At UC Davis Health, we understand the need to work from wherever you are. When you're traveling or working from home please follow these tips to stay secure, connected and productive.
If you have a UC Davis Health laptop, it's already secured and ready for remote work using AnyConnect VPN.
The need for UC Davis Health issued computers is being evaluated by leadership. We have very limited access to additional computers. More inventory has been ordered but global supply chains are stretched due to the COVID-19 impact on China. Requests for laptops will be prioritized to support critical patient care and revenue cycle operations.
Here are your options:
Option 1: Access your most commonly used applications on the web:
Option 2: If you need full access to the UC Davis Health network, file shares/mapped drives and a broader set of specialized applications, use AnyConnect VPN. This is the most complex setup but provides the broadest access.
Webex is a simple, all-in-one solution that lets you meet across desktops, mobile devices, and conference rooms. Webex is free to UC Davis Health faculty, staff and students, and the UC Davis Health Webex instance is approved for use with restricted data.
We've put together a webpage of Webex Resources to help you have a Webex meeting that is (almost) as good as being there. We recommend using a headset (like the one that came with your mobile phone) when using Webex.
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video.
