BluPanda is passionate about finding new ways to Improve the Human Condition in healthcare. We care deeply about every patient’s experience because we’ve spent a lot of time with our own loved ones waiting to receive care in your hospitals. We spent two years as part time volunteers at a Level I Trauma Center in Pittsburgh working side by side with doctors and nurses to understand the frustrations and challenges of trying to deliver the best quality care, more efficiently, to more patients than ever before. We understand, we care, and we can help.
Every hospital wants to be as efficient as a factory, but how can they coordinate the work of hundreds of clinicians to achieve factorylike efficiency? Everyone already has a smartphone. Our idea is to take all of those smartphones that are already out there, link them all together to make a virtual production line, and run that virtual production line with sophisticated robotics software, just like factories do.
Unlike manufacturing environments, in which sophisticated software systems manage standard production processes, healthcare facilities are manually managed by doctors and nurses - often using little more than white boards, telephones and pagers.
The new science of automated management is about managing and measuring standardized healthcare processes. BluPanda's platform automates the management of any healthcare process through an intelligent server that connects teams of clinicians through a set of easy-to-use collaborative apps.
BluPanda automates the management of any of the key processes that define healthcare delivery: admitting a patient, treating a patient, discharging a patient, coordinating with the patient’s family, delivering discharge instructions, and providing patient education, just to name a few. With BluPanda’s platform, doctors, nurses, patients, and their families can all connect, collaborate, and contribute their part to the efficient execution of a healthcare process.
BluPanda’s software enables team of clinicians to work together. As they work together, our platform also uses statistical process control and machine learning technologies to learn from the team… carefully analyzing what works and what doesn’t, enabling targeted, iterative process improvement. With BluPanda, the team’s performance just gets better and better.

We like each other… a lot. BluPanda was founded by a team of serial entrepreneurs who have worked together in the Pittsburgh robotics start-up scene since 2005. Prior to BluPanda, we were all part of HyperActive Technologies… and two of us (Coulter and Kauffman) worked together at another prior start-up, Tpresence, Inc. Those experiences taught us a lot about how to build highly scalable robotic software systems… and they also taught us a lot about each other. How to care for one another, how to keep family first, and how to stay committed to helping others even in the face of great adversity.
