This is an Archived Manual For Older Software: When you need to add users, change a password for an employee, disable a user, or set roles and permissions for PCC products and services, use the User Administration tool in PCC EHR. The Practice Management window contains an older, under-the-hood user administration tool. This article is the manual for that program.
As of PCC 8.15, the functions in this program are deprecated. You should only use this tool if you are troubleshooting a user account problem on your system, you need to adjust access to a non-PCC EHR database, or similar.
For more information, contact PCC Support.
