JOB POSTINGS: WIC BREASTFEEDING COORDINATOR/NUTRITIONIST - ST. LOUIS COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH


SUBJECT 1: Changes to Formulas in MOWINS - Effective February 1, 2016 (Monday). Please see the attached list of changes to formulas in MOWINS - Effective February 1, 2016. It is important to follow the new guidance about the reset/update process. Before doing the reset/update, close the clinic application window, but make sure that the “W” icon is still open in the lower taskbar tray. When the clinic application window is open, it locks the data files on the workstation, which doesn’t always allow the necessary updates to occur. If you need assistance on the instructions, please contact MOWINS Help Desk at 1-800-554-2544.

Please share the attachment with all your staff. (ONE ATTACHMENT)
