Lesson 3: Assigning Contacts
In this lesson, we'll walk through changing a facility's contact assignments (Primary Contact, Secondary Contact, and Facility Administrator).

Contact assignments are specific to a data type. Your facility may have different contacts for Inpatient (IP), Emergency Department (ED), and Ambulatory Surgery (AS) data types.

As discussed in Users and Their Roles in Module 2: Basics for All Users, only a UAA can access user account maintenance functions.

Before you can assign contacts, you need to:

  1. Log on to MIRCal (see Accessing MIRCal in Module 2: Basics for All Users).
  2. Create a reporting profile (see Create a Reporting Profile in this module, Lesson 1). Make sure you select the correct data type for the contact assignments you want to make.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this lesson, you should be able to:

  • Change your facility's contact assignments

Scenario
In Lesson 1, Pam created a user account for Dave, a new director at CBT2. Pam now needs to assign Dave as CBT2's Secondary Contact for IP. Pam logs on to MIRCal and creates a reporting profile, selecting the IP data type. That's where this lesson begins.
