New Remote Access for Physicians – Enroll Today!
Medical City Healthcare has launched a faster, more secure Citrix (VDI) portal for physician remote access. The current system will be shut down in February.
In order to maintain access, we are asking every physician who uses VDI to sign up and begin using the new system by February 13. This change will also apply to physician office staff.
Signing up is an easy three-step process:
- While connected to the HCA network, visit the enrollment page
- Follow the enrollment instructions on the screen.
- Physician Owned Computers
- Visit the new virtual Desktop at https://northtexas.vdi.medcity.net
- Manually create a bookmark or desktop shortcut to the new website
- Delete any bookmarks or desktop shortcuts to the previous VDI site
- Note: The new VDI System requires Citrix Receiver version 4.6 or higher (windows)/ 12.4 or higher(Mac). Contact Physician support at (877) 422-2060 to ensure you have the right version of Citrix.
