The TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR) has a number of account-wide and user-specific security settings to keep your account and patient data secure. The following security settings complement the role-based user permission.
Account-wide security settings
Administrators, account owners, or users with the Edit Other Users permission can configure the following account-wide security settings, which apply to all users in your cilnic:
Enable or disable two-factor authentication for users in your clinic
User-specific security settings
Each user can configure the following security settings for their personal CHR user account. Any changes affect only your own account.
Change your password: Was you password compromised? Change it on a regular basis to keep your account secure. See Changing your password.
Choose your two-factor authentication method: No matter your permission level in the CHR, you can enable or disable two-factor authentication for yourself. You can also change how you receive two-factor authentication codes. See Customizing your two-factor authentication method.
Set your timeout duration: By default, you must enter you password after 15 minutes of inactivity. You can customize this timeout period. See Setting your personal timeout duration.
