Permissions

The Permissions Module is represented by the padlock icon, and is the section where user access is assigned or restricted for each employee within the CentralReach organization account.

Getting Started / Permissions Admin and Organization Accounts

The “Admin Permission” is the most powerful permission CentralReach offers, outside of logging in as the main organization account. A user assigned the Admin Permission is referred to as an “Admin account” if they have all permissions turned on, or are in the System Admin permission group.

Unless admin users are logged in with the main organization account’s credentials, they will be unable to perform the following functions as these are only granted specifically to main organization accounts:

  • Share a task template
  • Delete medical records with a locked note
  • Add, edit, or view organization Claim Settings
  • Edit Additional Settings
  • Add Activity & Call Log types
  • View employees’ history
  • Add, remove, or edit Accepted Insurances and authorization week calculation, and set blackout dates
  • Add Cancellation Reasons and edit Schedule Settings
  • Turn on agreed rates in the Billing module
  • Set up and configure Redshift accounts
  • Set up and configure automated exports (Legacy feature)

CR Mobile / Permissions CR Mobile Permissions

To access CR Mobile, users must enable the following permissions in the Permissions module:

  1. Access
    • Access to the CR Mobile application.
  2. Provider Signatures
    • Allows providers to capture their signature in the mobile application.

Please note, providers without the (Provider Signatures) permission will not have the “Signature” option in Appointment Details, and cannot capture signatures in CR Mobile.

Permissions Custom Permission Groups

Custom permission groups are permission combinations created and defined by an organization that can be edited at any time. CentralReach recommends custom permission groups to be created based on job descriptions and responsibilities, so employees can be added or removed from the group, depending on their role or when changing roles.

Permissions Permissions Explained

The  Permissions module allows the organization account to give employees access to CentralReach’s modules and features based on the employees’ job type and responsibilities. Permissions control what employees can see and do within their CentralReach account.

At the beginning of implementation, the organization account is the only one with access to the  Permissions module. Permission to access the  Permissions module is the most powerful permission a user can have, as it directly controls what other users are allowed to see and do in CentralReach. It is CentralReach’s recommendation that permission to access the  Permissions module is kept only for the main organization account, or granted to users who must have complete admin access.

Permissions  module permissions:

  1. Access
    • Basic access to the  Permissions module
      • Allows users to access the  Permissions module within their CentralReach account.
  2. Groups > Manage
    • Allows managing groups & permissions for employees
      • Allows users to add and remove other users from permission groups, and edit the permissions granted in any permission group.
