Response Time

We will respond to your request for service within one business day, and your request will be resolved within 8 business days.

The Department of Medicine divides Information Technology work into two categories:

  • Incidents: work that involves restoring normal service due to outage or non-functioning of existing systems or services
  • Requests: work that involves the addition of new systems or services not currently in production. This includes project work.

Both Incidents and Requests are logged as tickets in the Emory University Service Now system. Check the status of an existing ticket
