Mapping local differences and identifying hotspots
In collaboration with researcher Mark Verhagen and health start-up Bits of Care, ahti has developed a dashboard that allows you to map local differences in COVID-19-related pressure risks within the healthcare system. The dashboard allows you to see which regions, municipalities or neighbourhoods are most likely to have serious healthcare needs in the event of a second wave. In other words, where do the people at most risk of admission to hospital or even intensive care live? The researchers are using microdata from Statistics Netherlands on variables such as age, population density and socioeconomic status (SES). The difference between this dashboard and others is that it is focused on prevention rather than current infections.
