Windows 10 Upgrade - Clinical Workstations


Clinical workstations are devices that are used for patient care and are typically shared. As part of the transition to Windows 10, most clinical workstations will be replaced with new hardware. IT teams will work directly with designated "site leaders" in areas across VUMC to ensure a smooth replacement of hardware and transitioning users to become familiar with using Windows 10. 

What will my Windows 10 experience be?

CWS Before          CWS After

You don't need to touch your machine. VUMC IT/NTT support will be onsite the day of your upgrade to assist. A designated site leader in your area will communicate with you about what to expect before, during and after the transition. 

To best prepare for your new Windows 10 experience, please review the Quick Start Guide and engage in the short eLearning below.

Information Session

All site leaders should attend an information session hosted by the Windows 10 team. Information sessions will provide more detail on responsibilities as a site leader:

  • Communicating expectations with team members
  • Tracking colleague education
  • Arranging optimal time of day/evening/night for deployment
  • Designating staff representative(s) to oversee exchange of equipment
  • Elevating issues related to installation of new equipment and/or Windows 10

Each information session will be 60 minutes and will allow ample time for questions. Sessions will be held in various locations around VUMC, aligning geographically with the Windows 10 rollout schedule below.

Register for an information session: log into the Learning Exchange and search for course "Site Leader Windows 10 CWS Rollout Info Sessions".
