Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is one of 72 elite NCI-designated Cancer Centers in the entire country and the only adult center designation in Tennessee and one of 33 NCCN Member Institutions.

- High patient wait times
- Nurses frequently missing lunches
- Desire to increase capacity but unable to do so pre-iQueue
- Unable to balance capacity between oncology and non-oncology infusions
Prior to implementation, Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center had a desire and need to increase capacity with the inability to do so on their own. With the implementation of iQueue for Infusion Centers, they were able to unlock additional capacity utilizing the same number of chairs. Scheduling leaders are able to strategically steer add-ons to level-load the day and leadership analyze data in the tools to see how the month will unfold in order to balance capacity.
