Covid-19 Incident Command | Qventus, Inc.


AI-based rapid response solutions to expand effective capacity

Watch our on-demand webinar on mitigating Covid resource constraints

With hospitals urgently looking to mitigate surge demand, Qventus Covid-19 capacity solutions can be deployed rapidly, in just weeks, to help Incident Command Centers find immediate opportunities to unlock capacity across the system – without adding to frontline burden.

From flattening the curve to expanding effective capacity with efficient patient flow


Slowing the spread of the pandemic can significantly reduce the strain on our health system. But beyond flattening the curve, hospitals can take additional measures to expand effective capacity by optimizing patient flow. In fact, in many locations, efficient patient flow can actually create a significant amount of capacity to satisfy COVID-19 demand – without requiring additional staff.


Incident Command Solutions for Rapid Capacity Creation

  • Critical Resource Mission Control

    Gain real time visibility into critical resources for rapid load balancing

  • ICU Capacity Creation

    Relieve pressure from ICUs by prioritizing key patients for stepdown

  • Med-Surg Capacity Creation

    Expedite discharge for clinically ready patients to create downstream capacity

Critical Resource Mission Control

Qventus creates real time visibility for critical resources so that teams can rapidly orchestrate action and load-balance to mitigate constraints:

  • Real time situational awareness across multiple altitudes (facility and system) for negative airflow isolation, ventilators, ICU beds, and more

  • Covid-19 Scenario Planner forecasts integrated to identify and predict resource shortages

  • Automated real time nudges to resolve capacity constraints and load balance across the organization

ICU Capacity Creation

Up to one third of ICU patients are ready to step down 8-12 hours before transfer orders are placed, but Incident Command Centers typically have limited visibility into these opportunities. Qventus relieves pressure from ICUs by intelligently prioritizing patients for stepdown:

  • ML-driven early recommendations of ICU patients ready for stepdown (~90% of early stepdown candidates)

  • Clear visibility into stepdown barriers so that physicians can review and expedite transfers

  • Automated real time nudges to surface potential delayed stepdowns

Med-Surg Capacity Creation

With traditional discharge processes heavily strained during a pandemic, Qventus allows Incident Command Centers to identify discharge opportunities across the facility for teams to expedite and rapidly unlock needed capacity:

  • Daily ML-prioritized discharge lists to identify top Med-Surg candidates – up to 25% more accurately than traditional discharge planning

  • High priority discharge opportunities to unlock key resources such as ventilators, negative airflow rooms, and telemetry beds

  • Automated real time nudges to surface supply & demand mismatches and potential discharge delays
