System and Method for optimal positioning of medical emergency vehicle centers

Disclosed is a method and system to mine medical data for a specific location and to analyze emergency patterns to further determine the best location for emergency dispatch centers.

The following are key characteristics of the disclosed system and method:
Based on mining historic data for Priority 1 and Priority 2 medical emergency vehicle


a.

call outs, which locations in a town/city that these occurred, the system predicts

where these event will most likely occur in the future.

Analyses based on these predicted future events identified an expected call out time. The system then determines if the expected call out time will be greater than the allotted call out time for high severity medical emergencies.

Finally the system infers from a. and b. whether the current location is optimal or not. If not, the system will then determine where the optimal center should be located.

This system may be complimented by a number of visual queue's, for example if the number of call outs begins to exceed a required time, a slider may be implemented and depict moving from green to red to indicate how close the medical dispatch center is from exceeding it's threshold.

In the interests of brevity, only one implementation is described herein. Figure 1 depicts a layout of dispatch centers and Priority 1 and 2 ambulance call outs.
