OpenEMR Restrict user


i need your assistance to check if we can restrict user to view or use some forms
example: every physician can view/use forms related to the physician specification, that can reduce the number of forms listed.

Thank you.


There is no default option to restrict forms based on user specification.There is in need of code customisation to restrict user.



Below are the scenario that we have to implement:

  1. We can add the one column into the register table form from_assess.
  2. Into form register section we can add the drop-down with users into the system.
  3. Ask user to select the form access user from that drop-down and by default login user should be selected

I would think this could be done through form access controls and acl!

i found a solution:

  1. go to ACL-- > add new record under encounter section named Dr. specification,
  2. Go to Forms Administration and change Access Control access of each Form according to from usage .
  3. go to ACL and add a secondary access to each user Depending to user specification,

Thank you
