University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics: Big data analytics transforms the operating room

"Predictive analytics is allowing us to deal with the ever-increasing types of data that healthcare institutions need to deal with." - Dr. John Cromwell, Director of Gastrointestinal Surgery, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics

A surgical team at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics used Statistica to analyze data and make real-time predictions in the operating room, cutting surgical site infections by 58% and lowering the hospital’s costs. Statistica helped achieve this result by:

  • Delivering predictive analytics in a challenging hospital environment
  • Merging historical and live patient data to predict susceptibility to infection
  • Personalizing healthcare based on a patient’s own characteristics
  • Running predictive models and results from mobile applications and web browsers
