Bringing CS-Link to Your Private Office

Cedars-Sinai will be providing all physicians on the medical staff the option of using the CS-Link™ electronic medical record software in their private practices.

Click on the link below to download a PDF with more information and an application to participate. Several demonstrations are also planned where physicians can see what’s offered and ask questions.

Recently enacted federal regulations permit hospitals to subsidize the cost of installing electronic health record systems in the offices of private practitioners if certain conditions are met. As a result, Cedars-Sinai can offer CS-Link on a significantly discounted basis for use in medical staff physicians' private offices.

Demonstrations will be held:

  • Tuesday, May 31, 5-7 p.m., ECC-B
  • Tuesday, June 21, 5-7 p.m., CCR-B
  • Tuesday, June 28, 7-9 a.m., CCR-A
  • Tuesday, July 5, 5-7 p.m. CCR-B
  • Tuesday, July 12, 5-7 p.m., CCR-B
  • Tuesday, Aug. 2, 5-7 p.m., CCR-B
