EIS Now Supports Apple Desktops, Laptops

As of Aug. 17, EIS is now fully supporting Apple desktops and laptops as an alternate standard to "WinTel" PCs. A support team of experienced and Apple-certified desktop engineers and technicians has been assembled to address all of your Apple support and repair needs, and arrangements have been made with a local authorized dealer and repair center for expedited delivery of parts, devices and software.

As part of the support effort, EIS will be identifying the existing Apple devices on the Cedars-Sinai network and offering assistance to Mac users to bring them up to date with best practices and medical center standards for email configuration, OS X version, Microsoft Office, antivirus software and hard disk encryption.

The Mac version of Microsoft Office is covered for updates under our CSMC-Microsoft Enterprise Agreement. How-to videos are available to Cedars-Sinai users who wish to expand their knowledge of Apple software.

As with all other desktop support, please call the EIS Help Desk at (310) 423-6428 if you have a question about Apple software or a problem with any Cedars-Sinai-owned Apple desktop, laptop or mobile device. A new problem ticket will be created and assigned to the Apple Support Team.

Please feel free to email Chief Technology Officer Ray Duncan or the manager of the Apple Support Team, Amor Garlitos-Gonzales, with your feedback and suggestions.
