Decide how you are going to use e-RS within the practice and consider what role each user will have in terms of handling patient referrals.
e-RS is a role-based application; all staff members that are using the system will need a smartcard with the appropriate access rights. Each person logging on to e-RS will have different areas of the application available to them depending on those access rights.
Your local CCG or CSU will have a registration manager and registration agents who will be able to advise you on required smartcard roles and organise smartcards for all staff members, both clinical and non-clinical, within the practice.
