The Web/VS Tip of the Week

Subscribe/Unsubscribe to Patients

Web/VS's "Subscribe/Unsubscribe" feature allows you to receive immediate e-mail notifications for your patient's lab results, reports and changes in inpatient status such as admissions, discharges and transfers from one unit to or another.

The Subscribe/Unsubscribe feature is only available for users with the M.D., R.N., Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant or Clinical Lab Staff roles. If your e-mail address is not in the,, or domains, the ZIX Secure E-mail server is used for delivery to protect the confidentiality of patient information.

The "Subscribe" button for a particular patient is available at the lower end of the left-hand blue navigation area after the patient has been selected in Web/VS.

When the "Subscribe" button is clicked, a confirmatory message will be displayed in a pop-up window and the legend on the button will change to "Unsubscribe."

The "Subscribe" button will not appear if you do not have a valid e-mail address configured in your Web/VS User Profile.

To stop receiving the e-mail notification on a specific patient, simply select the patient in Web/VS and click on the "Unsubscribe" button.

Note: the "Advanced Subscribe" capability allows you to subscribe to specific types of reports and results rather than the "all or nothing" behavior of the "Easy Subscribe." You can switch to "Advanced Subscribe" in your Web/VS User Profile.
