SSM Health struggled with extremely busy morning rushes that were followed by slow afternoons, which led to imbalanced nurses workloads and nurses missing their breaks. Efficiency and throughput was also hampered by major pharmacy bottlenecks and major constructions that constrained daily operations.


iQueue for Infusion Centers was implemented at four SSM cancer centers during a difficult 2 years of COVID-19 surges, and as a result they saw significant improvement in their operational agility, patient volumes, wait times, afternoon appointment utilization and overall nurse satisfaction. SSM had to close several chairs at their Kisker clinic due to a construction project, and successfully shifted appointments to a nearby site using iQueue templates to maintain patient care.
