In openemr, I have 2 users, one is myself - admin and physician (for tthis post called PHYSICIAN A) and 2nd is another physician (for this post called PHYSICIAN B).
Physician A has administrative role and is also a provider. Has patients under him in the emr. Physician B has only physician role and has patients under him too. In the user gui, I have selected calender authorisation as only mine for physician B.
when physician B logs in, he is able to see physician A’s calendar just by clicking his name in the small user box on the calendar screen. Should this be the case?
Even physician B can see all the patients in the patient list, be it physician A’s patient or B’s patient. Physician B is also able to checkout the encounters of the A’s patients, can edit them and save changes. Dont you think this authorization should depend on physician A, who can allow to look into a certain patients encounter to other physician only if he wants? Shouldnt there be procedure for a physician to share his patient to other physicians of the clinic at his/her will,only then the other physician can see the patient details/encounter details of that patient?
