Regenstrief, IU scientists describe approaches to increase care capacity for COVID-19 patients

As healthcare systems across the country prepared for an influx of patients with COVID-19, Regenstrief Institute and Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI scientists analyzed data to provide advice on the best ways to expand treatment capacity.

The brief report was compiled by Nir Menachemi, PhD, MPH, a Regenstrief scientist and a department head at Fairbanks School of Public Health, and Jyotsna Gutta, MPH, from Fairbanks School of Public Health. The researchers examined available literature to inform decisions on the options of designating non-hospital sites to accommodate additional patients when needed and facilitating regional cooperation among hospitals to efficiently utilize resources.

Dr. Menachemi and Gutta laid out considerations for each model to help decisionmakers as they analyze the options.
