Let's Get Started

We're getting a new Office suite ready for you, the first step is updating Outlook for everyone.

Most of the changes are happening behind the scenes and for most people this will be very minimal, but there are some changes you might need to be aware of.

Preparing for Office 365

If you access email at home on any computer

If you need to access your work email from any computer (work, personal, etc. including Webmail) outside of the hospital’s network (offsite, at home, etc. - even if connected via Global Protect VPN).  You will need to have an app on your phone installed called “Duo” which will use two factor authentication to verify your identity when you login.

Download Duo: 

iPhone / Android

No action needed if:

  • you’re only accessing email from your phone and not a computer
  • you have already have Duo configured
  • you don’t need to access email from a computer off of the hospital’s network 

If you do need Duo installed, please call the help desk 775-445-8929.  The configuration and setup should take less than 5-10 minutes.  Please tell the technician that you need Duo configured.  You will be asked to provide your cell phone number and you’ll need to download the Duo application to your phone.  The technician will assist you through the process.
