New Phones and Computers

Upgrades and new service in the HOA's Lounge.

Members will no longer be required to dial the Hospital Operator for an outside line.  An outside line will automiatically connect by dialing 97 + 1 and the number you're calling.  This upgraded access will be monitored for abuse.

The 12 work stations have been upgraded with larger 24 inch monitors and imaged for the same Kiosk system that you use on the floors.  Additionally, all have a Window's 10 Operating System.  The adjustable arms will be removed in the next few days.  Please let Robin or Christina know if something isn't working properly.

Call room computers are not part of the planned upgrade at this time, but it has been discussed and it is something the HOA plans to press for during the next round of negotiations.  

The Administrative Liaison to the HOA is Hilary King and she's very responsive to the needs of House Officers and is largely responsible for working with us to see that these improvements were implemented by the HITS team.
