Daten der Spitalinfrastruktur

Datensatzen über die verfügbare medizinische Infrastrukturen und Kapazitäten in der Schweiz


Data on hospital infrastructure

Collaboration on a dataset on available infrastructure and bed capacity for medical facilities in Switzerland.

⚙ Repository ✍️ Notebook ►Presentation


The current mitigation strategy of COVID-19 is to "flatten the curve", which means to decrease the daily case load below a threshold level. This threshold is given by the maximum capacity of the health care system. To inform models with meaningful parameters we need detailed data on hospital infrastructure and bed capacities by hospital. This challenge aims to combine data on the capacities of the Swiss health care system from different sources and to produce an open and free data set, which can be used to inform modelling and public health strategies. Current Indicators, Methods and Data sources of interest are listed below, mirrored in our repository, where we also have an Issue tracker with open tasks.

Status

We started a collaborative effort to establish a common data set where the community can contribute data in a moderated way. To contribute, you can:

  1. View the crowdsourced Data Package and OGD Data Schema to check the data baseline.
  2. Use our Online Form to submit individual data points or corrections.
  3. Visit the Issue Tracker to find out how you could contribute to automation & validation.
  4. Explore visualizations (ETH) and models (neherlab, plotti) that use this data.
  5. Join our Team Chat if you have any other questions or suggestions.

Indicators of interest

  • N of hospitals in CH (with name and geolocation)
  • N of beds by hospital
  • N of ICU beds by hospital
  • N of respirators by hospital
  • average % bed availability pre-COVID-19 ("Bettenauslastung") by hospital
  • N ICU nurses by hospital ("IPS Pflege")

An idea of the basic workflow we have in mind:

Data sources

Swiss Hospital Data

This is a collaborative effort to establish a common data set about Swiss public medical infrastructure, where the community can contribute and manage data in a moderated way. Our goal is to improve the transparency and efficiency of data exchange about basic indicators, expanding on the existing available open government data.

This project was started at the Monitoring COVID-19 effects (#covid19mon) hackathon. Visit our challenge page for further details and tasks, some of which are in our current notes and backed up here. Please suggest additional data sources and ideas in the issue tracker.

Data

There is an initial Data Package which can be previewed here.

Please see the data folder to see all the datasets that we are working on.

Instructions: Accessible data files (ideally in simple data formats such as CSV, JSON and GeoJSON), as well as the raw data, are placed in the data folder. In this section you should mention the files and formats included. It is good to suggest purposes for this data, such as example applications or use cases. Include any relevant background, contact points, and links that may help people to use this data. You can find examples of this at datahub.io or github.com/datasets, and further tips at frictionlessdata.io and datahub.io.

Preparation

Details of what data we are using and how we are preparing it can be found in our notes.

Instructions: describe here where you obtained the data, how it was created, where and how it was extracted, and any transformation steps that took place during publication. Link to the sources, as well as to any tools that were used. If you used any scripts to extract and convert the data, add them to a script folder in your repository.

License

The licensing terms of this dataset have not yet been established. If you intend to use these data in a public or commercial product, check with each of the data sources for any specific restrictions.

This Data Package is made available by its maintainers under the Public Domain Dedication and License v1.0, a copy of the full text of which is in LICENSE.md.
