    Getting Started in VISTA is the must-have introductory manual you need to get you up and running quickly and easily. In clear, jargon-free language, this friendly guide will walk you through signon, navigation, and basic operation of the VISTA medical software.

    Getting Started in VISTA is intended for new end users of VISTA. It provides a basic introduction to VISTA's standard (non-Windows) user interface, and covers such topics as signing on, navigation, getting help, and using the native text editors. It provides a brief introduction to Mailman, but does not introduce any other specific VISTA package or application.

  • Wire-bound, soft cover, 117 pages
  • $20 (plus shipping and handling)
  • (Need several copies for your facility? Contact us about a site license!)

    VISTA Expertise Network intends to sell Getting Started in VISTA until we earn back our initial investment in editing and illustrating this new edition. At that time, we intend to make the book freely available to the VISTA community as a PDF download.




    Also available is the new and updated printing of the 1995 Standard MUMPS Pocket Guide, fifth edition, by Frederick D. S. Marshall. This represents the first release by MUMPS Books. It is available from us in hardcopy for $6 (plus shipping and handling), or for free as a PDF download (in the upper-right corner of this page).
