How does your hospital evaluate and predict fluctuations in service demand and
effectively plan hospital resource capacity?
Care demand changes throughout the year and health systems often face a backlog in elective surgeries, interventions and imaging procedures when surges occur. Recent experience with the pandemic demonstrated just how fragile the balance between capacity and demand can be if healthcare systems are not built to be adaptable.
Our modeling tools for hospital capacity planning help quantify and visualize potential disconnects between care demand and available capacity to fulfill those care requirements. We help you gain insight into the extent of care that is pending, combined with the potential influx of new patients. We then model different scenarios to evaluate how this demand can be accommodated with the available or augmented resources - equipment, space, operating hours, and care providers. Data of the various assumptions for care demand and hospital capacity is fed into our modeling tools and provides a customized insight into the impact that deviations from planned demand can have on your hospital capacity management.
