Women’s Concierge

Starting June 1, a new phone service will make it a breeze for women to schedule appointments with physicians across Hopkins Medicine. With the Women’s Concierge Service, appointments in Gyn/Ob, heart and breast health, cosmetic surgery and other women’s specialties can be made through one access line. The concierge will coordinate appointments at the most convenient location and inform callers about related tests and educational opportunities. For direct access, dial 410-502-7465 or visit www.hopkinsmedicine.org/women.

Graphics Alert

It’s time to phase out those old Hopkins Medicine logos! Business cards, stationery, Web sites, marketing materials, etc., should bear officially sanctioned brandmarks when replaced. Offices and vendors are standing by to help with stationery needs. For details, downloadable graphics and more, go to the graphic standards handbook, www.hopkinsmedicine.org/graphicstandards.

Down and Dirty

JH HealthCare employees renovated a house in Glen Burnie on April 30 for Rebuilding Together—Anne Arundel County, a group that mobilizes volunteers to repair the homes of the county’s low-income elderly. The group paved a drive, reinforced a deck, caulked, cleaned, painted and tiled. Rebuilding Together is a national organization that serves hundreds of communities in the United States.

One Reporting System

Health System and University—for those who straddle both worlds, keeping track of it all requires reports that cover two different budgets and two sets of procedures. With the advent of HopkinsOne, “all will be able to compile reports from a common system, reducing the need for supplemental databases we call shadow systems,” says Kathy Brophy, performance reporting project manager. “Users will benefit from the system’s ability to extract, arrange, analyze and report on information. The software can create a detailed account of what’s been spent and what remains for a specific budget.” HopkinsOne staff recently demonstrated the system’s reporting capabilities for users.

Web for All

When members of JHU’s Web Accessibility Committee sampled the University’s Web pages, they found that 80 percent weren’t accessible to those with disabilities. Most pages can be made disability-friendly simply by offering text alternatives for visuals, says Peggy Hayeslip, associate director for Disability Services. The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action’s new accessibility Web site (http://webaccessibility.jhu.edu/) brings together resources on why and how to do this, including information on assistive technologies and how to evaluate sites for accessibility.
