DOH Division System - Prod Install

HEROS

Internal components of HEROS including a HEROS Admin area for Fiscal Year Budgets, Ordering Options, Rounds, and Miscellaneous Accounts. The Dashboard displays a summary view of applications, agencies, and budget. HEROS Users can create Agencies and Applications, as well as process both from start to finish. Workflow logic has been put in place:

  • Application Status should flow as follows: Unsubmitted, Submitted, Received, Returned (if applicable), Re-Submitted (if applicable), Approved or Rejected, Completed.
  • Once Submitted, an Application cannot be altered.
  • Applications can be withdrawn (if Application Status is “Submitted”).
  • Once an Application Status is “Received,” (or beyond) it can no longer be withdrawn.
  • An Application that is “Returned” can be modified and re-submitted.
  • Before an application can be Approved, the Agency must be Verified (MMCAP verification, Meets Reporting Requirements, Cardinal Account Creation).
  • Before an Agency can be Verified, it must be Initially Approved.

Rx Log

This module will initially replace the “pharmacy mail log.” Users can create a new Entry (Create Rx button) and select the Drug Name (generic), Strength, Program, County, Priority, Mail Type, Rx Date, Script Status, leave Notes, and Flag an Entry. Once saved, a User will be able to upload an attachment to the Entry (presumably the scanned prescription received by mail). Attachments can be uploaded and viewed on the Entry List screen, as well as on the Edit Entry screen (Attachment tab). Because the Rx Log will contain PHI, certain security features have been integrated into the module:

  • 2 Factor Authentication is required for accessing Rx Log module. Users will have to register a 2FA device before they can access to the module.
  • Inactivity Timeout will have to be enabled for a User before they can be given access to the module.
  • Rx Log entries cannot be deleted; they can only be marked “inactive.” A security permission in the module give the ability to mark an Entry as Active/Inactive; only users with the permission can change this.
  • There is a security permission to access the Rx Log Admin area, where Script Statuses can be created and managed; only users with this permission will have access to the area.
  • All attachments and attachment names are encrypted.
  • Only fields that do not potentially contain Protected Health Information will be allowed to be displayed as a column in the Rx List screen.
  • Any and all changes to an Entry are captured in the Entry Audit History.
  • Historic adding/deleting of attachments is also captured, and users can view deleted attachments.
  • Accessing the Entry List screen, and Audit History itself, is also captured in the Audit History.
  • A security permission in the module controls who has access to the Audit History; only users with the security permission can access it.

Red Book

There are two permissions for Red Book: Read-Only, and Create/Edit Non-Red Book. Read-Only users will be able to access and see everything in the Red Book module. Users with the Create/Edit Non-Red Book security permission will be able to add a non-Red Book entry in the module, as well as make changes to existing non-Red Book entries.

Admin

Users

  • The User List is a place to view users in the DOH Division System.
  • From the Edit User page, user settings and security can be managed. Security profiles can be added to a user here to control which areas of the system they have access to. Two-factor authentication is supported and allows FIDO2 compliant devices. An inactivity timeout can be set to force a user off the system after five minutes of inactivity. Both 2FA and the inactivity timeout are required to view PHI.
  • Login history can be viewed for the entire system on the main Login History screen. Login history for a single user can be seen on the Edit User screen.

Security

  • Security Profiles are used to define security permissions. When multiple security profiles are assigned to a user, the permissions on the security profiles are combined. This can be used to assign roles to users and control access to resources.
  • Reports
    • The Profile Permissions report shows the permissions associated with a security profile.
    • The User Permissions report shows the combined security profile permissions for a user.
    • The Profile Mapping report shows which users are associated to a security profile.
    • The Users Who Can Change Security report shows which users have "Can Change Security?" enabled on the Edit User screen. This option allows people to change permissions in security profiles. The ability to set which security profiles are associated to a user is a separate permission in the Admin module of the Edit Security Profile screen.

Global Audit History

  • Area where changes throughout the system are tracked. Users cannot access this area without first registering a 2FA device, and enabling Inactivity Timeout (because Protected Health Information could potentially be visible here).
