How do I contact the MSC staff for assistance and support?

The fastest option is to open a Help Desk ticket. MSC staff receive notifications with every new ticket.

Take the time to view the MSC Frequently Asked Questions to see if the answer to your problem exists in our Knowledge Base.

The ticket system is continuously monitored Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm. 

Down system during normal business hours (M-F from 8am-5pm)

First open a Help Desk ticket to ensure that staff in the office are immediately notified.

Please watch the MSC-Discuss list for system annoucements.

Down system after 5pm on weekdays

At this time, there is no on call phone coverage Monday-Friday after 5pm. If you experience a down system emergency during these hours, please contact SirsiDynix Critical Care.
