Non-Profit Health System Elevates AI Strategy to Enhance Patient and Staff Experiences by Optimizing OR Time

San Francisco, CA, April 15, 2024 — Qventus, Inc. announced today that Banner Health, one of the largest non-profit health systems in the country, has chosen the Qventus Perioperative Solution to maximize operating room access, increase strategic case growth, and provide actionable, real-time insights. The solution has enabled them to continue delivering high-level patient care while streamlining technology to improve surgical scheduling and utilization. Due to initial success and double-digit return on investment, Banner is currently in the process of expanding the use of the Qventus Perioperative Solution enterprise-wide.

With Qventus, Banner has launched new applications for surgical teams to have real-time access to OR schedules. Bi-directionally integrated into the EHR, the software provides a comprehensive view of OR availability to schedule cases in time slots that may otherwise go unused. By harnessing predictive analytics and utilizing an extensive dataset, including exclusive external market data, for model training, hospital leadership can deliver actionable insights that drive more utilization and care for more patients. Through AI, machine learning, personalization, and automation, Banner was able to reduce staff burden by eliminating manual tasks. The solutions’ recommended actions are automatically tied to their strategic objectives.

“Surgical demand is on the rise,” said Dr. Nirav Patel, Medical Director, Surgical and Procedural Services, Banner Health. “Qventus automations helped us identify where OR time was going unused, freeing up those spaces for patients who need it. Their technology has improved our efficiencies, allowing us to predict and meet the evolving needs of our patients seeking timely, compassionate care.”

As Qventus CEO, Mudit Garg, shared, “I am incredibly proud to see the impactful results of our partnership with Banner Health. By implementing the Qventus Perioperative Solution, Banner Health has taken a significant step forward in enhancing surgical efficiencies and ultimately improving patient and staff experiences. Our solution’s seamless integration into their ecosystem has enabled Banner Health to unlock actionable insights in real-time, optimize OR utilization, and deliver care for more patients.
