Abstract: I will describe the recent work done in a team from Swedish academia together with people working with analysis and prediction in the health care system. The presentation will start with a general overview but then focus on analysis of the now famous and quite influential Imperial College model.

Joakim Jalden will also briefly describe recent efforts setting up a cooperation initiative between Region Stockholm and KTH.
