Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and Palantir Technologies Inc.

Tampa General, one of the nation’s leading academic health systems, plans to deploy Palantir’s Artificial Intelligence Platform (AIP) to deliver a Care Coordination Operating System, which will securely encode Tampa General’s domain expertise, real-time situational awareness, and large-language models into decision-support tools to power eligibility and prioritization workflows for frontline teams across all aspects of care operations. TGH will also leverage this platform to bring automation to other system workflows, including streamlining revenue cycle management.

Tampa General will use AIP to encode its clinical expertise into eligibility and prioritization decisions on the frontlines, to ensure patients receive the right care in the right place as quickly and safely possible. Its new Hospital Sync application suite and insights, powered by Palantir software, aims to set the standard for optimal care coordination nationwide.

Tampa General Hospital and Palantir Technologies started working together in 2021, when TGH implemented Palantir’s Foundry software to revolutionize health care management, optimize operational efficiency and enhance patient outcomes. Since then, Tampa General has expanded its use of Palantir’s software from one to more than a dozen use cases across the health system, contributing to meaningful, measurable improvements in patient care. For example, Tampa General cut by 83% the amount of time required to place patients and post anesthesia care unit (PACU) holds declined 28%. In addition, the mean length of stay for sepsis patients went down 30%.

“We are on a mission to transform health care through innovation, and Palantir’s technology platforms enable us to leverage data to improve quality and strengthen our operations,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General Hospital. “Less time waiting for placement and a reduced length of stay does not just enhance the patient experience, it gives us an opportunity to treat more patients that need care. These improvements, powered by data and technology, contribute to better and more robust treatment plans, which in turn, can lead to better patient outcomes.”

“Our partnership is proving that software is vital for overcoming many of the most pressing healthcare challenges that we collectively face,” said Alex Karp, co-founder and chief executive officer of Palantir Technologies Inc. “Tampa General has become an industry leader in leveraging technology to deliver even further improvements in patient care.”

Palantir’s engineers will continue working closely with Tampa General’s operations, analytics, and clinical subject matter experts as part of this next phase. In addition to the expanded partnership, Palantir will be joining the Tampa Medical and Research District, which boasts a variety of health care organizations from academics and clinical care to research and biotechnology, in the heart of Tampa Bay. The District, which is anchored by Tampa General and the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, is the driving force behind Tampa’s growing reputation as a global destination for world-class care.
