Beyond Ticket Resolution to Organizational Outcomes

A multi-facility healthcare system was struggling to hire and retain qualified staff to efficiently manage their help desk operations.
Working with CDW, the customer defined the following needs:
  • Prioritize employee experience
  • Increase retention and minimize turnover
  • Improve ticketing and reporting processes across all facilities
  • Increase response times and reduce need for oversight
  • Gain agility for the ebb and flow of IT support needs

Continual Collaboration Yields
a Comprehensive Solution

CDW Integrated Services experts engaged deeply with the customer’s IT team as well as clinical stakeholders to assess needs based on the help desk staff’s experience. They then vetted, recommended and introduced a best-fit help desk replacement solution from Mechdyne, whose end-user help desk support can enable 24/7 service and resolution.
To ensure smooth integration between the organization’s legacy system and the new help desk solution, CDW also coordinated engineering resources who could guide the transition.

A Dynamic Help Desk Model Drives
a Better Experience for All

The healthcare system reduced its risk by decreasing the amount of staff turnover. The new model improves ticket entry, tracking and reporting — all important variables for driving an empowered employee experience — and allows for responsive adjustments based on staffing needs.
Here’s why it worked:
  • A thorough discovery process included weekly calls and collaboration with the organization’s IT and clinical stakeholders.
  • The model allowed for agile adjustments in the number of staff employed based on need — an essential cost-saving measure for seasonal fluctuation.
  • Engineering coordination made for seamless integration between the old and new systems and built a trusted partnership and employee confidence.
  • A combined focus on employee experience and help desk efficiency enabled both human and business outcomes.
What’s next?
With more effective data from the new help desk solution’s improved reporting processes, the healthcare system’s IT and help desk teams can draw more informed insights for future digital transformation initiatives.
