Having a variety of user roles allows the system to be precise in defining the relationships between different entities. For example, if a couple shares an account, these two Residents do not have to share the same Caregivers. Authorized Distributors will have control over or access to all the Systems that they have supplied, and can assign them to logical [[Groups}Groups]]. Although it is possible to assign multiple roles to a single user, this is rare. Typically a user should have only one role assigned.
