MyApps helps physicians, staff work from any UPMC computer location
MyApps is a powerful tool that enables UPMC physicians and staff members to safely access their clinical and nonclinical applications from any health system computer.
“The real benefit of MyApps is that it enhances efficiency,” says Mark Hopkins, chief information officer, Academic and Community Hospitals, UPMC.
To use MyApps, physicians or staff click on the MyApps icon found on many computer desktops at UPMC or type http://myapps.upmc.edu in their Internet browser. Physicians and staff are then directed to type in their regular UPMC network usernames and passwords.
“At that point, you can access all of your assigned applications,” says Mr. Hopkins.
Applications organized by folders
The number of clinical and nonclinical applications in use at UPMC and within its areas of specialization has soared.
The UPMC Information Services Division (ISD) is creating a series of new folders within MyApps and Connect@UPMC to hold applications.
Applications such as Results Review (PowerChart) and positive patient identification (PPID) will be included within the eRecord folder, while a separate folder holds surgical scheduling and documentation (SurgiNet), Emergency Department triage and tracking (FirstNet), and other clinical applications.
The operations folder was created for applications such as My HUB, Atlas, and PeopleSoft.
For more information about MyApps, contact the UPMC ISD Help Desk at 412-647-HELP (4357).
