Who Is My Practice Account Administrator?
A practice account administrator is anybody in your organization with a RateFast user account that has the role of “Admin”.
This could be your staff or your office manager or a doctor. It depends on how your clinic, hospital, or organization has arranged security.
The best way to find an admin: ask somebody who has a RateFast account to login to RateFast, and then look at their name in the upper right corner. If it says “Admin” then they are an admin, and they can reset your password.
If not, then they can do the following to locate an admin:
- Click their name in the upper right corner.
- Click “Practice Settings”.
- Click the “Users” tab.
- Scroll through the users until you see somebody with a “Role” that is set to “Admin”.
