TM3 web allows you to manage patient clinical cases from your browser.


In some arrangements there may be multiple practitioners working on a patients clinical case.


To reduce any cross over of modifications to a record TM3 Clinical Notes has a co-current function that prevents other users from accessing and modifying a case whilst it is already being worked on.


An example situation is as follows.


Practitioner John Doe is the treating practitioner on a case from Jane Madison.

Practitioner John Doe is away on leave.

Practitioner Alfred Cork works on Jane Madison case  while John Doe was away.

Practitioner John Doe has an appointment with Jane Madison and attempts to open up her case.

He is notified that the user Practitioner Alfred Cork is accessing the record and is prevented from going any further.


In this example the Practitioner Alfred Cork has left a browser tab open on his system with Jane Madison case open in modification mode.

Practitioner John Doe will need to contact Practitioner Alfred Cork and request he close the tab he has open for Jane Madisons case.

Once Practitioner Alfred Corks browser tab connection to the case is closed Practitioner John Doe can then open the case correctly and perform modifications.



In the above situations there were two practitioners attempting to access the same record.


There can be situations where the practitioner may open the same record multiple times on their system, in a multi browser tab environment or multiple times on different systems.

In this situation there is no co-current restrictions. The restrictions are based on different users, if the same user is accessing the access is granted.

For example.

Practitioner John Doe is the treating practitioner on a case from Jane Madison.

Practitioner John Doe is logged into TM3 on one system and has the case open.

Practitioner John Doe is logged into TM3 on another system at same time and has the case open.

The last tab left open on either system will be the tab that performs the final save to the case.
