CS-Link Tip: Rearranging the Tool Bar

OpTime is live. That means that CS-Link™ is now the record in the operating room.

Some physicians may have been happy to find the tab Surgeon OR Reports in the middle of the tool bar. Some may prefer to move this tab over to the right. Remember that you can move items on the tool bar by using the wrench. Click the link below if you need help.

For super users, Ed Phillips, MD, points out a great time saver — bookmarks. You never have to type the same thing twice. If you want your plan to be in a patient's after-visit summary, you can put that documentation between bookmarks and have it imported into the summary.

To support the transition to OpTime and Anesthesia, another new addition to CS-Link, an OpTime/Anesthesia Resource Center is available now through Dec. 6. The resource center is in room 2806, on the South Tower Plaza Level. Hours are 7 a.m.-5 p.m. The center will be closed Thursday, Nov. 28.
