Understanding a Vocera Hill-Rom Staff Assignment Adapter Configuration

A Hill-Rom clinical staff API publishes assignment data which is used by Vocera Platform to manage staff duty assignments.

Adapters send information to and receive information from Vocera Platform, as well as monitor and collect data. Each adapter is configured to allow Vocera Platform to communicate with a specific type of resource and any devices that resource may control.

The Vocera Hill-Rom Staff Assignment Adapter consumes the clinical staff assignment data published by the Hill-Rom Clinical Staff API to leverage a single point of administration for staff duty assignments in a clinical environment. The participating web services are designed with REST, and the Hill-Rom integration can be configured to use plain text communication for sending or receiving.
