Medical Staff have many ways to contribute

Cedars-Sinai physicians have numerous opportunities to shape the design and implementation of the hospital's new integrated information system.

The clinical side of the electronic system dubbed CS-Link is set to launch in late 2009 and there are still many ways physicians are involved in the program's development.

The hospital saw more than 70 "patients" as part of the four-hour simulation, which involved every department at the medical center.
