LeanTaaS Preps for Major Expansion in 2020 Following Record Year of Growth
"2019 marked a year of incredible growth for the company," said Mohan Giridharadas, founder and CEO of LeanTaaS. "Today's hospitals and health systems are looking to treat more patients with the resources in which they have already invested, and our solutions have repeatedly proven themselves with the biggest names in healthcare. We look forward to another groundbreaking year of helping to solve the very real and difficult problem of underutilization of resources in our healthcare system."
Key milestones include:
The fight against cancer: iQueue for Infusion Centers is now being used by 21 National Comprehensive Cancer Network locations, 32 National Cancer Institute-recognized organizations, and 11 of the top 20 cancer hospitals, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.
In the operating room: iQueue for Operating Rooms now directly manages almost 1,100 operating rooms throughout the country. Many health systems report improvements in OR utilization of 3% to 6%. On average, that translates to a financial impact of approximately $500,000 per OR per year. A Pacific Northwest-based health system reported an additional 390,000 minutes of OR capacity due to iQueue.
New funding round: In December, LeanTaaS announced it secured $40 million in funding from Goldman Sachs to bolster R&D and talent acquisition. The company is actively recruiting across all areas following a year-long hiring spree that saw more than 100 employees join LeanTaaS in 2019. This C3 Series round brings the total raised in the last 24 months to over $100 million.
Growing industry recognition: In February, CB Insights named LeanTaaS to its 2019 CB Insights AI 100 list of most innovative artificial intelligence startups. In November, Healthcare Innovation recognized the company as the winner in the Data Analytics category of its 2019 Innovator Awards.
