    New SCM PCP Clinical Summary Screen

    In response to suggestions to consolidate pertinent patient information in Sunrise Clinical Manager (SCM), we have created a new PCP Clinical Summary screen. This clinical summary, based on recommendations from our physicians, is designed to alleviate the need to search through multiple screens to find documentation regarding your patients' hospitalizations.

    We hope you'll find this a more efficient way to locate patient information and we look to you for additional suggestions and feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to any of the following individuals:

  • CME Desktop Live View is Now Active!

    Any clinician or physician who requires CMEs to maintain their license to practice can now view grand rounds, tumor boards and other conferences LIVE from a hospital-connected computer. Gilman Auditorium, Bliss 303 and JB-118 have been outfitted with the technology that will provide you live viewing of these presentations. Look for the new "CME Live View" icon on your desktop or find a link on the Medical Education Intranet page. Click here for more info.
