What are Administrator (Admin) permissions?

An Administrator can edit settings for the practice’s whole EHR account, such as setting edit levels and adding users. This is independent of edit levels—any user can be given Administrator rights.

The following is a list of Administrator permissions:
  • Add/deactivate users
  • Reset user passwords
  • Change login emails
  • Reset verification phone numbers
  • Change user edit levels
  • Edit/Enter Basic Information (Practice & Users)
  • Edit/Enter Identifiers (Practice & Users)
  • Add additional administrators
  • Add/Edit Facilities
  • Edit Messaging settings
  • Edit Drug Alert settings
  • Edit Patient Communication settings
  • Edit Specimen Collection settings
  • Add/Edit Chart Note Types
  • Edit Scheduler settings
  • Edit the status of measures on the Meaningful Use Dashboard
Granting administrative permissions
Navigate to Settings in the top right corner of the EHR, then select Users. Select the provider whose role you would like to change, then scroll down to Login Info.

From there, you can determine whether you want the user to be an Admin or a Non-admin. Then, click Save.
