Facility Systems and Contacts

How do I create a facility system and contacts that can get into all facilities within the system?

Bluesky allows users to not only enter a facility but multiple facilities that belong to a facility "system". Think HCA.

To do this, we utilize the "Vendor" section of "Entries" in Bluesky.

The first step is to enter all of the facilities associated with the system. Click HERE on how to enter facilities.

Next you will need to add the facility "system" in Entries>Vendors in your system. Be sure to filter to the correct region before clicking "New".

While creating the new vendor (or rather facility system) be sure to make it's "type" a "Hospital System" in the general page.

Now that you have created multiple facilities and a facility system (vendor) to link them together let's establish the link.

Make your way to Entries>Facilities and filter to any of the facilities that will belong to this system. You will do the following for each facility in the system:

Click into the general page

Click on the "Hospital System" drop down menu and select the system you just created over in Entries>Vendors. Save.

You have now linked this facility to it's system. Do this for every facility in the system.


You may want to allow your facility system contacts to log into the system and manage jobs, approve time sheets and take evaluations or generally manage the facilities.
In this case we need to add the contacts into the system and give them logins, but not in the facilites. Instead we go back to Entries>Vendors and create them as contacts there.

Go to Entries>Vendors and click into the hospital system you created earlier (don't forget to filter).

Navigate to the "Contacts" page within the hospital system and click "New" at the bottom of the page.

Now enter the contacts information

The "Access to the Region/Facliities" section will already have a list of facilities if you have them linked to this facility system. You can manage that list and change which the contact can or can't see.
Again, this contact will automatically have access to all facilities linked to this system unless you otherwise specify in the "Access to Region/Facilities section. You can click on the X to delete any facilities in the system they should not have access to. You can also add or edit their access to facilities in the system by clicking "New" or clicking on an existing facility.

Where will the contact show in the facility?

When creating the facility system contact (vendor contact) you have the option of selecting a box "Use as Default at Unit Level".

If you select this then the hospital system contact will populate as a facility contact and a unit contact within all listed facilities under "Access to Region/Facilities".

Hospital System Contact Login

If you want your hospital system contacts to log into the system you will go to Entries>Vendors>filter to the correct hospital system and click into it's contacts page.

Once there you will click on the Gray Key icon to the far right of the contacts name under "User ID/Password" (see above image).

This will open a window which allows you to enter their credentials and if they can log in or not (Login Allowed Checkbox at bottom).

Below are what reports a Hospital System contacts can see by default and their default permissions. You can decrease this in permissions but they are not designed to see more than default. Please contact support@blueskymss.com for more information on permissions.
