Web/VS Viewing Preferences - User Profile

The User Profile form allows you to customize many Web/VS features and defaults for your work environment and preferred working style. The User Profile form also allows you to update your contact information such as your phone, fax number, pager and e-mail address. This contact information is automatically transmitted to the Medical Staff Office so that they can update their credentialing database and the physician directory as well.

To change your user preferences and customize your user profile, click the User Profile button in the lower left end of the Web/VS blue navigation area. The current values for all of your contact information and user preferences are displayed. You can then edit values or pick from drop-down menus to change your preferences.

For example, if you were working with the CICU team for a teaching rotation, you could configure Web/VS to immediately show you the CICU team list after you log in by following these steps:

  1. Log into Web/VS in the usual way;
  2. Click the "User Profile" button in the lower left end of the blue navigation area;
  3. Scroll down to "Display after Login" and change the drop-down menu selection to "Housestaff Team Patient List";
  4. Scroll down further to "Housestaff Team" and change the drop-down menu selection to "CICU Team";
  5. Scroll all the way to the bottom and click the "Update My Profile" button.

For questions, comments or suggestions, please contact the Web/VS Support Team at (310) 423-2828 or via e-mail at groupcdrsupport@cshs.org. You can also click on the "Contact Us" button in Web/VS (located in the blue shaded area on the bottom left side of the screen).
