There are two purge options in this application.
The “Purge Non-sensitive Patients from Security Log” (PPAT) option allows you to remove non-sensitive patients from your DG SECURITY LOG file. BE VERY CAREFUL as this will delete all record of users accessing this patient even while the patient was designated as sensitive! You are not given the choice to just remove specific patients.
The “Purge Record of User Access from Security Log” deletes old user access entries from the log for a select patient or all patients during a specified date range. However, any access made to a sensitive patient record must be kept in the log a specific number of days based on your site parameter.
These options assist you in keeping your file clean and easy to maintain.
