New COVID-19 suite now in Piano
Today we made available COVID-19 research suite for free to all Piano users. The COVID-19 suite is designed to assist hospitals manage aspects of the disease in real time by providing the research infrastructure to inform patient triage, bed allocation, medications/treatments, and staffing levels. Piano users can now find the following new projects in the Project Library:
This project shows the number of patients with suspected (SNOMED-CT 840544004) and confirmed (SNOMED-CT 840539006) COVID-19 cases.
This project allows hospitals to monitor workload and resource requirements
This project enables evidence based near-term predictions about future demand.
COVID-19 Patient Characteristics:
Breakdown of age, co-morbidities, procedures, observations and medication, for patients with identified COVID-19 compared to other patient cohorts
This project keeps Emergency departments, Intensive Care Units and hospital administrators informed as more is learned about the disease.
This project provides the evidence hospitals need to adapt policies for triage, admissions, bed management, and discharge in a rapidly changing environment.
Comparison of suspected and confirmed COVID-19 patients by intervention.
This protocol can be easily customized to look at different interventions, compare with different groups, different outcome measures.
Out of the box outcomes are length of stay, risk of transfer to ICU, risk of developing pneumonia and death.
