The IT Departments at Emory Healthcare and DeKalb Medical are working on getting all DeKalb Medical staff access to the Emory computer network and other applications. All DeKalb Medical staff will receive their new Emory Login ID on September 4 in a welcome packet distributed from their manager. The packet will contain a new Emory Employee number, Login ID and password. Staff should keep their handout secure. Staff should remember that they are responsible for the information accessed using their login ID and password.
Here are some additional responses to frequently asked questions about IT access.
Q: What do I need to do to receive my Emory Login ID?
Prior to receiving your new Emory Login ID, you need to attend the Emory Orientation and sign a HIPAA/Confidentiality statement. You cannot receive a Login ID without signing it. You also need to go into NetLearning and complete the Emory IT Onboarding CBL. This will provide instructions on how to login to each of the Emory applications you will be using.
Q: What will I use my Emory computer access for? Why do I need it?
It will be used to access the Emory Storefront (network), Outlook (Emory email), DUO (two factor authentication), and eVantage (HR Benefits). You will need to login to the Emory network to check your new Emory email and to enroll in Emory’s benefits thru eVantage.
Q: What about my current DeKalb computer logins?
All of your current logins to DeKalb applications will remain the same. You will continue to use them to access Lotus Notes, Allscripts SCM, and all the other systems you use to perform your daily job activities.
Q: Will our email change?
Yes, for a short period we will be using two email systems. Your primary email will remain DeKalb’s Lotus Notes. You will continue to access it the same way you do today. However, at hiring, all Emory employees receive an email using Microsoft Outlook, so you will receive a new Emory email address. This is used to communicate messages from Human Resources and important Emory announcements, so you should plan to check it periodically.
Q: What is DUO? Why do I need it?
Every day we hear news of computer data breaches, so passwords alone are no longer enough to protect sensitive information. DUO is an application that adds a second layer of security to your online account. This is done by requiring two factors to confirm your identity – something you know (your password) and something you have (like a text, phone call or an application message). You will be required to use DUO if you login to the Emory network from home or when you login to eVantage to see your banking information.
Q: I took the Emory IT Onboarding CBL in NetLearning, but I’m not sure I understand it all. How do I get help?
If you need some help with your Emory lT access, sign up for a Live Support session in NetLearning. Sessions will begin on September 9 at all three hospitals and will run through early October to provide personal assistance with your login questions.
