First Published 6/29/2022

July 10, 2022 will bring changes to the UTMB EMR system.  Start learning today about the changes especially with scheduling.  “Book It” is an entirely new way to schedule appointments within the Epic system.  Go to the Epic Upgrade website to learn more about Book It and review all system enhancements by application and/or user role.

The Epic EMR will be unavailable Sunday, July 10 from 10:00a-12:00p to perform the software upgrade. During the upgrade timeframe, clicking on the UTMB EMR icon will take the user to a READ ONLY version of Epic.  All users should follow established downtime procedures for their area.

Beginning Thursday afternoon on July 7, some functions performed in Epic on-a-daily basis will not be available. Once the system upgrade is complete, these features will be accessible.

Functions unavailable include:

  • Changes to Dashboards
  • Creation of new workqueues and report filters (impacts Charge Router Reconciliation Report).  Workqueues with saved filters using existing rules continue to work.
  • Creation of personal Smart Phrases, Smart Forms; macros and personalization of the Ophthalmology exam form

Access to non-UTMB email accounts to be blocked beginning July 6, 2022
First Published 6/29/2022

To ensure data security and the integrity of our information resources, UTMB will begin to block direct access to non-UTMB email services (i.e. personal mail accounts hosted with services such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo!) from UTMB-owned or managed devices, and from UTMB’s protected networks. 

External mail services have the potential to circumvent/bypass existing UTMB security controls, filters and other measures in place to protect university data, infrastructure and users’ UTMB mail accounts from malicious programs and other threats.     

Orchestrated by the Office of Information Security, the new restrictions will 1) block web access to non-UTMB email services for any device on a protected UTMB network (access will still be allowed on “UTMB-guest wireless”), and 2) prevent the adding of these email services to Exchange/Outlook profiles on UTMB-managed devices.

These new restrictions will not block access to these services from a personal device (such as a mobile phone or personal laptop) accessing the Internet via non-UTMB networks (or the UTMB-guest wireless network). They will not block sending/receiving emails to or from these services.

We understand that this necessary change may present an inconvenience, and thank you in advance for helping us protect our people and resources from ever-more-challenging and numerous threats.    

These controls will be effective beginning July 6, 2022.

Mechanomedicine of Aging Symposium 7-1-2022 @ 1pm-5:10pm
First Published 6/30/2022
With the increase in lifespan from better medical treatments, there is great interest in
mitigating the quality‐of‐life compromises that come with aging. Much evidence indicates that exercise
inhibits many aging processes and does so through mechanical reversal of senescence at a cellular level.
We will explore some of the molecular mechanisms whereby exercise and other mechanical effects can
inhibit or reverse the senescence process.
We want to stimulate interactions at UTMB on the studies of aging with particular emphasis on
the molecular mechanisms that can mitigate aging through exercise or other mechanical activities.
Complex metabolic and signaling pathways are altered with cell senescence and the increase in the
percentage of senescent cells with age underlies many aging abnormalities. These include diabetes,
arthritis, susceptibility to infection, cardiovascular and other disorders.https://utmb.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=696f568f-7ec5-4577-8882-aec200fb7ddc
