Happy New Year to all.
There are only a couple of topics to cover today, so this is a shorter message than I have been sending recently.
As a reminder if you need help with Password resets or technical issues call the Service Desk at
A new feature was recently added to MEDITECH that allows us to much more easily taper medications.
If you would like to enter a tapering medication schedule in MEDITECH:
This will take you to the second medication (Edit or DCS) screen. You must scroll down to the Taper Schedule box at the bottom of the screen to enter your desired schedule.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 725-0265.
Until next week,
