Patient-flow modelling and resource demand prediction during COVID-19
Hospitals worldwide faced an unprecedented and uncertain influx of patients with a high-resource consumption during the first wave of COVID-19.
Hospitals were required to make regional predictions on hospital admission and resource requirements to plan, prepare and respond to the crisis.
This presentation aims to provide insights based on the experience and modelling efforts of Addenbrookes Hospital, based in Cambridge (UK), to predict local hospital admissions, model patient flows through the hospital and estimate subsequent use of resources.
