SOP: Onboarding new dCDR Device


SanteDB's dCDR software support self-service registration of dCDR instances provided the user self-enrolling the device has proper permissions (Create Device). The self-service procedure will vary depending on:
  • The dCDR plugins and customizations performed (i.e. the MEMPI RegApp is different than TImR App self-service enrolment)
  • The strategy for the dCDR instance (online or synchronized)
  • The subscription architecture of the dCDR instances (identifier, catchment, etc.)

Use Procedure When

  • A new device is being setup with an app that is built on the dCDR technology (Android application, Web Access Gateway, Disconnected Gateway, etc.)
  • The device has not previously been setup or configured on the iCDR interface


Before Beginning

  • Connected to the Internet
  • Ensure the device is protected from threats
    • Ensure the device has the latest operating system installed
    • Ensure the device has its local firewall enabled and configured
    • Ensure the device has antivirus software and anti-malware software installed
  • Ensure device name selected complies with the device naming conventions in the operational architecture documentation developed.
  • Ensure that a most responsible person and/or facility has been documented for the device
  • Install the appropriate dCDR software on the device
  • Ensure the user of the device has received proper instructions on care and use of the device:
    • Reviewed and completed the Privacy Policy
    • Reviewed and completed the Acceptable Use Policy
    • Reviewed and completed the Data Sharing Process Documents
