Creating and Assigning the Medical Roles in ZIMS R2
Medical Roles are added, edited and assigned in the R1 (Animal Husbandry) module under My Institution, just as other Roles are found. As the default, your institution will not have any Medical Roles.
The ISIS Global Administrator will give one person at your institution a Medical Admin Role when you approach your Go Live! deployment date for ZIMS R2.
Usually this is your Local Admin but let your ISIS representative know what staff member will be managing the Medical Roles at your institution so they can assign them this Role.
Once the Medical Admin Role has been assigned, you will see the Medical Roles grid if you have been assigned a medical Role.
Once you have been given the Role the medical
module will appear in the Start menu.
Medical Admin has all rights to all
functionality of the R2 module. It does not,
however, provide any access to the R1, or animal
husbandry, ZIMS module. This is an ISIS Role
so it cannot be edited and is greyed out.
The Medical Admin will then assign other
staff members appropriate Medical Roles.
It is important to note that a Medical Role
cannot be assigned to a staff member who
does not have any ZIMS access.
In this example Kendra Keeper does not
have any access to ZIMS, so View/Assign
Medical Roles is greyed out and cannot
be selected for her. At minimum, an Eye On
ZIMS Role should be assigned.
There are two ISIS medical Roles – Medical Admin and Veterinarian. In addition, just as in the R1 module, you can create custom Medical Roles. Below we created a custom Role for our Veterinary Technicians. When creating custom Roles DO NOT use the Medical Admin Role as a template as this will allow the ability to add and assign other Medical Roles. When creating custom Roles start without a template or select a custom Role you have already created.
