Summary of "Short and Long term predictions of Hospital emergency department attendances."

Emergency departments in the United Kingdom (UK) experience significant difficulties in achieving the 95% NHS access standard due to unforeseen variations in patient flow. In order to maximize efficiency and minimize clinical risk, better forecasting of patient demand is necessary. The objective is therefore to create a tool that accurately predicts attendance at emergency departments to support optimal planning of human and physical resources.
