Updated AHA COVID-19 Modeling Compendium Includes Recovery Calculators

Updated AHA COVID-19 Modeling Compendium Includes Recovery Calculators. Data connected in a circle.Want to know how long it will take to clear the backlog of postponed surgical procedures due to ordered shutdowns during the pandemic? A newly revised AHA resource, “COVID-19 Tools: Forecasting the Pandemic’s Spread and Planning for Recovery,” includes links to two new online calculators to do just that.

The analysis is based on the magnitude of the backlog and recovery strategies hospitals can undertake post-pandemic (e.g., increasing volumes and/or extending operating hours).

The resource also connects hospitals and health systems with modeling resources to assist with case projection and capacity planning, community vulnerability maps and case mapping, and projection tools.
