Radekal Administration Overview

The Admin module helps you set up your Radekal Clinical system to match the requirements of your practice: 

  • Describe your clinic in detail
  • Add and customize each user from providers to front desk personnel
  • Connect to Practice Management System (PMS), labs, and pharmacies
  • Set up standard procedures 

Once your clinic is up and running on Radekal, Admin can help you manage:

  • Security
  • Patient records
  • Reports
  • User information
  • Labs

After logging in to the Admin module, you will see the page below – the Radekal Administrator Home Page.  This page contains three headers, Tasks, Communications and Patient Management, covered in turn in separate section of the Knowledge Base. In this section, we will cover the Tasks portion of the page. Messages is covered in the RadekalDocpad reference guide. 


The Tasks section includes the features the Administrator can change about the Radekal applications and the preferences for individual users.
