Cross Hierarchy Affiliations in Stakeholder Navigator

  • Browser
  • iPad

Users can view their account’s affiliations even when those affiliations are in other organizations. This provides a view of who their accounts have relationships with to allow them to make more intelligent decisions when planning outreach to HCPs.

When a user selects an account in Stakeholder Navigator, the Affiliations tab lists all affiliations, including those between the HCP and providers in other organizations. The user can also open the All Affiliations view to see a visual representation of all affiliations, including those in other networks.
