Set Up Users
Your LabLynx Implementation Engineer will help and instruct you, showing you how to set up users, including login ID and password, password expiration, inactivity auto-logout, etc., level of access and more.
When setting up a user in the LIMS/LIS, a Profile must be assigned that specifies the access level the user is allowed. For example, here are three default access level profiles in a Physician Office Laboratory (POL) LIS:
- Lab Manager - This is the top level of access, and allows all administrative LIMS/LIS functions.
- Med Tech/Asst - This is the standard lab user, with the profile designed for all standard laboratory functions.
- Office Staff - This user/profile allows submitting of assay requests/orders and viewing/issuing of reports. It does not allow results data entry or other laboratory activities.
As shown in the screenshot, access levels can be different for the same individual for each department or lab site. Again, the assignment of these profiles is performed during setup and training, described in the User Management section of the manual. Your particular access profiles will vary according to your specific requirements, and you can add and/or modify profiles to suit your needs.
