To access the VA Remote system on MUSC clinical workstations (Lynx systems) you will need to have the VA Remote icon added to your desktop if you do not already have it. To do so please call 843-792-9700 and request that the VA Remote icon be added to your profile or the group of computers you use if you do not log in to those computers.
You will also need a VA PIV Card reader on your computer. If the location you intend to use this at does not have one please let 843-792-9700 know that you’d like to request a VA PIV Card reader be placed and they can find the appropriate person to place it there for you.
Once you have the icon and the reader you will simply double click the desktop icon to launch the program then do the following:
Insert your badge/PIV Card in the reader.
Click Switch User
Choose the Smart Card option which should include some information about you read from the card
Login with your VA username and password when prompted
