WINNER: Predicting 999 Ambulance Demand Modelling: KPMG and South Central Ambulance Service FT

Everyone knows that demand for ambulances varies over time – but the details of that variance are not well understood. An analytics project undertaken by KMPG working with South Central Ambulance Service Foundation Trust could help all ambulance services plan better and deploy resources to meet these variations.

Ambulance services need to understand not only how overall demand varies over time but also how the clinical response needed changes. Changing demand for different clinical response groups affects what resources the service needs to have in place. Getting the right CRG to a patient incident can make the difference between life and death by ensuring staff with the right capabilities are used for each call out.
