Computers can manage hospitals better than people. BluPanda was formed by a team of robotics and computer scientists from Carnegie Mellon to automate the management and measurement of key healthcare processes, such as patient flow, patient risk, and patient care supply purchasing. Our intelligent software manages and assists teams of clinicians to carry out the steps of a standardized process, such as admitting a patient from the Emergency Department. Machine learning systems, integrated into the platform, learn how to make key process decisions better than people, while statistical process control technologies measure and monitor process performance, to determine, in real-time where the process works, where it’s broken, and how it can be improved. Management Automation measures, monitors, manages, and learns better and better processes to make your hospital safer, more efficient, and less costly to operate.
BluPanda builds new process management software, deploys it to hospitals, and delivers continual process improvements insights. We work with large and small hospitals, insurance providers, healthcare IT companies, and anyone else who is interested in substantially improving healthcare efficiency, safety, and experience. Tell us about a process that you would like to see better managed and we’ll help you get there.
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.
