The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) COVID-19 model

Insights on:

  • Usefulness of forecasting to plan for a surge in demand for hospitals’ resources (e.g., beds, ICUs, ventilators) to fight COVID-19,
  • With many locations passing their first peak of COVID-19 deaths, how best to prevent and manage a resurgence of the disease while safely enabling people to get back to work and school.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) has developed a model initially geared to helping hospitals plan for a surge in demand for their resources (e.g., beds, ICUs, ventilators) to fight COVID-19. Early May 2020, it was expanded to account for factors that could contribute to or contain the spread of the disease and account for the possibility of resurgence.

With many locations passing their first peak of COVID-19 deaths, this webinar will provide insights on usefulness of models for how best to prevent and manage a resurgence of the disease while safely enabling people to get back to work and school.
