CS-Link Tip: A Helpful Shortcut

Consider this helpful shortcut when using CS-Link™. Suppose you are making a decision about treatment for a patient when you want to calculate their 10-year Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) risk.

One way to find out would be to use your smartphone to access the ASCVD risk calculator. Or you may know the link is listed under WebActivites, then click calculators, and finally get to the website while working in CS-Link™.

A more efficient approach would be to just type ".ascvd." As long as all components are present (blood pressure, a lipid panel are on file), the answer will appear. The system looks back two years for pertinent information.

Also, HealthStream offers physician efficiency training modules for continuing medical education credit. There are 22 modules that last 15 minutes each. They include topics such as "In Basket Quick Actions," "Smart Blocks in Progress Notes" and "SmartList Editor."

To take advantage, log into HealthStream and search the catalog using keywords: PET CME. Select the module you want to view, then click "Enroll."
