Managing INRstar Users - Login Roles Permissions

Due to the potentially serious clinical consequences of an incorrect warfarin dose it is important for your practice to limit INRstar access to staff who are familiar with the management of anticoagulation therapy and who have been trained in its correct use.

Each authorised user will need a user name and password to gain access to INRstar. INRstar will check the password against the user name and will only allow access if the two entries match correctly.

We recommend the lead clinician with overall responsibility for Anticoagulation Management takes responsibility for the management of INRstar within the organisation.

Important Notice

It is the organisation's responsibility to determine their Anticoagulation Protocols specifying which Clinical Roles can undertake certain treatment activities. The allocation of roles to users should comply with local protocols.

All Clinical Users of INRstar who are involved with patient treatments should regularly attend updates in Anticoagulation.

To add a user to the system select 'Options' in the navigation bar, 'Location Management' in the tab below and then 'Users' in the Manage Location(s) section.

 Click the 'Add User' button.


 Enter the following user details...
Full Name: Enter the individual's full name including their Title.
Username: It is recommended that the individual's NHS email address is entered.
