SECURE HEALTH MESSAGING
Secure Health Messaging (SHM) is now available. It is a method of electronic communication between providers who have CRIS accounts and SHM privileges. Messages can be composed, replied to, and forwarded. Electronic messages managed through SHM can be attached to patients' electronic medical records and viewed within CRIS. When attached to a patient record, these messages become a permanent part of the medical record (CRIS). SHM can be accessed from within CRIS and also from any web browser (https://shm.cc.nih.gov). Resources are available below.
Questions may be directed to the Health Information Management Department's support team: 1-855-644-6445.

DEPLOYMENT OF STANDARD CLINICAL DESKTOPS (SCDS)
The SCDs which are workstations in Inpatient and Outpatient areas use for CRIS has been upgraded to Win 7 w/ 64 bit. It may be necessary to change the resolution of the screen. Refer to the following instructions(113 KB).

There are two things that we would like to make you aware of that may need your attention:
For those that have mail personal store (PST) folders in Microsoft (MS) Outlook, you will need to add them back the first time you launch the updated Clinical Center Desktop. This is because personal folders are not part of your MS Outlook mailbox. See attached document for steps on how to add PST folders to you MS Outlook.
For those that use email auto signature in Citrix Outlook, you will need to recreate your signatures for messages. Select Options >> Mail >> Signatures and complete the necessary information.

BTRIS provides clinical investigators with access to identifiable data for subjects on their own active protocols, while providing all NIH investigators with access to de-identified data across all protocols. For additional information on BTRIS go to http://btris.nih.gov
