When your organization purchases MedBridge, our team will create an organization for you that houses all of your users. Within that organization, you can add additional hierarchy to better organize your staff. For example, you can create a clinic that houses all users at a facility in your organization so you can easily assign content to all staff at that clinic or manage all patients at that clinic.
Within the MedBridge system, a hierarchy can have three levels: practice, region, and clinic. All MedBridge users must be assigned to at least one clinic but can be assigned to as many clinics as you like.
- The lowest level is a clinic. A clinic is often used to house all clinicians within a specific facility. For example, if you have five separate outpatient facilities, it can be helpful to create five clinics within MedBridge and assign the users that work at each facility to a clinic within the MedBridge system. You can create as many clinics in your organization as you like.
- You can nest multiple clinics within a region and can be a helpful way to group facilities that often work together. For example, if your organization has facilities in multiple states, you can create a region for each state, and nest each clinic in the region associated with the state they are located in.
- Practice is the top level of the hierarchy. Your organization can only have one practice, and all regions and clinics will exist under the umbrella of that practice.
By default, when you purchase MedBridge, we will create a simple hierarchy that consists of one practice, one region, and one clinic. If you would like to add additional clinics or regions to your organization, contact your account manager or MedBridge support.
