TROY, Mich., Dec. 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CareTech Solutions, an information technology (IT) and Web products and services provider launched today, Solution Found, a limited-time offer for hospitals to try its Service Desk, a healthcare-specific IT help desk, risk free.  

"We've installed Service Desk in more than 30 different hospitals, and in every single case, have extremely satisfied customers who tell us CareTech's healthcare IT help desk has elevated the performance and output of their hospital IT departments," said Karl Graham, senior director of Service Desk, CareTech Solutions. "Once Service Desk is up and running, end user satisfaction goes way up – as does productivity from the hospital IT resources that were spending their time handling remedy tickets or answering phone calls when the hospital really needs them to focus on running the critical application and network operations."
