I'm back! Hi Margaret - would you be willing to chat with Donnie Clark at Nationwide Children's about how they did that? There are some other ways using an ODBC to Cache on Shadow, but Census is a pretty reliable API. @dclark0699
Nemours Childrens has built a real time ED census mobile app. We use our HL7 interface engine(ensemble) to create a repository of registrations/rooms/discharges and so on in real time, and refresh our app from the repository(15 second refresh). This also allows us to gather all our locations data from a single source.
