Decision Makers

How CHIME helps you estimate needs

CHIME allows decision makers in hospitals to project the potential burden of inpatient hospitalizations and patients requiring intensive care/mechanical ventilation. This information can be utilized to plan for increased resource needs before your hospital system is overwhelmed (e.g. beds, ICU beds, ventilators, PPE, etc). It also can be used as a tool to estimate the benefits of social distancing in reducing these burdens on health systems, which can be communicated to public health officials or the public at large.
