The report shows that Ahus HF, despite the high capacity utilisation had overcrowding of beds in large parts of the year 2012. For outpatient, surgical and diagnostic imaging device was sufficient capacity if you had a high capacity utilization. For day areas and dialysis capacity it was overcapacity.
The demographic changes over time reinforces this image. In 2020, a scenario with high conversion and transfer of activity to municipalities will not be sufficient to avoid the capacity of beds. With the exception of day areas and dialysis sites, there is an increased capacity needed for important functions such as surgery and imaging.
Ahus HF has implemented several measures to improve the situation. Especially for patient flow in the emergency department, there seems to be room for improvement
