Technical Support Level of support - specific extent of technical assistance in the total range of assistance that is provided by an information technology product (such as a software product) to its customers. Some companies name their levels of support basic and advanced. Others call them level 1, level 2, and level 3, or Level A, level B, and level C

Level of support - specific extent of technical assistance in the total range of assistance that is provided by an information technology product (such as a software product) to its customers.

Some companies name their levels of support basic and advanced.

Others call them level 1, level 2, and level 3, or

Level A, level B, and level C

Support Typically, when a software user calls for technical assistance, a level 1 technician tries to answer all questions, which might include help with simple problems or general "how-to" questions. If the question is more complex, the user is passed on to the level 2 technician. e.g. advanced features and possible product bugs or failures. If the level 2 technician cannot help the caller, a level 3 technician may be consulted either by the customer or by the level 2 technician. Research and investigation may be required - takes time. Some companies offer certain levels of support only on a fee basis.

Support You are having difficulty with a certain feature in your EMR Can’t answer question from the in-built ‘Help’ feature Who would you call or email? Best bet: product/technical support

You are having difficulty with a certain feature in your EMR

Can’t answer question from the in-built ‘Help’ feature

Who would you call or email?

Best bet: product/technical support

Scenarios Best – question is answered immediately and you get back to work Worst – you are escalated through higher levels of support. Your question is unanswered Ultimate worst – “Sorry, please contact your hardware or network supplier. This is not a software problem”…. Right! Costly and Frustrating Satisfaction level is reduced
