EDINBURGH, Scotland--November 22, 2022 — Blackford, the strategic imaging AI platform and solutions provider, and Equium Intelligence today announced their partnership to make resourcEQ Forecast and resourcEQ Optimize available on the Blackford Platform to help with radiology department workflow, scheduling, and staffing decisions.
"Balancing excellent patient care with radiology department efficiency is increasingly challenging, with staff burnout a continuing issue,” said Blackford Founder and CEO Ben Panter. “We’re excited to add Equium’s operational AI to the Blackford Platform and help administrators extract actionable insights to effectively address utilization, scheduling, and workforce planning within their departments.”
Equium’s resourcEQ products help administrators create high-performing departments by adapting resources to short-and long-term forecasts. This enables administrators and schedulers to stay ahead of shifting demand while maximizing staff work-life balance.
