Limitations on Use

Unfortunately, some users have been using automated, scripted and other techniques to acquire data for large numbers of hospitals. This violates our terms of use and has made it necessary to install safeguards.

Most people will not be affected by these changes but high volume users will need to periodically enter verification codes to continue a session. (The codes are displayed as a graphic and must then be keyed in for the user to continue.)

We will also enforce a policy of restricting or terminating access for users who abuse the free service.

Subscription services are not affected by the change and custom data services remain available.
