School of Health and Human Services, Member of VIP Health Connect San Diego

The School of Health and Human Services Becomes a Member of VIP Health Connect of San Diego

SHHS is now a member of VIP Health Connect of San Diego. VIP Health Connect is a resource center primarily serving the Scripps Mercy Physician Partners Medical Group (SMPPMG) of San Diego. As a member, we will have opportunties to connect with the nearly 800 member physicians and other service provider members. Specific opportunities will become available for student internships, capstone research projects, student learning experiences, faculty research and demonstration projects, and other activities that will be emerge over the coming months.

Below is a link to VIP Health Connect and you are encouraged to view the web site. National University is listed in the Physician Resource Center. You will also notice that a "Learning Center" is included and we hope to provide resources in this section that will serve both physicians and their staff. We are currently in the process of starting several projects with other service providers and physicians in the group.

The web page you see in this link appears as the home page of the EHR system used by most of the physicians in SMPPMG, so the information contained will be viewed daily and frequently.

More information will be provided in the coming months as projects are implemented.
