A Governor at the state level or the President at a national level will be enabled to make real-time quick decisions in healthcare management related to,  

1. Capacity - maximizing hospital capacity and manage patient load and shift between hospitals,

2. Equipment - Optimize equipment and PPE supply, 

3. Workforce - Managing No. of Staff and resource allocation (Doctors, Nurses, Respiratory therapists) between hospitals

hence providing zero latency in decision making by commonizing the data collection, analysis, and reporting of information across hospitals (local, private, public) and states.

What is the need are you focusing on?

 Enable Governors / President to make real-time quick decisions in healthcare management related to,  

1. Capacity - maximizing hospital capacity and manage patient load and shift between hospitals (No of hospital beds between hospitals, counties within the states)

2. Equipment - Optimize equipment and PPE supply (Critical needs - Ventilators, Bipap Machines, testing kits; Top Tier Needs - 3M Masks, Surgical Gowns, etc; Second Tier Needs - Hand Sanitizer)

3. Workforce - Managing No. of Staff and resource allocation (Doctors, Nurses, Respiratory therapists) between hospitals



Which type of submission are you sharing?

  • Identifying a gap that needs to be addressed

Describe the business pivot or adaptation in 3-4 sentences.

Who are our users? - A Governor at the state level or the President at a national level - Hospitals - Private and public nationwide. What kind of service, product or organization will it produce? The aim is to create a standardized cloud-based data collection system for hospitals & healthcare systems to enable increased transparency, tracking key metrics, and real time decision making in allocating appropriate resources for Governors and the President during a Pandemic. Impact: Rigorous standardization in data collection, analysis and reporting will enable everyone to be on the same page and enable zero latency in decision making.

Do you plan to implement this solution?

  • I plan to share with an implementing organization

Describe the impact that this solution will create in the world.

Positive Change: 1) Patient survival rate will increase due to quick decision making. 2) Less emotional trauma for hospital workforce because they are not overloaded with work and have the right equipment at the right time to do their job. 3) Government will feel more in control during a future pandemic and will enable quick fact-based decision making. Benefits: All people in the country regardless of race or creed. How many people? Assuming 15% infection rate for a country's population during a pandemic like COVID - say in the US with 350 Million population; could enable 52 Million people appropriate treatment at the right time and reducing the death rate. Timeline: The system could be scaled very quickly - the setup time to customize the needs according to individual hospital could take 1 week. So for 6000 hospitals, assuming a 100 member sales team it could take 12 months to bring a holistic change for >90% adoption rate.

I am an individual consultant for an Engineering firm - hence I do not have easy access to Government or Hospital Stakeholders. Also, to build a database system with enhanced security and architecture, I need the right people in the team and monetary resources.

What do you think are the main barriers to implementing this solution?

Private hospital adoption from existing data entry system into a centralized system might be a barrier. Hence, the government should incentivize them for providing the real-time data.
