CAN helped a regional healthcare system prepare for the 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic. From April 2009 to April 2010 the demand for healthcare spiked putting pressure on nursing staff.

Using predictive analytics CAN developed a staffing plan for a large regional healthcare system with 10 hospitals. Hospitals across the country were hiring as many nurses as they could. A shortage of nurses was quickly developing. Our manager needed to know how many nurses to hirer. He need to optimize his budget to meet the demand without purchasing and holding excess capacity.

Learn how CAN used data from previous flu seasons, nurse schedules, hourly requirements per nurse, training and orientation requirements, and number of active nurse recruiters to forecast demand.
