What roles can be assigned to clinic staff while adding staff ? 

There are three type of users in the healcon practice software : 'Owner' , 'Doctor' , 'Other Staff' . All these users can have different access type which has been mentioned below : 

1. Owner (USER TYPE) : First user who creates the account and adds clinic by default becomes the owner of the clinic. Currently there is no way to change owner of the clinic. Incase required , owner can email support@healcon.com to change owner of the clinic with valid reason for same . There can only be one owner of clinic . Only owner can view 'Subscription' & 'Payment' details related to the subscription of the clinic . 

2. Doctor (USER TYPE) : User type 'Doctor' are the doctors of the clinic and can be assigned following two access types ( Adding 'User Type' and assigning  'Access Type'  has been described in the next section of this article ) : 

a. Consultant [ ie Visiting Doctor] (Access Type) : 'Consultant' access type is assigned to doctors who are visiting doctors . These visiting doctors can only view records of the patients against whom an appointment has been scheduled with him (appointment can be schduled by himself or any other clinic staff) . They cannot view records of other patients of the clinic. However corresponding to his appointments , a visiting doctors (ie access type : Consultant) can go to EMR of the patient and view all the records of that particular patient. He can also create treatment plans , clinical notes , medical records , prescription, bill,payments etc for these patients (ie only those patients for whom an appointment has been scheduled with him ) . 

In this way, consultant is able to complete all workflows related to his patient (or patient whom he has been scheduled to attend) but cannot see other records of the clinic .

b. Administrator  (Access Type) : 'Administrator' access is assigned to doctors who are admin of the clinic and need access unrestricted access to all records and functionalities of the clinic .They can view all the details related to clinic except subscription and payment information corresponding to the healcon subscription .

3. Other Staff (USER TYPE) : User type 'Other Staff' include any staff other than doctors/owners of the clinic like front-desk , receptionist etc . They can access all the functionalities and records of the clinic but cannot be assigned any patient appointments given they are not doctors of the clinic.  ( Adding 'User Type' and assigning  'Access Type'  has been described in the next section of this article ) 

c. Receptionist (Access Type) : 'Receptionist' has access to all the modules of and records of the clinic . They can perform all workflows on behalf of doctors however are not allowed access of 'Manage Staff' so they cannot add new staff (can only be done by administrators/owners). Also they dont have permission to change access type of any user . They cannot be assigned any patient appointments given they are not doctors of the clinic.

d. Administrator (Access Type) : 'Administrator' of user type 'Other Staff' have access to all the modules and records of the clinic including 'Manage Staff'.  They cannot be assigned any patient appointments given they are not doctors of the clinic.
