Paul Elbers has been a Specialist since 2009 and works at Amsterdam UMC. As an intensivist, he treats the most vulnerable patients. A position where you can make a difference for patients and families. With a view to a possible new corona wave this autumn, optimal use of the IC capacity is 'essential', according to Paul Elbers, which is why he would like to enter into a conversation with you to promote innovative solutions.

Amsterdam UMC


Amsterdam UMC has a 'worldwide first' by using software with artificial intelligence in the decision-making process of an intensive care physician. The developed model can collect up to 30,000 data points per intensive care patient daily and advises whether a patient can be transferred to a nursing ward. The software has a significant impact because moving too early from the intensive care unit is very risky for the patient. Staying in the ICU for too long is not only annoying and costly for the patient, but it also means that the bed in question cannot be used for another patient who may need it much more. A well-considered decision, therefore, ensures both better care and cost optimisation.
