What is the context?
Security Policies govern different aspects of data security in Meddbase. Each policy type (or certificate) governs a set of user permissions.
These permissions determine if or how users will be able to interact with data protected by a given policy or certificate, e.g. Company record protected by a Company Policy; Patient record protected by a Patient Policy.
Many permissions need to be used in conjunction with permissions governed by other certificates e.g. Company Certificate(s) or Document Certificate(s).
What is the purpose of the article?
This article provides a detailed description of user permissions governed by the Medical Certificate(s)*.
*A Medical Certificate can be assigned to an Appointment Type, under Admin > Appointment Admin > Security > Medical Policy Applied, although this is not mandatory.
Meddbase provides the ability to split patient medical record (e.g. OH vs GP) by means of assigning separate Medical Certificates to different Appointment Types, thus protecting the clinical notes, documents etc. captured/created during the respective appointment type. If Medical Certificate(s) are in use, a Meddbase user will have access to the part of the patient's medical record according to their permissions on the respective certificate(s).
