Forecasting the capacity and predicting the patient load for COVID hospital – Part 1

As some of you are aware, one of the projects we have in DHIndia is Forecasting Capacity for designated select COVID hospitals up to 30 days in advance. We have successfully helped 3 districts with this service. In order to explain the service and to present the case studies I am sharing a series of 4 videos. Starting with Part 1 of the series which explains the IDSP program and the figures being published about positives and mortality rates. The remaining parts will take each of these 3 districts and explain what we did and how we helped them.
