On September 11, Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) upgraded to ServiceNow, a move designed to simplify and improve the way requests for IT-related help and services are handled. In conjunction with this change, HITS also began inviting Michigan Medicine users to “CLICK, CALL, or VISIT,” to request help, as follows:
- Click – on the online customer service portal (help.medicine.umich.edu)
- Call – the HITS Service Desk, 24/7, at 734-936-8000
- Visit – one of three walk-in “Help Me Now” locations
The upgrade is the result of a year-long effort by HITS to unify, streamline, and improve the service requests are managed, with a major focus on retiring legacy ticketing systems, and adopting a single, enterprise-wide platform to facilitate improved intake, more consistent tracking, better communication, and more effective follow-up. In addition, the new “How Can We Help?” service portal allows customers direct access to initiate many common requests, such as submitting a request for service or repair, requesting password resets, ordering software, devices, or other items, searching the HITS Knowledgebase, or checking on the status of an incident, request, or order.
