THE FUTURE OF ACUTE HEALTHCARE

UMCG, City of Groningen, Hanze UAS, University of Groningen, Province of Groningen and Odyssey invite you to help in the challenge of leveraging the right combination of caregivers, resources and time across the region for patients in order to have optimal accessibility of acute healthcare.

Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

An invitation to get involved

During Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, five selected teams will build new solutions to the challenge of UMCG, City of Groningen, Hanze UAS, University of Groningen, Province of Groningen and Odyssey. The most important result is that these new solutions are valuable for you.
Therefore, UMCG, City of Groningen, Hanze UAS, University of Groningen, Province of Groningen and Odyssey are inviting hospitals, (data) scientists, emergency room staff, policymakers, ambulance drivers, and many other stakeholders to work with the teams, be the first to test and give feedback to the solutions, and then help launch the best solutions after the event.

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP

The pressure on the acute healthcare network has been mounting. During the 2017-2018 flu epidemic, emergency departments were overcrowded. Multidisciplinary triage teams need support to decide where patients will go. All actors want to share their care capacity (available beds, operating rooms, staff) and demands (patient that needs X care). Our region needs a way to anticipate and plan for our future acute healthcare.
Healthcare Impact

Impact

Great (predictive) capacity coordination, results in better acute care for patients and more efficient use of the available resources (personnel and available beds) in a region in a sustainable way.

Long term: availability of scenario’s predicting care demand, resulting in better planning of entire new healthcare systems.

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING

The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them:

“Create an infrastructure for capacity coordination with the ability of predictive scenario planning for the acute care system to enable every patient to receive the best acute care path at the right time and in the right place from the right caregiver given the available resources.”

Find out what each team is building and which part of the problem they are tackling, and how you can contribute.
