Rush Medical University in Chicago together with Microsoft team has developed an app COVID-19 Resource calculator to forecast the patient's admission, medical inventories, and beds, based on applicable growth models (the models differs from state to state). This app is running in Azure – you can see it here: http://covid19forecast.rush.edu/.
The goal of this calculator is to allow a hospital to understand its resource use and demand, such as beds, ICU beds, ventilators, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
This calculator is effective for calculating the number of net new COVID-19 patients seen by a system each day, and how many of these patients will be in a hospital census over time - average length of stay (LOS).
It also can help to forecast the demand for PPE over time based on patient volume.
It can help forecast daily bed needs by bed type (non-ICU and ICU) along with the project number of vents.
The calculator was developed for the USA, based on the data provided by CDC USA, but it can be localized for Czech Republic.
It’s build for Azure and except the small Azure consumption, there is no extra cost for the customer – we offer it for free.
