  • Improved tech support website returns to Tinker

    The 72nd Air Base Wing Communications Directorate is relaunching a useful web tool to assist Tinker Air Force Base’s computer users with their most common challenges. The Tier Zero website, a self-help tool which is available to almost any Tinker AFB network user, assists users with common tasks such as clearing web browser caches or connecting to network printers without the need to speak to the base’s help desk. “The Communications Directorate is constantly striving to ensure customer service, communications and mission support by improving our processes wherever we can,” said John Chiffy, 72nd Communications Directorate Operations Division chief. “We’re hoping Tier Zero will be our next success story.” The Tinker help desk typically handles 300 to 400 calls per day, according to Eric Robinson, Chickasaw Nation Industries help desk program manager. Robinson said the new system should reduce long hold times, abandoned calls and ultimately enhance the customer experience.

  • 72nd MDG COVID-19 clinic receives upgrades

    With the onset of coronavirus in March, the 72nd Medical Group clinic operations were significantly diminished in order to protect both its patients and staff, now as much as possible, operations are returning to normal. The response to the pandemic has progressed and what initially began as a pop-up tent clinic for COVID-19 patients has now evolved into three hardened structures, providing increased capabilities. The new clinic area is now located on the south end of the Medical Group parking lot, next to the Hill Conference Center. The Respiratory Clinic will feature new signage to direct vehicles in the proper direction, to streamline the process and make treatment more patient centered. “Once a vehicle enters, one of our teams will tend to the vehicle,” Capt. Audrick Yee, nurse practitioner said. “We’ll triage the individuals and keep them separate from the main clinic. Based off their screening results, they will be escorted to the appropriate area.” Yee is one of nearly 40 providers in the 72nd MDG, and is part of a rotational team servicing the Respiratory Clinic. In order to offer the best and safest care, the clinic will operate Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Providers will rotate as well, Yee said, so there will be lower rates of possible exposure.
