RRMC

Part 1: Amalga for Physicians

Getting Started

Using Amalga and NetAccess with UAS Single Sign-On


Amalga and netaccess

Electronic Health Record Systems that provide patient information such as lab results, nursing documentation, transcription reports, radiology, orders, etc.

Differences between the two systems:

Amalga

Prints the selected progress notes pre-populated with last labs since midnight, date/time, and patient information to support patient safety and save time

Provides historical patient data from RRMC Star (Allergies, Radiology, etc.)

Provides a view of patient information across Novant Facilities

Can be used to view results during NetAccess downtime

NetAccess

Provides a view of Nursing Progress Notes

The system in which care provider relationships are established (Attending MD, Consulting MD, etc)

Can be used to view results during Amalga downtime

Amalga and NetAccess


Uas single sign on

Provides the ability to log onto multiple applications (such as Amalga and NetAccess) with one entry of your User ID and Password

Provides an easy one-click exit out of multiple applications

Provides a bridge between Amalga and NetAccess. The bridge communicates the selected patient between the systems so that when a patient is selected in one system, the patient is automatically selected in the other system. This allows for quick switching between systems

Will hold your last spot at the point of exit for 15 min and is not device specific. (Example: If you are viewing a patients lab results and exit out of UAS in a hurry. Then log into a different device within 15 min, UAS will take you back to your patients lab results)

Will automatically lock your session after 5 minutes of inactivity to protect your sign on from being used by another person. This lock does not prevent others from signing in to the device using their own User ID and password

UAS Single Sign On

Employee Services

Click Tools and Services

In order to log into and use the UAS Single Sign On bridge, it is extremely important to use Password Management before your first log in and each time you change your password. This will keep your passwords synchronized between applications

Password Management can be accessed via the Intranet
