Viewing OR Schedule by Procedure

Web/VS Tip of the Week

The capability to view procedures in the order in which they have been entered in SIS (the order in which they will be performed) is available in Web/VS. The "OR Schedule" function in Web/VS provides information about past and future surgeries and procedures in both inpatient and outpatient areas. Data is available from approximately Sept. 1, 2001, until several months into the future.

Viewing "OR Schedules"

On the Easy Search screen in the blue navigation area under the "OR Schedules" section, click on the "Go" button. If you wish to view surgeries and procedures for a different date, first select the desired month, day and year from the pick lists, then click the "Go" button.

To shorten the listing, change the pick list from "All Rooms" to the area of interest and then click the "Go" button. If you are a physician, an extra option labeled "My Cases" is available on the rooms menu and allows you to limit the displayed schedule to cases for which you are the primary surgeon, secondary surgeon or anesthesiologist.

Once you click "Go," the OR Schedule listing will display. By default, the OR Schedule listing will sort by room, by time within each room, and by procedure order. You can also sort the listing on any column by clicking the hot linked column heading. Click the same column heading again to reverse the sort.

For questions, comments or suggestions, please contact the Web/VS Support Team at (310) 423-2828 or via e-mail at mdsupport@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).
