Here is the project that I'm currently working on it and would be more than happy if I can get your opinion about it.
The project is about dispatching the EMS helicopters to the incident locations to transport the trauma patients to the hospital.
My goal is to develop a statistical model to decide whether an EMS helicopter or ground-based ambulance is the best option in terms of the survival odds of the patients.
Our data consists of patients transported to hospitals, the mean of transportation (HEMS or ambulance), demographics of the patient (age, gender, etc.), level of trauma, blood pressure, etc.
As such we've four categories of patients: 1. patients transported by helicopter and died, 2. transported by helicopter and survived, 3. transported by ambulance and died, and 4. transported by ambulance and survived.
My question is that what is the best statistical model for this case? Imagine that I want to decide to transport one specific patient by either HEMS or ambulance?
You're going to save lives!
