A new process, starting now, to access your Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) and other portal applications is now in place. You can simply go to:

You must then log-in to VDI with your UH username and password. Or you can click on the button and link below.

Through VDI You may access Email, remote into your work desktop, and utilize Cerner applications to complete many Cerner workflows from within this new entrance.  Once logged into VDI, you will find the Cerner link in the desktop folder called, “Shortcuts Repository.” Within that folder there is another folder labeled, “Samaritan,” and there you will find a link to the Cerner External storefront.  You can access VDI through a web browser or you may download the free VMWare Horizon client.

Cerner applications can be accessed by clicking the Cerner button below. Log-in with your Samaritan network credentials first and after you click on Cerner application you will be prompted for your Cerner credentials. You will need a product called Citrix Reciever to interact with these applications, if you have been using the old Samaritan portal you likely have this already. Citrix Receiver is a free application available from Citrix for Windows/Mac/IOS/Android.
