Two informational forums are scheduled to discuss the UNM Health Sciences Center email system transition next spring from GroupWise to HSCLink.  The first forum will be held Dec. 17, 11 a.m. to noon in Domenici Center Northeast, room 2410. A second forum is scheduled for Jan. 10, 11 a.m. - noon in the same location.

The Information Technology staff at the Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center and UNM Hospitals are completing the design of the new Microsoft Exchange with Outlook 2013 desktop email client, which has been named “HSCLink.” HSCLink will be the official Health Sciences Center communication service for all HSC business once it is launched in the spring. At that time, the HSC, UNMH, the UNM Medical Group and the Sandoval Regional Medical Center will begin using Outlook instead of GroupWise, the HSC's current email and calendar program.

HSCLink offers many advantages over GroupWise: It is reliable and secure; it offers easy mobile connectivity and full mobile synchronization; it can be used with iOS, Android and Windows Mobile devices; it has proxy capabilities; it features full support of distribution lists; and it supports both PCs and Macs.  For more information, visit the HSC Email Project website at http://hsc.unm.edu/email.
