Modified on Fri, 12 Apr at 6:03 PM

Understanding and effectively managing roles and permissions is crucial in maintaining the security and operational efficiency of your organization within EasyMedStat. This guide explains the role management system, how to configure permissions, and introduces the pre-configured roles that come with your organization.

Understanding Roles and Permissions

Roles in EasyMedStat are sets of permissions that determine what actions a user can perform within the platform. Permissions are specific rights granted to users that enable them to perform certain tasks, such as editing data, managing users, or viewing sensitive information.

Types of Roles

  1. Organization Roles: These roles are applicable across the entire organization and generally include administrative permissions such as managing users, teams, and financial settings.
  2. Team Roles: These are specific to teams and control access to actions within a team, like managing team-specific data or projects.

Managing Roles

Pre-configured Roles

Your EasyMedStat organization comes with a set of pre-configured roles designed to cover the most common functions and responsibilities within a typical organization. These roles can be used as-is or edited to better fit your specific needs.

Creating a New Role

  1. Access Role Settings: Navigate to Settings > Roles in the EasyMedStat dashboard.
  2. Create Role: Click on “+ New Role” and enter the role name and its scope (organization or team-specific).
  3. Assign Permissions: Select the permissions that correspond to the responsibilities you wish to assign to the role.
  4. Save the Role: After configuring the role and its permissions, save the role to make it available for assignment.

Editing an Existing Role

  1. Select the Role to Edit: From the list of roles, click on the role you wish to modify, including any pre-configured roles that need adjustment.
  2. Modify Permissions: Adjust the permissions as necessary to accommodate changes in job functions or organizational policies.
  3. Update the Role: Save the changes to ensure the role reflects the new permissions.

Deleting a Role

  1. Choose the Role: Identify the role you want to delete from the role management page.
  2. Check Dependencies: Ensure no users are currently assigned to the role. If users are assigned, reassign them to appropriate roles before deletion.
  3. Delete the Role: Remove the role from the system, understanding that this action is irreversible.

Best Practices for Role Management

  • Regular Review: Periodically review roles and permissions to ensure they align with current organizational needs and security policies.
  • Principle of Least Privilege: Assign users only the permissions they need to perform their tasks to minimize security risks.
  • Clear Definitions: Maintain clear definitions and documentation for each role to ensure understanding and proper use across the organization.
