CST is coming… Are you ready?

CST (Clinical Systems & Transformation) is coming to VCH-Vancouver in mid-2020. VPSA wants to help its members prepare. We have formed a committee to provide VCH with input to ensure the system works well for physicians. VCH-Vancouver is also providing us with useful information. Our goal is to assist our members in making the transition to CST as seamless as possible. Please use the resources available here to assist in this process.
