Preparing for a Tripledemic: Resource Planning in the Face of Covid-19 / Flu / RSV

Resource Planning in the Face of RSV, COVID-19 and the Flu—and the Challenges to Getting it Right

Is your hospital prepared for the Tripledemic wave? Experts believe COVID-19 is here to stay, joining the flu, RSV, and other respiratory viruses that will impact healthcare facilities around the world.

Hospitals face a mounting and growing challenge to match bed capacity needs with census. Patient staffing and operational needs are further complicated by seasonality, such as the Flu, surges and unexpected crises. Without accurate forecasting, hospitals face surgical procedure cancellations, unnecessary diversions, sub-optimal nursing coverage all of which lead to either exorbitant cost and/or a decrease in the standard of care. And in the case of master planning, inaccurate forecasting and capacity estimates can lead to too little or too much of a major capital expense for construction or rehab projects.
