Reminder: Ongoing RTLS Asset Management Audit

The audit includes testing the wireless system communication in all clinical areas with coverage and re-tagging assets. Teletracking RTLS staff are required to display proper RepTrax identification name tags. To report issues with RTLS, submit a Clinical Engineering Work Request on the Clinical Engineering page on the WakeMedWeb. Thank you for your cooperation and patience while the RTLS Asset Management system is fine tuned.

Get Your W-2 Electronically
The year is almost over and tax season is just around the corner. Wouldn’t it be nice to file your tax return and get that refund earlier this year? You can when you sign up for electronic W-2s. You’ll also be able to access and print prior year WakeMed W-2s when you need them. Choosing electronic W-2s in Lawson Employee Self Service is simple with this step-by-step guide. Note: If you opted in previously, you do not need to take any action this year. If you are unsure of your status, log in to Lawson Employee Self Service and verify that you can see W-2s from past years.
