IMPPACT IS LIVE




I'd like to start by saying I greatly appreciate everyone's patience and understanding today!

This week marks the start of a new chapter for MedStar Health system with its new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, PeopleSoft. It will create streamlined data and process standards to support efficient, standardized operations and facilitate future benchmark capabilities, across all MedStar entities. Once fully implemented, it will connect the human resource functions (time-sheets) to the research grants/contracts to all financial functions (supplies, bills, etc). We know that on its first day going live that PeopleSoft is not perfect but this is not uncommon with the implementation of such a large, systemwide new platform so I appreciate everyone keeping the long term goal in mind as we work through the short term needs. 




Enter Time & Labor Online

What is most important today is to ensure that you are able to access time and labor through PeopleSoft. Use your MedStar Network ID and password to log into ERP.MedStar.net. Be sure to fill in your time for last week (October 20-26) and this week (October 27-November 2) so that you are paid for a full two weeks on November 8. If you are not able to log in, please contact the Command Center at 301-560-7360 or MHRI-ECC@medstar.net. (Please note that we are currently experiencing problems with adding combo codes to the timesheets. We will let you know once it has been resolved.)



Need help? Call the Command Center

A command center dedicated to helping MedStar Health Research Institute associates with issues related to PeopleSoft will be operating Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are at UTC, you can drop into Conference Room A. Otherwise, call 301-560-7360 or email MHRI-ECC@medstar.net. *If you have an urgent issue before or after MHRI’s command center hours, call the IMPPACT Command Center at 1-877-777-8787, Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

We talked at the fall town hall meetings about "system-ness" and initiatives that are going to bring the MedStar Health entities closer together. Please also remember to be nimble and have patience--PeopleSoft is one of these initiatives that will take time, and in the long run, be an efficient and good tool for us all.
