Bustle emergency hospital can be predicted with site visit




Swedish scientists have found a link between visiting a website for medical assistance and the number of people then visit the emergency room. The calculation model may be used to predict the bustle in the hospital.

The study was conducted by researchers at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. They looked or pressed the emergency in Swedish hospitals can be predicted based on the numbers of visitors to the Stockholm Health Care Guide website. This site was created to provide people with medical information. The hypothesis of the scientists was that people first look up information before they visit the emergency department of the hospital.

To test their hypothesis, a statistical model was constructed that was unleashed on a dataset with web and pressed the emergency rooms of hospitals participating in Sweden. In a later phase, the computational model was used on the basis of the number of visitors to the Stockholm Healthcare Guide to predict the crowds in hospitals.

The study shows that there is a strong link between site visits and hospital crowds. According to scientists, the proposed model is useful for predicting the crowds at the emergency room. However, it is unclear to what extent the relationship found applicable in other countries. The model has not been validated externally. Additionally involved a retrospective study in which the established relationships only correlations can be demonstrated and no causality.
