FYI: Quarterly Epic Upgrade July 16, 2020
Inpatient & Ambulatory: Less Cluttered Problem List [NEW LOOK – Effective 7/16/20]

Inpatient & Ambulatory: Turn off Duplicative Secure Chat Notifications [NEW FEATURE - Effective 7/16/20]
- Update Desktop Notification Settings by clicking on the settings icon in the Secure Chat Activity to eliminate duplicative Secure Chat Hyperspace notifications when using Haiku, Canto or Rover.

Inpatient & Ambulatory: Secure Chat – Opt-In Groups [NEW FEATURE – 7/16/20]
- Users can join an “opt-in” group if they currently do not have the ability to sign into a department or group (e.g. all ambulatory users) to communicate with others at your facility.
- Opt-in groups permit users to receive Connexall alarms and alerts via PC and mobile devices (Haiku/Canto/Rover).
- To create an opt-in group submit a Jira enhancement request to the Johns Hopkins Epic Team or contact your local Clinical Informatics representative.
