LeanTaaS, Inc., a market leader in providing AI-powered and SaaS-based capacity management, staffing, and patient flow software for health systems, today announced a new strategic relationship with Siemens Healthineers, a leading medical technology company. Under the terms of the agreement, this relationship will help enable large hospitals and health systems within the Siemens Healthineers network drive outcomes, including improved patient access, physician and staffing satisfaction, and financial performance. The Siemens Healthineers network can now deploy system-wide tools designed to optimize capacity supported by the powerful combination of LeanTaaS’ Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) -based predictive and prescriptive analytics solutions and the enterprise-wide management expertise from Siemens Healthineers.
The healthcare industry continues to address the hurdles of high inflation rates and labor shortages — creating a critical need for health systems to optimize operational performance this year and beyond. This collaboration will provide Siemens Healthineers’ 3,000+ hospital and health system customers with the opportunity to overcome operational challenges by converting vast amounts of real-time performance data into prescriptive actions that help unlock capacity and throughput across: perioperative, staffing, inpatient flow, infusion centers, and enterprise-wide virtual command centers.
“This agreement reflects our shared vision to help health systems transform the delivery of care for all the lives they touch,” said David Pacitti, President of Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. and Head of the Americas, Siemens Healthineers. “Working together brings breakthrough opportunities to deliver outcomes that help solve staffing challenges, improve margins, and increase access to care that are meaningful for both patients and providers.”
Siemens Healthineers and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), as part of a 10-year Value Partnership, implemented LeanTaaS’ AI/ML-driven workflows for proactive capacity management across the MUSC Charleston Division. Since launch, the collaboration has helped MUSC expand access to care by more than 1,000 cases cumulatively over baseline and orthopedic volume has grown 8% year-over-year across all campuses, among other meaningful results.
“Hospitals and health systems are a decade behind other industries in digital transformation and we have to catch up to deliver the best quality care and financial sustainability. That’s why we’ve embraced this relationship with Siemens Healthineers and LeanTaaS, who have quickly and seamlessly integrated this platform and enabled us to drive near-immediate value,” said Dr. David Zaas, CEO, Charleston Division and Chief Clinical Officer, MUSC Health. “This isn’t about technology; it’s about transforming care delivery to be safer and more efficient. We can’t do that on our own and we need complimentary solutions to EHR platforms and existing capabilities. We needed to be in a bigger ecosystem to leverage the best technology, change our culture, and drive processes to yield improved outcomes, and that’s exactly what we’ve been able to do.”
“Both companies are synonymous with delivering proven outcomes and ROI for health systems,” said Mohan Giridharadas, LeanTaaS Founder and CEO. “Together, we’ll make it easier for health systems to know what’s coming and get more out of their existing assets by unlocking capacity, generating new sources of revenue, streamlining resource allocation and deployment, increasing throughput, and decreasing delays in all major areas of a hospital. We are excited to collaborate with the Siemens Healthineers team to create long-lasting, meaningful change for health systems at such a critical time in the industry.”
