Training the CS-Link trainers to help others with new improvements

Chief CS-Link™ Super-user Shaun Miller, MD, is bringing all of his physician super-users up to speed on some new improvements so that they can provide the necessary training to others.

"We have created new training aids that give physicians updated guidance on two important areas: the optimized dictation/transcription/edit/sign workflow and best practices for the use of nursing communication orders," said Miller, pictured at right.

These training updates can be found at www.cslinkcentral.org/index.php/how-to/training-updates/.

Miller encourages medical staff who would like personalized training to visit the Physician Resource Center in Room 2806 on the Plaza Level of the South Tower.

"When physicians understand the dictation/transcription workflow, it will make them much more efficient," Miller said.

Regarding nurse communication orders, Miller said, "physicians need to use these appropriately. Orders for medications cannot be placed there because pharmacy will not see them." He added that proper use of the CS-Link tools will enhance patient safety.
