Coronavirus research.

Working with Public Health England and the NHS in the East of England on responses to COVID-19 (coronavirus). A team of a dozen faculty and PhD students at Cambridge Judge Business School is working with Public Health England and the NHS in the East of England on several projects relating to responding to the coronavirus response. The projects look at how COVID-19 is affecting the East of England, in order to better plan for capacity at various facilities.

The projects are expected to last for several months, and there are no results ready to be announced at this point. Specifically, the projects focus on: short-term projections of hospital bed and intensive care capacity requirements for COVID-19 patients in the East of Englandmedium-term modeling of disease progression and health system usage in the East of England, and in particular the timing and strength of peak resource usagemodelling the effects of policy interventions, such as school closures and lock-downs, on COVID-19-related local health resource usage in both primary and secondary careidentifying lead indicators of future local flare-ups of COVID-19 clusters from primary…

By working closely with local hospitals and GPs, researchers at the University of Cambridge are developing bold new ideas they believe will help the NHS thrive for decades to come. Alongside the Chinese People's Liberation Army, Indian Railways and Walmart, the NHS ranks among the world's largest employers. In England, it treats more than 1.4 million patients every 24 hours and will this year spend £126 billion. But as communities gathered to celebrate the NHS's 70th birthday in 2018, reports continued to emerge on the ailing health of this much-loved national institution. Analysis by another national treasure, the BBC, revealed that nearly one in five hospital trusts were failing to hit any of their key waiting-time targets. Hospitals seemed to be lurching towards over-crowded A&Es, bed shortages and queuing ambulances unable to hand over their patients. Two University of Cambridge researchers have a grand vision to rethink the system to make it fit for the next 70 years – a vision that's rooted in research with local patients and doctors. Professor Stefan Scholtes works at Cambridge Judge Business School and Dr Alexander Komashie…
