Modelling Home and Community Care


The Home and Community Care (HCC) branch of health care deals with individuals who require long-term non-hospitalized care. As various demographic factors change, the demand for this form of care will also change. The goal of this project is to develop predictive models that can be used to help explore how HCC will be impacted over the next 10 to 20 years. Of particular interest is how HCC system will be impacted by the increase in average age of British Columbia's population. Future work will refine these models and develop new models for other aspects of the health care system.
