Inpatient Care:

PIH is currently working towards creating dashboard with the following indicators to track inpatient care at facilities: 

Inpatient Indicator

How this helps

Current and trend in occupancy of beds in the COVID-19 UMI ward.

Monitoring capacity to care for the volume of patients and flagging need for either setting up additional facilities or planning to return ICU beds to other types of patients.

Trend in # screening PCR tests positive

Monitoring the overall trend of the pandemic - whether to plan ahead and allocate resources to handle more cases, hold steady, or prepare to transition resources back to other types of care.

Proportion of patients with comorbidities that will affect their care

Determine reasons for severity and the types of expertise and supportive care needed.

Symptoms of confirmed cases, histogram

Feed back to screening process to prioritize people with matching symptom profiles.

Current and trend of patients on oxygen

Compare to oxygen supply chain to look for risk of running short or having overstock.

Hospital staff testing positive, trend

To determine if facility has the staff capacity to manage the care needs

Patient outcomes, by type over time
