Tippies can be quickly adopted with immediate workflow benefits...
Some physicians have more than one role (e.g., sometimes working as a respirologist and sometimes as a critical care specialist), and therefore they may log on to the Connect Care clinical information system (CIS) to access different Epic modules for their different “jobs”. These users will then have available more than one “job” template in the CIS, and are given the ability to change both “job” and “context” when logging on to Connect Care.
Each "job" may provide access to more than one clinical context or "department"; selected as the next step in the logon sequence. In general, pick the most general virtual department available (e.g., zone general internal medicine):
So, what's the Tip? Happily, once job and context have been selected once, they default to the same value at the next logon and one can simply hit the Enter key twice. If one alternates between multiple jobs or contexts, the commonly selected ones are the ones defaulted to pick from.
And, once logged on, it is easy to change both job and context from the top right "Log Out" drop-down menu:
This Tip applies only to those physicians with multiple job options in Connect Care.
