Chart Access allows staff the option and control to restrict sensitive areas of a patient’s charts. With Chart Access enabled, the practice can protect the patient's privacy by allowing only the clinical staff member(s) involved in the patient's care to access sensitive areas of the patient's chart.
Based on the needs of the practice, the System Administrator can choose which level of privacy to enable:
- Clinical Notes: Allow staff to restrict access to the patient's clinical notes only. When access is restricted, the patient's clinical notes will only be accessible to assigned clinical staff members.
- All Clinical Data: Allow staff to restrict access to all of the patient's clinical data (e.g., vitals, notes, medication, etc). When access is restricted, the patient's clinical data will only be accessible to assigned clinical staff members.
Review the Chart Access Restrictions Preview table to see how the patient chart displays when enabled.
