RWJBarnabas Health’s Epic Playground (PLY) is a dedicated training environment for you to practice what you learned in training and become proficient with Epic workflows.
After you have completed your first Instructor Lead Training (VILT), you will receive access to the Epic Playground (PLY).
This guide will help you to access the Epic Playground (PLY) for practicing your Epic workflows.
There are two different ways to access Epic Playground (PLY):
Log in to your Citrix as you normally would (through an icon on your desktop or the web).
Use your internet browser to go to https://remote.rwjbh.org.
Use your internet browser to go to https://xi.rwjbh.org/Citrix/RWJBHWeb/.
You will now have access to the Citrix desktop. This displays the applications assigned to you. It may look similar to this.
The desktop has a search box in the upper right-hand corner under your name. Type in the term “PLY” into the search box. After typing PLY, the red Epic PLY Hyperspace icon will appear. This is the correct icon for the Playground.
If you are missing the Playground icon, please contact the Enterprise Service Desk at 855-453-1950 so that it can be added to Citrix. Let them know that you are an Epic user attempting to access Playground via Citrix and indicate whether you are using offsite or onsite access.
You are almost there!
You can also just click around and get used to the screens. The Epic Playground will refresh every night so you can go back in as often as you would like.
Once you are logged into the Epic Playground you can access the LHD from any screen within Epic by pressing the F1 key on your keyboard (this also applies to the live Epic environment).
A separate window will appear with the LHD, which is an educational tool containing tip sheets and quick start guides to help you navigate through Hyperspace.
