New this quarter
We added a new component to facilitate the interaction with VistA Experts, it is called VistA Questions. This new functionality will allow the user to post questions, answer questions, vote for the best question and answer, etc. In addition to that, VistA Questions will organize entries by topic to facilitate the search of information, and it will provide the identification of experts for each topic. Users will be able to watch specific topics by "watching" the topic. We are also connecting the Extensions and Webinars section to VistA Questions so you can see from each page related questions. This comprehensive concatenation of content will enhance the user's navigation experience.
To nurture collaboration and the next generation of VistA Experts we partnered with EduBrite Systems, Inc. and VISTA Expertise Network to provide a new educational environment. We added a new Learning Management System seamlessly integrated with The VistA Extensions Hub.
We provided two training webinars for Instructors and Learners and we organized current recorded material as Programs. We launched the first two programs HIS Path and Mumps Training and we have a group of community professionals and experts preparing the next wave of VistA Related Training.
We launched the VistA Clinical Application Coordinator | Health Informtics Specialist User Group with a successful meeting on June 24th. We had good presentations and community participation. Please check our meeting notes and register for the next one in September 30th, 2014 at 2 PM EST
We are supporting Renewal Coalition, Honor Flight and Wounded Warrior of South Florida as well as Wounded Warrior and Honor Flight national programs. Check the calendar for upcoming events. Support our Veterans!
