The number of COVID-19 infections (caused by the Corona-Virus SARS-CoV 2) is developing in a highly dynamic way with strong regional differences. One of the largest challenges faced by the regional and state emergency response units, the hospitals and medical clinics, the local emergency services and medics, is to adjust priorities and resource plans according to the constantly changing situation. One of the key planning and response challenges is to adjust available resources according to the number of hospital emergency cases, in-patients, intensive care beds or respiratory devices.
The aim of this project is to make tools available to help assist estimation of the number of patients and cases as described above according to local regions and the developing situation. The estimates are based on daily statistics of confirmed SARS-CoV 2 infections for each region, the rate of infection changes, and the cumulative pressure these numbers place on the different medical services (e.g. intensive care beds or respiratory devices).
Covidcare (this application) is unique because it not only takes into consideration the number of new patients and cases, but also the number of patients that can be released from your infrastructure and services. You can also predict the upcoming cumulative occupancy of the different resources such as intensive care beds or respiratory devices to assist with resource planning and allocation.
