Abstract

Previous epidemiological researches have studied HFMD transmission pattern, but the study on the patients mobility pattern while seeking treatment is absent. In this paper, we present a statistical analysis of the spatialtemporal pattern of the Beijing HFMD patients mobility based on a complete works dataset containing over 40,000 cases in 2010. The main findings are as follows: (1) the patents incline to take their sick children to hospitals on weekdays, especially on Monday; (2) the patients living far from city center are more likely to get to hospitals in the afternoon, while the patients in the downtown in the morning; (3) patients (or their parents) either select the nearby hospitals, or the Class-A hospitals in the downtown. Furthermore, we employ a gravity model to describe the spatial mobility pattern of patients. The experiment results show a good fit.
