THISIS Help Desk


Technical Assistance

If you encounter a problem or need help using THISIS, complete a Help Desk ticket (PDF : 300 kB). Do not submit private health information (PHI) with the help desk ticket.

A Central Office employee will work with you to resolve your issue. Inquiries unresolved at this level will be forwarded to THISIS analysts or supervisors for further review and assistance. You will be contacted about a solution when your case can be completed or closed. Some inquiries may require changes to the system or additional resources, and therefore may take some time to complete. Issues that impact system usability (such as bugs identified in the database) will need to be fixed and tested, but will be given high priority and resolved as soon as possible. Other requests, however, may entail improvements that will enhance, but not inhibit work, so these issues may be assigned a lower priority.

***PLEASE NOTE*** The Help Desk ticket MUST be completed in Adobe Reader. Completing the form in Chrome or another web browser window will prevent you from submitting the ticket to Central Office.

it will say “Please fill out only if you want to change the security question or answer.” It will never show you what the QUESTION WAS or what the ANSWER WAS. Select a question and write an answer, then select save. This step must be completed in order to reset or recover your password in the future.

A similar subtle notice is provided regarding password in Edit Profile. Note that it says “Please fill out password fields only if you want to change your password.”
