Creating a Read Only Account in Allscripts Enterprise EHR
In the case where a group may need to create a read only account for any purpose (auditing, records viewing, etc) the following must happen. In v10 go to System Administration, Security tab. In v11 go to TWAdmin->Security Admin->Security. Do the following:
1. Create Security Classifications At least two Security Classifications should be created. One group should have access to the Chart-Edit Security Code and the other will not. Make sure to add the Security Classifications that will allow editing to all the users that need it.
2. Add the Security Codes to the Security Classifications As you create the security groups you will want to add the security codes to the groups that will need to be able to access and edit the charts. For the Read Only group you will just leave the security classification codes off of the Group.

3. Turn on the Security Gates
You will need to find the Security Gates and ensure they are active. For example, for creating a Read Only account you would need to find the Chart-Edit Security Gate and activate that. Any user that does not have a Security Classification with the Chart-Edit Security Code will no longer be able to edit charts.

IF YOU DO NOT CREATE THE GROUPS FIRST, YOU RISK LOCKING OUT THE TW USERS BY ACTIVATING THE SECURITY GATES.
You must still create the necessary Workplaces and Roles/Rights to see the menus.
Now when you login, you can only view chart information. "Edit", "New", etc are greyed out:
