Assignable Roles

What is a Telmediq assignable role?

A Telmediq assignable role is a set of automation scripts which are run when an end user assumes a specific role. An example of an assignable role would be 4West Charge Nurse.


What does an assignable role do?

An assignable role is capable of the following actions:

  1. Adding or removing a user from a broadcast group upon logging in or ending their shift
  2. Adding a user to a specified Telmediq department, which would take on the permissions, workflow, etc. for that department
  3. Applying a patient filter to a user account so they only see patients from their assigned department


Who can see an assignable role?

Users populated into a Telmediq department, either manually through the Telmediq UI or as a result of the user being added as a member to the associated group in Active Directory, are able to see assignable roles pertaining to their direct facility location. Users marked as shift users will be automatically removed from the assignable role when ending their shift.


What is a Telmediq shift user?

A Telmediq shift user is given the ability to access assignable roles upon logging into either the desktop application or mobile application. If enabled, the shift user will be prompted at log in to set a date and time to have their shift automatically end.  Ending a shift would remove the user from any assignable roles, patient filters, and care team assignments. These functions are added to the user by assuming a specific assignable role at login.
