CS-Link: Major Upgrade Installed May 1

CS-Link™ underwent a significant upgrade on Tuesday, May 1.

There were major changes made concerning the implementation of ambulatory referrals. These included:

  • Newly enhanced outpatient referral orders with a robust provider finder
  • Enhanced tracking of the status of an outpatient referral and authorization
  • Improved workflow in CS-Link for ordering clinic administered medications and obtaining prior authorization at the same time
  • Integration of the referral record and prior authorization into outpatient procedure orders (including office-based procedures)

You can review the changes in a complete video course.

Other optimizations included:

  • Outpatient Morphine Equivalent Daily Dosing (MEDD) report
  • New MRI with Anesthesia Ordering Workflows
  • Physician Learning Home Dashboard updates
  • Transition of outpatient Procedure Center orders from paper to CS-Link
  • PCU and Cardiac Monitor ordering updates

You can learn about all of these upgrades by looking on Service Now.
