A Queuing Model for Ventilator Capacity Management during the COVID-19 Pandemic
TLDR
A queue model is presented to inform ventilator capacity management under different COVID-19 pandemic scenarios and provides a tool for policy makers to quantify the interplay between public health interventions, necessary critical care resources, and performance indicators for patient access.
Data-driven Fair Resource Allocation For Novel Emerging Epidemics: A COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Case Study
TLDR
Numerical results from applying the MIP model to a COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma case study suggest that the approach can help balance the supply and demand of limited products such as CCP and minimize the unmet demand ratios of the demand entities.

Real-time forecasting of COVID-19 bed occupancy in wards and Intensive Care Units
This paper presents a mathematical model that provides a real-time forecast of the number of COVID-19 patients admitted to the ward and the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a hospital based on the
Short term hospital occupancy prediction
TLDR
The approach in building a computerized model to provide short-term occupancy predictions for an entire hospital by nursing unit and shift and the results and accuracy are compared to a variety of other predictive methods based on tests using 2 years of actual hospital data.
Hospital length of stay for COVID-19 patients: Data-driven methods for forward planning
TLDR
Overall, it is concluded that data-driven modelling approaches of LoS using these methods is useful in epidemic planning and management, and should be considered for widespread adoption throughout healthcare systems internationally where similar data resources exist.
Hospital Length of Stay For COVID-19 Patients: Data-Driven Methods for Forward Planning
TLDR
The utility of three complementary methods for predicting hospital length of stay (LoS) using UK national- and hospital-level data is demonstrated and data-driven modelling approaches of LoS using these methods is useful in epidemic planning and management and should be considered for widespread adoption throughout healthcare systems internationally where similar data resources exist.
Time-dependent analysis for refused admissions in clinical wards
TLDR
The results show that the effect of the daily pattern is rather limited for clinical wards in contrast to the week-weekend pattern, and show that an increased variability in length of stay distribution has a stabilizing effect on the time-dependent required number of beds.
COVID-19: Forecasting short term hospital needs in France
TLDR
The analysis shows that, even in the best case scenario, the French healthcare system will very soon be overwhelmed and massive reorganization leading to an expansion of French ICU capacities seems to be necessary to manage the coming wave of critically affected COVID-19 patients.
An ensemble approach to short‐term forecast of COVID‐19 intensive care occupancy in Italian regions
TLDR
This work shows a simple strategy for short‐term prediction of COVID‐19 intensive care unit (ICU) beds, that has proved very effective during the Italian outbreak in February to May 2020.
COVID-19: Short-Term Forecast of ICU Beds in Times of Crisis
TLDR
It is shown how the use of analytics can provide relevant support for decision making, even with incomplete data and without enough time to fully explore the numerical properties of all available forecasting methods.
