Staff privileges and system security are two common features of surgical instrument tracking systems that we are often asked about.
Hourly rates or process costing information, for example, is usually considered confidential and for this reason CSSD and theatre managers need to be able to regulate who can and who cannot access this level of detail.
Network IT adminstrators too, have an interest in this topic as they need to ascertain the level of security provided by the tracking application.
