CS-Link Upgrade Set for June 7

CS-Link™ will be upgraded with new features and functionality on Saturday, June 7.

Following are some of the enhancements, although you will not see a significant amount of change in your day-to-day workflows or screens:

  • New Manage Orders section
  • Enhanced chart review search functions
  • Improved Care Everywhere functionality
  • Inpatient search feature
  • Enhanced AVS for patients
  • Personal Sticky Notes
  • Additional "Quick Actions" for InBasket
  • NoteWriter in sidebar
  • Enhanced diagnosis preference list
  • New Diagnosis Calculator

While the compliance date for the transition to ICD-10 has been delayed, system enhancements designed to assist physician documentation and diagnosis selection will be introduced during this upgrade.

To become familiar with all of the new features and functionality, you are strongly encouraged to view both the CS-Link upgrade and ICD-10 e-learning modules, which will be posted by May 26 at CS-Link Central. Related job aids also will be available.

No Creating or Editing SmartPhrases June 2-7

As part of the upgrade process, you will not be able to create new SmartPhrases or edit current SmartPhases from Monday, June 2, through Saturday, June 7. If you attempt to do so, you will get an error message. You will be able to use your current SmartPhrases during this period.

This upgrade will require a downtime. CS-Link users will need to log off of the system and follow downtime procedures on June 7 from 1 a.m. until about 5 a.m.
