Time Zone Considerations

Different Time Zones and Mobile Devices

Figure 1. Time Zone Message

Upon log in with a mobile device, Centricity Perinatal Web will check the time zone on the server and compare it to the time on your mobile device. If your operating system shows that you are in a different time zone than the server, the time displayed on the patient grid will be accurate for your local time zone rather than the patient’s. A persistent message will be displayed on the Patient Details View to remind you that the times do not match. If you cross into the patient’s time zone while logged in to Centricity Perinatal Web, the message will display until you have logged out and log back in.

Note: If you are on a smaller device and viewing in landscape orientation, the message will not be displayed but the icon will be present.

Tapping the icon will display the message. Tap anywhere in the screen or rotate to the portrait orientation to clear the message.

Tip: When you are traveling, if you are checking patients at the same time and would like to display time labels in the patient’s time zone, turn off your device’s option to auto-update the device’s time.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) and Time Zones

When you are one time zone east of the site’s server and viewing a patient within the hour when daylight savings changes in the fall, you could appear to be at the same hour as the site.
