Abstract

The goal of this manuscript is to suggest the utilization of pre-existing population data to provide a functional tool for health systems and administrators to best estimate and plan resource utilization when building or refining a diabetic foot clinic. The system allows one to predict the number of expected risk-category specific visits from a local community in a given year. It is our hope that this system will aid health care providers in administrative planning and overhead. The calculator is hosted at http://www.diabeticcalculator.com as a free to use operation.
