Forecast UTI: application for predicting Intensive Care Units beds in the context of the covid-19 pandemic
Keywords:Coronavirus Infections, Public Health Surveillance, Forecasting, Unified Health System, Intensive Care Units
In view of the need to manage and forecast the number of beds in the Intensive Care Units for critically ill patients in Covid-19, the Forecast UTI was developed: an open access application that allows the monitoring of hospital indicators based on historical data from the service health and the temporal dynamics of the epidemic. It is also possible to make short-term forecasts of the number of beds occupied daily by the disease and to establish possible care scenarios. This article presents the functions, mode of access and examples of use of Forecast UTI, a computational tool capable of assisting managers of public and private hospitals in the Unified Health System, since they support decision-making quickly, strategically and efficiently.
