Title: Short Term Inpatient Bed Prediction
Description: This paper presents a useful method for predicting inpatient beds on different units of the hospital using real time data. Historical lengths of stay, occupancy, and other standards were used to translate future activity into bed need. Different and more comprehensive appropriate models for various admit sources such as OR, ED and Direct Admits were developed. These include analyses of the variability attributed to day of week and holidays. A different model is made to cater the requirements of the inpatient admits and discharges for each admit source on each unit of the hospital.
