NEWTON, Mass. (PRWEB) December 13, 2018
Hospital IQ, the leading provider of predictive hospital operations software, today announced that the number of hospitals and health networks using its platform has more than tripled during 2018. The company’s momentum reflects the urgent need for healthcare executives to gain the operational clarity necessary to achieve superior financial and clinical operating performance without additional investments in capacity or staff. Hospital IQ also announced the addition of two industry veterans, Brian Graves, vice president, sales, and Bryan Dickerson, senior director, workforce solutions, to support the company’s continued, rapid growth.
“Healthcare costs are soaring. Hospital leaders are under enormous pressure to reduce costs, grow revenue and still maintain the highest level of patient care,” said Rich Krueger, CEO, Hospital IQ. “Data and data science hold many of the answers, yet most institutions still rely on labor-intensive, error-prone analysis when using data to make decisions.
