MGH Help Desk streamlines ticket process
The Help Desk line (617-726-5085), will no longer prompt MGHers to make selections. Instead, staff will be connected directly to a Partners Help Desk analyst who will create a service ticket and assign it to the appropriate Telecom work group for telephone issues or the IS group for computer issues. This new process will improve Telecom ticket documentation, tracking and prioritization. For more information, contact Ed Logan at 617-724-6901 or
