51 Florida hospitals form COVID-19 data exchange: 4 things to know 

Tampa General Hospital and AdventHealth are among a group of 51 Florida hospitals that have developed a joint interactive dashboard to share COVID-19 clinical data. 

Four things to know: 

1. The COVID-19 Florida West Coast Regional Data Exchange shows real-time data from 51 hospitals, such as how many patients are being treated for COVID-19, and resources available at each hospital including the number of available negative-pressure rooms, intensive care unit rooms and ventilator counts. 

2. Tampa General Hospital and Altamonte Springs-based AdventHealth also partnered with Clearwater-based BayCare Health System; Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare; Lakeland Regional Health; Fort Myers-based Lee Health; and Bradenton-based Manatee Memorial Hospital for the project. 

3. The data exchange also tracks the number of patients who may have COVID-19 but are awaiting test results. 

4. The hospitals tapped data consulting group SME Solutions Group to help create the data exchange.
