Shared IT Services returns to the School of Medicine

The Shared IT Services (SITS) program continues to move forward. Unit migrations to SITS remains a top priority of the Office of the Chief Information Officer and Vice Chancellor of IT at Washington University in St. Louis.

Since May, SITS has migrated an added 3,000 workstations this summer, and is closely approaching 7,000 total workstation completions. SITS has been on the Danforth Campus during the summer months, and has now reported that the Brown School migrations are complete and will next enter into stabilization phase. August marks the return to the Department of Medicine (DOM) for SITS to migrate remaining units. You may recall, as a part of the schedule recalibration announced, SITS implementation teams will pause Wave I migrations scheduled after DOM in order to reduce interference with Epic’s June 2 go-live and post-stabilization efforts. See an FAQ article on those changes here.

Since our last update, Danforth and Medical School Public Affairs have completed their Workstation Migrations, as well as Danforth Facilities completed their Workstation Migrations on July 20th, SITS has now completed Brown/IPH migrations and the Undergrad Admissions/Student Financial Services migrations. Pathology is currently at the 99% Discovery status, and Ortho has reported 25% of their Discovery phase complete.

Later this month, SITS returns to the DOM to start transitioning the remaining units that were not migrated in early 2018. Currently, SITS leadership is working on unveiling an updated migration schedule, as well as improving the support model. To see what units have already migrated, check out the list  here.
