CS-Link Tip: Up to Date

Lisa Masson, MD, associate medical director of Ambulatory Information Systems, reminds us that if physicians have a need to consult Up to Date to answer a clinical question, they can access this resource from within CS-Link™ by navigating to Web Activities on the Main Tool Bar.

Access Up to Date in two quick steps:

  • Click Web Activities on the Main Tool Bar.
  • In the Web Activities dropdown, click Up to Date.

When the physician finishes with Up to Date, they can easily return to CS-Link by clicking the Close button in the Up to Date window.

To view screen shots of this tip, please click this CS-Link Central link, scroll down to the bottom of the page under Tip of the Week, and click on the tip titled "Up to Date" for July 19.

It should be noted that several other resources can be accessed through the Web Activities drop down, including the OR Schedule, Antibiotic Susceptibility and Cost form, and the BiliTool to calculate the risk of a term infant developing hyperbilirubinemia.
