Health Sciences Computer and Device Support

Get coordinated computer and device support for UMN health science researchers and staff 

Overview

Health Sciences Technology (HST) and the University's Technology Help (1-HELP) support centers coordinate providing technology help for Health Sciences customers. This integration provides 24-hour, seven day-a-week (24/7) access and enables HST to focus on the more complex and unique needs of the Health Sciences.

HST also helps Health Sciences affiliates purchase and install new hardware and software or add devices and software to your existing system.

Highlights

  • Technology Help staff triage and assist with tier 1 related issues. If the issue requires escalation, HST will be conferenced in and assist you. If a field technician needs to be dispatched, an HST desktop technician will coordinate with you.
  • For clinical application support, HST works closely with Fairview and MHealth to ensure University users are able to access the Fairview/MHealth system. Foreseeable events such as new equipment orders, network printer moves, computer moves, and operation system upgrades are entered as Projects and scheduled with the customer.
  • We try to help with hand-held computer devices but cannot commit to support or maintain the vast array of devices that are available for purchase.
