Chart Admin Overview

In Work Def Admin User needs to be assigned to a clinical destop view that includes the chart viewer component.

The items the user sees in the Chart component of the clinical desktop are controlled by the view.

The System comes with 12 predefined views.

Enterprise views can be created and assigned to multiple users.

One or more personal views can be created for each individual user.

The user can access thier assigned views via a dropdown in the Chart component of the clinical desktop.

One view must be designated as the default.

If creating multiple enterprise views and default views should be created and assigned based on roles.(?)

Personal views should be used only to accommodate a user's personal preferences.
