I am trying to add a mobile registration as a supplemental resource when a queue length exceeds a certain value, and then have that resource "on" for the next hour, then turn "off".
Option 1) Use create token and a subflow (or a list??) to turn on the mobile resource and then turn it off eventually. This is my current solution but the problem is that my created token is linked to a patient and is destroyed when the patient leaves. A hack-y solution is just to keep tokens in the model for a large amount of time, but I would rather know how to do it properly. My current solution does not turn the resource on/off - it just sends the tokens to the mobile registration station logical flow.
Option 2) Find a way to turn resources on/off and pool the patients into one queue that has both the registrations desks and the mobile registration stations as available resources to acquire. This is actually my preferred solution since my current solution does not balance patients very intelligently between the registration desks and the mobile station.
PS. the logic can be found in the "Bloodwork and Specimen" patient flow
