Clinical is a multi-user system. When operating in a networked environment it allows multiple users to share data, using the system concurrently.
Whether Clinical is installed on a single PC or across a network of many workstations, each user must be defined in MedicalDirector Clinical's user database. This database provides basic front-end security and access rights, and before you can begin using Clinical you must Log On to identify yourself to the system.

For example, practitioners can be set up with or without full access A security access permitting access to patient records, with the ability to add and edit history, immunisation, cervical screening, and antenatal data.

Pathology/Radiology requests cannot be generated. Pathology results cannot be checked. This level is appropriate for nursing staff who may need to add details of immunisations, cervical screening, antenatal visits, and so forth, after the practitioner has seen the patient. to all functions of the program, and restricted access can be placed on other users (such as reception or nursing staff) who will generally require access to differing but limited areas. Practice Managers can be setup to have access to the User database.
