USING CST CERNER FOR TELEHEALTH/VIRTUAL VISITS
CST Cerner remains the electronic health record for documentation of telehealth and virtual patient visits for CST Cerner live sites. If your clinic/clinical area normally registered and scheduled patients for ambulatory visits and documentation in CST Cerner, these functions extend to virtual encounters regardless of what telehealth/virtual platform you use. The patient encounter should be scheduled in CST Cerner in order to document it into the electronic chart and to capture it for hospital reporting, charging, and statistical tracking.
For instructions on How to Use CST Cerner for Telehealth Visits see this page on the COVID-19 website.
Reminder: Physicians can request a licensed version of Zoom (the free version is not approved by Providence) for virtual health visits. All requests for Zoom licenses are being provisioned daily, with almost 350 licenses provided since last Wednesday. To request yours complete this form https://surveys.divisionsbc.ca/ZoomAccount.survey then look for an email from Zoom, sent on our behalf, with the subject line: ‘Zoom account invitation.’ Please click the activation link only once.
