Abstract

The level of demand for healthcare services fluctuates widely, putting pressure on the healthcare capacity. This article examines some of the approaches available to healthcare services providers for forecasting future demand. Accurate forecasting of future demand enables healthcare services capacity to be adjusted so as to fit demand. The article also includes some discussion of how developing innovative capacity can serve to make some healthcare services more accessible.
