Assigning functions to CAISI program roles

Every agency has a number of roles, for example, housing worker, counselor, or nurse. Within an agency, each program set up in the CAISI system must have levels of access defined for staff members. Each program must define what functions, within that program, each role can have access to. For example, Agency A has staff that consists of counselors, nurses and intake workers. Program B within that agency must define the access for those roles. Program B defines access such that nurses have access to the medical file, prescriptions (read-only) and all counselor and intake notes. Counselors have access to counselor issues/notes, read-only nurse issues/notes and intake worker notes. Intake workers l have access to read-only counselor issues and intake issues/notes.
