Room Block Scheduling Needs an Overhaul By Sanjeev Agrawal, President and Chief Marketing Officer, LeanTaaS iQueue One minute of utilized operating room (OR) time can be worth more than $70 in revenue and one minute of staffed OR time can cost $50 or more, making underutilized OR time a huge problem. Each year, roughly 51 million surgeries are performed in the 5,000+ hospitals and 5,000+ surgery centers in the U.S. MGMA estimates that the corresponding utilization of operating rooms across these centers is, at best, 55-60 percent. Given that, for each percentage point of ... (more)
