IO: Admin Access
This articles applies to Valant IO
The “Admin Access” permission gives users ability to control admin functionality of Valant IO, including controlling permissions, resetting passwords, and other settings. In the Valant Private Practice Suite (the version prior to Valant IO) users with Admin Access went to a different module upon login to access administrative functionality. To make it easier for users to access administrative tasks, this functionality was built into Valant IO. Users with Admin Access can login to the EHR and access the administrative settings without needing to switch to a different module.
