Site is a concept in the Allscripts Enterprise EHR that typically refers to a physical location in the organization. Most clients will have multiple physical locations and this dictionary is meant to store that information. When users log into Allscripts Enterprise EHR, they have to choose a default location and can change it if they float. The site is used to drive report addresses in many cases and most clinical items store the site that a clinical item was entered at, so it is also useful for tracking purposes.

Site also allows users to have different print defaults for each location that they work at. When a user sets their site appropriately, the system will automatically know their default printer when previous defaults had been set or defined.
