Managing Users in Trading Partner Accounts

October 10, 2013

It is very important for Trading Partners to actively manage user accounts for the MIHMS Health PAS Online Portal. Managing users can be done by clicking on “Account Maintenance” and then “Manage Users.” Existing users may be edited, deactivated or reactivated by clicking on the row of the user you would like to manage. The Administrator of the account and users with a security role of “‘R7-User Management” are allowed to use these features.

Deactivation or managing the security roles of users is essential when access requirements have changed or when access is no longer needed. Deactivation of individuals no longer working for your organization is imperative as it will help prevent inappropriate access to Protected Health Information (PHI).
