Saving lives during a global pandemic through medical resource optimization

Analytical Models can project the impact of a disease outbreak and quantify the impact of public health mitigation strategies on the population.

SAS provides these resources for specific modeling and research purposes and are available on GitHub.

Models help forecast the number of bed and ventilator needed and predict impacts on critical supply chains, finance and staff to optimize hospital preparedness before, during and after regional peaks.


Mark Lambrecht and Sherrine Eid discussed some frontline use cases.

The session comprised two 20-minute talks followed by Q&A.
