Over the last couple of years, Diabetes:M Monitor steadily evolved into a trusted and reliable remote monitoring system for medical specialists. During this time, the platform established itself as a benchmark tool for a rapidly growing user base of diabetes care providers from around the world. Utilizing the latest technologies and changing trends in safety and security, Diabetes:M Monitor continues to improve.
One of the most sought-after functionalities is managing staff accounts and giving granular permissions to individual members. This would provide clinics, hospitals, and private practices the flexibility to have multiple team members take care of a pool of patients and significantly increase the efficiency of the delivered service. It would also allow the practice to hand out a single practice code to all patients instead of the personal code of each clinician.
The latest Monitor platform update allows hospital administrators or managers to add new members to the account and give them one of four tiers of rights to view and manage information. In addition, for the purpose of compliance with international regulations, an Audit Log was also added to the user interface. It provides a detailed record of every user action in the system.
Additional staff accounts are only available for paid Monitor plans. According to the subscription, the number of accounts the administrator can assign are:
- Basic – 1 additional staff account
- Standard – 4 additional staff accounts
- Pro – 9 additional staff accounts
To add a staff account, go to the “Staff” section in the main menu and click on the “Register” button. Fill in the required data and hit “Create”. Staff members use their own email and password to log in to the system.
Initially, every staff member has no permissions in the Monitor app, meaning they cannot yet monitor or manage patients nor view or manage other staff members.
There are four different permission tiers in Diabetes:M Monitor:
- View patients’ data – View the patients list and monitor their data.
- Manage patients’ data – Send, approve or deny monitoring requests for the clinic. Remove already monitored patients from the clinic.
- View staff – View staff members and their permissions.
- Manage staff – Create or remove existing staff accounts. Change staff permissions. Give or remove staff login rights.
This latest update is part of Sirma’s long-term plan of improving Diabetes:M Monitor’s feature set to better address the needs of diabetes care professionals and further expand their ability to track and manage patients remotely. Other exciting features are currently in the works, so stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.
