Using CMBHS On-Line Help

The CMBHS Online Help is designed to assist users in successfully using the CMBHS program. It provides quick answers to questions the user may encounter during everyday and more in depth information for users who encounter problems.

Training is important to ensure that staffs that have never used an EHR can learn CMBHS quickly and that those familiar with other EHR programs, can transition to CMBHS as easily as possible.

Using the CMBHS Online Help will facilitate a positive CMBHS experience; but it is designed to supplement training – not as a substitute for training. Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) provides training opportunities to staff who will be users of CMBHS.

DSHS provides training opportunities for current and future users of CMBHS. Upcoming training is posted at the top of the CMBHS Login page or you can call the DSHS CMBHS Help Desk at 1-866-806-7806.
