We have at our disposal the emergency department’s data from the public hospitals of Balearic Islands thanks to an agreement with the ’Conselleria de Salut’ and ’Universitat de les Illes Balears’. Our work is divided in two different parts. The first part consists of an analysis of the patterns found in the arrival and disclosure times of patients attending the emergency departments. Special emphasis is given to the different periodicities and trends found using a Fourier analysis. In the second part, we use well-known statistical tools in order to perform predictions about the number of arrivals at specific days and times.
