This documentation discusses the Clinician Portal. It goes over how you can manage study access requests from AdvaPACS Clinician Portal users.
The documentation for the AdvaPACS Clinician Portal application itself, on the other hand, can be found at docs.clinician.advapacs.com, where it discusses its interface and functionality.
The Clinician Portal and its features are only accessible if the role assigned to you have permission to use it. To follow along this documentation and test its features you need the following role permissions enabled in your account:

The Clinician Portal allows you to provide Clinician Portal users controlled access to your patients' imaging and reports.
It lets you share studies with clinicians while maintaining control over your data. You can manage who can access your data, which studies to share, and what they can do with the studies they have access to.
