CS-Link Tip: Web/VS Direct Access Discontinued

Effective Sept. 8, the only way to access Web/VS is through CS-Link™. The Web/VS system architecture is more than 20 years old and cannot be sustained indefinitely.

Thanks to your feedback over the past few weeks, key areas of concern have been identified regarding the transition and are addressed in a "crosswalk" document. This document lists where certain Web/VS functions can be found in CS-Link, such as creation of a patient list, office printing and more.

The team at Enterprise Information Services is available to arrange one-on-one or small-group sessions to review these changes or help improve your efficiency with common tasks within CS-Link.

To arrange a training session, please contact Shaun Miller, MD, at 310-423-8759 or shaun.miller@cshs.org.
