Adding New Persons to an existing system
Adding a New User in VistA
The best way to add a new user into your VistA System is to use “clone a user”. First you need to set up different users that represent your job areas. This would include clinical applications coordinators, pharmacists, providers, nurses, front office clerks, Medical Assistants, etc. Then you can use them as the New Person entry to clone. The menu option is “Grant Access by Profile”. However, once the user is cloned, you generally have more work to do:
1) Change the Access Code to something more memorable
2) In the case of Providers, add NPI number, DEA number, Authorized to write medications, Encounter Form, “Hospital Location”, Autofinish Location, Autofinish Printer.
3) Electronic Signature code
4) Electronic Signature Block
5) Additional Menus and keys if necessary.
6) Fileman Access Level.
Please note this is only a guide. There are thousands of Menu options and probably hundreds of keys. You may need to do some research.
The next section assumes you do not have an appropriate “New Person” to clone. It is primarily reference material if you do.
To add a new person, start with the User Menu and choose ADD A NEW USER TO THE SYSTEM.. The following New Person is an ANALYST and has super user powers in VistA: Your IRM/CAC might have these menus and keys:
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~ PuTTY log 2009.09.22 10:37:44 -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
user Inquiry Select NEW PERSON NAME: dewa DEWAYNE,ROBERT RED IRM ANALYST DEVICE: TELNET DEWAYNE,ROBERT (#9)
Number 9 is the DUZ number, in a pinch, you at the GTM Prompt you can
S DUZ=9 <enter> D ^XUP
This will get you into a programmer mode and allow you to set up any number of users, For this reason, we do not let many people have access to the VistA roll and scroll through the Prompt. See the commander scripts done by Ignacio Valdes to get around this security hole.

This line is actually not found in the USER MENU Prompts. I use Fileman to create the Electronic Signature (so I don't need to give VistA roll and scroll access) I also use Fileman Enter/edit of New Person file to enter: Authorized to write medications, Electronic Signature Block, NPI and DEA number.
I believe you “Authorized the write medications for most medications, a DEA number for Narcotic Prescription Privileges, and either the NPI number ot the appropriate Person Class to “Bill”.
