Note: This webinar is by invitation only to Super User Hospitals
Oct. 15, 2018
Noon-1 p.m. Central
The Texas Department of State Health Services will switch to a new vital registrar software on January 1, 2019. This is the system that registers all births and deaths in the state and is highly utilized by our hospitals. In collaboration with DSHS, we will identify and train “super users” within our hospitals that have the most births and deaths in the state. These super users will be trained now to effectively navigate the new system when it goes live and then support our facilities in troubleshooting the new system.
