Viewing Rights

Viewing Rights define access levels to clinical data. The rights themselves are maintained by the Viewing Rights Maintenance program.

Once a right has been defined it can be by linked to any number of Clinical Item Types by setting the Viewing Right property in the Clinical_Item_Type_Properties program. The rights should then be granted to appropriate groups of users with the User_Groups program.

It is strongly recommended that you use the Definition column to fully define exactly what each right is intended to be used for. Failure to do so may result in the right being misunderstood and consequently misused at some time in the future.

Users can allocate a suitable viewing right to individual progress notes and documents.
