Legende

Solution

  • Different groups are assigned risk weights (e.g. healthy non-smokers younger 50: 1; lung cancer patients older than 85: 8.55)
  • All weights are added up on the basis of available population, disease and smoking data per county
  • The resulting total risk weight of the district is distributed to the intensive care beds available in the district
  • The districts are divided into three classes: The risk burden of a district in relation to its intensive care capacities can now be intuitively determined
