System Parameters

If you belong to the System Administrators user group, you can configure Communicare by setting system parameters.

Note: Disabling system parameters may result in existing patient data becoming inaccessible to users. However, the data remains on the database. System parameters should be changed only by Administrators who understand the consequences of the changes. Changing system parameters may result in functions described in the help not being available at your installation.

All system parameters affect the entire Communicare system and all workstations attached. For example, if Appointments are disabled by deselecting that system parameter from a particular workstation, Appointments are disabled for all workstations.

To change system parameters:
  1. Select File > System Parameters.
    If you do not belong to the System Administrators user group, you cannot see the System Parameters menu item.
  2. Update the required parameters.
  3. Click Save.
  4. In the Enter Authority Code window, enter your authority code and click OK.
    Note: Because of the extensive and serious consequences that changes to organisation parameters can cause, this code is provided only to Communicare Administrators. The authority code should not be shared.
