Why do I need to install the Centricity Stub Program?
The Centricity PM software allows for plug-in to be added. When a plug-in is added, it is globally avaliable to all users. ScanSharp Plug-in For Centricity is designed as a plug-in and is avaliable to all users. As such, even if a user did not have the ScanSharp Plug-in for Centricity installed, the local Centricity workstation would still look for the plug-in. When it does not find the plug-in, it will simply warn of the user of such but will not affect the system.
The Centricity Stub Program does not require any license key. It is simply a mechanism from having the warning message NOT appear. The Centricity Stub Program is designed to mimick the existance of ScanSharp Plug-in For Centricity. This will hence cause the local Centricity workstation to recognize the existance of the Plug-in and not show the error message. As with the first case, this will not affect the system.
Only the workstations that require reviewing the Patient accounts requires the Centricity Stub Program to be installed.
