Last month we highlighted information about a "Lunch and Learn" at MHRI's University Town Center (UTC) offices on advanced uses of excel. Well, last week we welcomed Donna Reeder from MedStar Health Information Services to learn more about SharePoint and how associates can use it to innovate their day-to-day tasks. They also heard about a few ways to make using SharePoint easier through simple tips.This is handy tool available to all MedStar associates and a great way to collaborate.
Donna reviewed how to use this and the other collaboration sites. It was exciting to hear of the innovations that are in use across the system, from call centers to shared calendars. There are almost 3,000 collaboration sites within the MedStar Health SharePoint network! Several recommendations were suggested for ways in which MHRI can make use of these features.
Since MHRI associates are spread out across the health system and embedded within different facilities, this program helps to link departments and people together in ways that will allow for more efficient coordination and support.
What ways can your department use SharePoint and think outside the box to make you more successful at MHRI?
