The St. Louis-headquartered SSM Health faced several challenges in its six infusion sites, including unpredictable patient volumes caused by waves of COVID-19 and with major construction that constrained daily operations. The infusion centers, part of SSM Health Cancer Center, also struggled with extremely busy morning rushes followed by slow afternoons that left chairs unused and nursing workloads imbalanced.
To address these challenges, SSM Cancer Center implemented LeanTaaS’ AI-powered technology solution iQueue for Infusion Centers at four SSM Cancer Center infusion sites, beginning in 2019 and continuing throughout the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing surges.
In this session, the Director of Clinical Services at SSM Health explains how the organization adapted iQueue to meet not only the existing operational challenges but the compounding factors of the pandemic. With iQueue, SSM Cancer Center saw significant improvement in their operational agility, patient volumes and afternoon appointment utilization, including maintaining appointment availability across the health system despite closing several chairs for construction and social distancing.
