3. Introduction and Document Purpose 3.1. Readership This guide is aimed at project managers, implementation managers, ESR and RA leads responsible for the delivery of HR, RA and ESR who need to understand how to set up and deploy the ESR interface to UIM. It is also aimed at any staff group impacted by the procedural changes following the activation of the interface which may include: • HR • RA • Line Managers • Finance • Recruitment

3.2. Document Purpose The purpose of this document is to provide an understanding of how business processes will operate following the introduction of the ESR interface to UIM. Business processes which may be affected include new starters, leavers, changes to personal details and changes to jobs/assignments. Each process is described in the document along with an associated process flow chart. Organisations deploying the ESR interface to UIM may choose to conduct process reviews and/or workshops in the period of time leading up to implementation. Ideally, to ensure the maximisation of benefits are realised, revisions to current business processes and procedures should be considered in conjunction with the new functionality of the interface. It should be noted however that the amendment of existing business processes and integration of HR/RA is not a mandatory pre-requisite for the activation of the interface.

3.3. Background The ESR interface to UIM is applicable to those organisations that have chosen to deploy the interface as part of their strategy for Integrated Identity Management (see the ‘Developing a Strategy for Integrated Identity Management’). The deployment of the interface requires other components of the Integrated Identity Management initiative to have been completed before implementation commences, these are: • Strategic decision regarding choice of implementation model based on ‘Developing a Strategy for Integrated Identity Management’. • Position Based Access Control (PBAC) including the mapping of ESR positions to NHS CRS Access Control Positions– A minimum of one NHS CRS Access Control Position must be defined and mapped to a corresponding ESR position. • Smartcard enabled access for core ESR users (i.e. all ESR users with the exception of those with access only to NLMS and Employee Self Service). Organisations should also have an awareness of the activities outlined within the HR/RA Process Integration toolkit, although the completion of these activities is not compulsory for the activation of the interface.

3.4. What does the ESR interface to UIM enable? The activation of the ESR interface to UIM completes the deployment of the Integrated Identity Management (IIM) initiative. The interface, utilising mappings between ESR positions and NHS CRS Access Control Positions as defined in UIM, automatically updates an individual’s access rights to NHS Care Records Service (NHS CRS) systems when a change is made to that individual in ESR.

Purpose Provides guidance regarding the implementation of the ESR interface to UIM. Provides an overview of the technical steps required to activate the ESR interface to UIM. Provides instructions regarding the ESR set-up activities that must be completed no later than 2 weeks prior to the activation of the ESR interface to UIM. Provides instructions regarding the ESR set-up activities that must be completed as soon as possible following the activation of the ESR interface to UIM. The standard ESR user manual covering all aspects of using the ESR solution including the new interface and RA functionality. E-learning tools covering the end to end processes between ESR and UIM All user documentation regarding the ESR interface to UIM is available via the ESR website http://www.electronicstaffrecord.nhs.uk/esrprojects/integrated-identity-management/ Provides instructions regarding the UIM set-up activities that must be completed no later than 2 weeks prior to the ESR set-up activities being undertaken. Provides the structure to key decisions that need to be made by NHS organisations to realise the benefits of Integrated Identity Management. Helps NHS organisations move towards the integration of business processes between Human Resources and RAs, or between RAs and other identity capture processes. Describes how to simplify the assignment of access rights to the NHS CRS. All user documentation for UIM is on the NHS CFH NWW web site.

3.6. Key Terminology It is essential that any reader of this document understands the key technical terms and acronyms that are referenced throughout. Please refer to Appendix 1 for key terms relating to the technical solutions. In addition the following concepts are used in this guide: • Linking. A link means creating a connection between types of information stored in ESR with equivalents in UIM. For example, an ESR position will be linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position in UIM when an ESR user selects an NHS CRS Access Control Position from a list of values to link it to the ESR position. • Mapping. A mapping defines the relationship between types of information that will be or are stored in ESR with equivalents that will be or are stored in UIM. This is a precursor activity to ‘linking’. For instance the mapping of ESR positions to NHS CRS Access Control Positions can be done using reports or spreadsheets showing all ESR positions and for each entering the equivalent NHS CRS Access Control Position. Such mappings must be agreed and signed off and used when performing linking.

Identity Checks to set e-GIF flag

HR / RA Agents

Applicants may be hired in ESR via one of the following means: • Direct Hire (without first coming through the recruitment process) • Applicant Hire via HR Data Entry or HR Administration URPs • Using Inter Authority Transfer (IAT) to pull employee data from another ESR VPD At hire RA agents / HR users with RA responsibility must either: 1. Verify that identity checks have been completed by Recruitment or; 2. Carry out full identity checks as per Identity Check standards.

5

System sets e-GIF flag

ESR System

Following the recording of identity checks in ESR (at hire) the system automatically sets the e-GIF flag to ‘E’.

6

Assign employee to ESR position

Recruitment / HR / Manager SS / Admin SS

This may be done using a number of the standard URPs including Recruitment (for applicants); HR and Self Service after applicant hire

ESR Interface to UIM Business Processes v1.doc

Actions / Comments Identity checks may be carried out by recruitment for applicants (e.g. at interview stage) and recorded in ESR If ‘YES’ continue with steps below; if ‘NO’ then the new starter may still need to be added as user on NHS CRS in which case the relevant RA procedure needs to be followed. • All applicants hired via Self Service will be placed on the RA Workbench for action as the subsequent steps must be carried out via an RA agent. • IAT transfer pull all employee data except Smartcard UUID and identity checks, which need to be redone on any new hire regardless of previous checks having been made as per the identity check standards. Using one of the following URPs: • HR Data Entry with RA • HR Administration with RA • RA Workbench This is normally done by a central function however can be devolved if required. It should be noted that in ESR the URPs by default allow access to the entire employee base and must only be issued to those staff that have the RA Agent NHS CRS role assigned. There is no user input required to set the flag. It is possible that a period of time may elapse between hire and identity check completion but this is not recommended to ensure that where NHS CRS access is required that new starters are able to access the systems that they need to do their job. Where the ESR position(s) that the employee is assigned to is / are linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position in UIM inheritance of the access rights defined by the NHS CRS Access Control Position will take place once the new starter is also linked to an NHS CRS SUD user Page 8 of 38

Description

7

Employee appears on RA workbench

ESR System

8

Search and Lookup employee user record on NHS CRS

HR user with RA agent responsibility / RA agent

The new employee will appear on the RA workbench in one of several ‘tabs’ depending on whether they have had their id checks completed or not and whether or not they have been assigned to an ESR position with a linked NHS CRS Access Control Position. The search and Lookup can be initiated from either: • Assignment form or • RA workbench The lookup from the assignment form will only be possible for employees where identity checks have set e-GIF flag to E and are assigned to an ESR position linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position. If the employee is not in a linked position the search/lookup can be performed via the RA workbench.

Actions / Comments record. The workbench is accessed from the following URPs: • HR Data Entry with RA • HR Administration with RA • RA Workbench

Up to 10 possible matches will be returned along with thumbnail pictures. The user may select any record to retrieve further information. Note that both Open and Closed records may be found for any one person. Where Open records exist always select one of these in preference to a Closed record.

Based on an assessment of the possible matches 3 options are available and given in the following sections. • Exact (or partial match) found (open record in NHS CRS) • No record found on NHS CRS • Closed Record found on NHS CRS Steps given for each of the 3 options carry on from Step 8 above.

Description Select the associate person option where an exact match is found. The system then performs the subsequent steps: UUID returned from NHS CRS SUD entry and added to the ESR employee record. The eGIF flag will automatically change to ‘Y’ ESR selects relevant UIM worklist and RA sponsor from information contained within the organisation units above the position in the hierarchy. UIM worklist updated with all relevant details from the employee entry in ESR (see below in personal changes for a list of these fields), including the UUIDs of the employee, the user making the change and of the RA sponsor. Automatic assignment of the NHS CRS Access Control Position that is linked to the ESR position the employee is assigned to thereby granting relevant access rights to NHS CRS systems. ESR takes control of the organisation person record in NHS CRS (i.e. Access rights are locked to ESR and cannot be changed in UIM). Employee checks that they have relevant access rights using NHS CRS Smartcard. This may trigger a Terms and Conditions check – ref RA Terms and Conditions process.

Step title Decision Point – is the inaccuracy in ESR or NHS CRS? Inaccuracy in ESR

Who HR user with RA agent responsibility / RA agent

Description Compare the data in the systems with the information supplied for the new starter

Actions / Comments

HR user with RA agent responsibility / RA agent

Make corrections based on a comparison of the new starter forms or data, information from NHS CRS and the identity information and are usually the result of a keying error.

Inaccuracy in NHS CRS

UIM user (RA agent)

• Make correction in ESR – can be done in the person form immediately. • Once the inaccuracy has been corrected then follow steps as per Scenario 1a above. Carry out the following steps: • Inform UIM user (RA agent) of the person record to be corrected including the required changes. • UIM user makes corrections to NHS CRS. • UIM user informs ESR user that the changes have been made. • ESR user redoes the search from Step 8 and then follows steps for Scenario 1a above.

ESR Interface to UIM Business Processes v1.doc

Where the data in NHS CRS is deemed to be incorrect based on current information from identity checks then it will need to be corrected by an RA agent in UIM.

Actions / Comments

Performed by the system

The link between the two systems allows the correct access to be granted in real time. Therefore the access should be available by the time the user is ready to use their Smartcard.

Note: As access is revoked through ESR automatically you are not required to retain the employees Smartcard however, your organisation may decide that you are going to retain the employees Smartcard until they return. This is a local decision and the Smartcard must be returned to the employee upon their return. Note: Maternity Leave Keeping in Touch (KIT) Days If someone on maternity leave needs access to NHS CRS for a KIT day then either the assignment has to set to back to ‘Active’ for the day and the status changed back afterwards or a temporary Smartcard should be issued for the day.

9. Change of ESR Position: Scenarios 7 – 11 These scenarios apply when employees move jobs (from an employment perspective) within an organisation resulting in a consequent change of access requirements. Assumptions are made that NHS CRS Access Control Positions have been set up in UIM and that both mapping and linking between ESR and NHS CRS Access Control Positions has been completed. There are 5 main variations to this scenario: 1. Move from one ESR position linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position to another ESR 3 position linked to a different NHS CRS Access Control Position. Note: where a move takes place from one ESR position to another, and both of these ESR positions are linked to the same NHS CRS Access Control Position, no changes take place with regards to access rights from the end user perspective. 2. Move from an ESR position not linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position to an ESR position that is 4 3. Move from an ESR position linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position to another ESR position which is not linked. 4. New secondary assignment to ESR position linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position where primary assignment is also linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position. 5. End assignment to ESR position linked to an NHS CRS Access Control Position where employee also has other assignments.

The assumption is made that the employees will have a UUID on their ESR record and be identity checked to e-GIF level 3. 4 In this scenario the employees may or may not have a UUID on their ESR record ESR Interface to UIM Business Processes v1.doc

Actions / Comments An NHS CRS Access Control Position must not be closed unless: • All associated users in UIM have been moved to other positions where they are not controlled by ESR and • Where ESR controls any users associated to the position that they have first been moved to other assigned ESR positions and that the link to the ESR position has been removed.

Using reports / records determine which ESR position(s) are linked to the NHS CRS Access Control Position.

If there are no linked ESR positions then no further action is necessary before the NHS CRS Access Control Position is closed.

Assess access control requirements for the position(s) to determine if the employees assignments need to be changed to different ESR position carrying different linked NHS CRS Access Control Positions

Will depend on the reason why the NHS CRS Access Control Position is being closed. Some scenarios follow: 1. If a new NHS CRS Access Control Position has been created and this applies to all employees then you will simply need to change the linked position 2. If the NHS CRS Access

Actions / Comments Control Position is redundant and the equivalent position in ESR no longer carries access rights then the link to the position in ESR will need to be removed. 3. If some of the employees as result of new / changed systems or job roles now need different access rights they may need to be moved to other positions. The interface will automatically remove association for assigned employees to the old NHS CRS Access Control Position and add an association to the new one.

When the link is removed the interface will remove the association (for all employees assigned to the ESR position) to the NHS CRS Access Control Position and relinquish control if they are not linked to any other NHS CRS Access Control Positions via other ESR assignments. As they are moved the interface will remove their association to the NHS CRS Access Control Position and UIM will regain control of the record if they are not linked to any other NHS CRS Access Control Positions via other assignments. If any users are still associated with the NHS CRS Access Control Position when you close it their access is immediately revoked. If these users were ‘controlled’ by ESR via a linked position then the systems will now be out of sync. Hence it is essential to follow Steps 1 -8 first before closing the NHS CRS Access Control Position. NHS CRS Access Control Positions should then be downloaded to ESR to refresh the list available for linking to ESR positions (i.e. to ensure the closed NHS CRS Access Control Positions is removed from the ESR List Of Values).

Appendix 1 – Key terminology The following terms are relevant to this document and have been extracted from the full Glossary of terms available via http://www.electronicstaffrecord.nhs.uk/esr-projects/integrated-identitymanagement/ • Access Control Position. An NHS CRS Access Control Position is defined in UIM and contains a set of access rights which have been approved and granted through the RA process. NHS CRS users can be associated to NHS CRS Access Control Positions directly in UIM or via the ESR interface. • Assignment. The assignment in ESR provides the link between employee and position. Each employee will have at least one assignment but may have more if they do more than one job. The assignment holds contractual data such as the grade, hours worked etc • e-GIF. Policies and standards to enable information to flow seamlessly across the public sector and provide citizens and businesses with better access to public services. All users of NHS CRS must be identity checked to e-GIF level 3. • ESR – Electronic Staff Record. The Electronic Staff Record (ESR) is the integrated Oracle Human Resource Management System (HRMS) (including Payroll) in use by the vast majority of organisations within the NHS; hosted and maintained by McKesson plc. • ESR Position. A position identifies the post/job that exists within each organisational unit as defined in the workstructures in ESR. Positions can be defined with certain default information such as grade and staff group which are inherited as defaults when an employee is attached to a position via their assignment. It will be possible to link positions in ESR to equivalent positions in UIM to be used for access control. • Integrated Identity Management – The development of closer integration between the currently separate processes involved in capturing and managing staff identity, and controlling access to the NHS Care Records Service (NHS CRS). • NHS CRS – NHS Care Records Service. The NHS Care Records Service will help NHS organisations in England to store patient health care records on computers that will link information together quickly and easily. An NHS CRS Smartcard will give a user access to the NHS CRS and other National Programme for IT applications such as Choose and Book and the Electronic Prescription Service. • PBAC – Position Based Access Control. The PBAC methodology groups access control requirements by job allowing for any number of employees to share generic access rights based on what they do rather than who they are. • RA Agent. Works under the direction of the RA Manager to administer the RA function. They are responsible for performing registration and maintenance of Sponsors and health care professionals/workers in the organisation(s) that the RA Agent holds this profile for. They also ensure that National and local RA processes are followed. • RA Sponsor. Sponsors approve access and the issue of NHS CRS Smartcards and are usually the line manager of users. In UIM Sponsors will manage approvals via worklists. • SUD – Spine User Directory. The Spine User Directory is the repository which stores users’ profiles and registration information both current and historic includes roles and organisations that an individual works for. • UIM – User Identity Manager. The new software which will provide the electronic management of access control which is replacing the current paper based registration process. • UUID – Unique User Identifier. The User’s Unique ID Number is used by all NPfIT applications to uniquely identify the user to the application. The UUID is the number displayed on the NHS CRS Smartcard. Occasionally called the UID (Unique ID Number). ESR will also hold the NHS CRS UUID against employee records so that it can validate that the employee has an active authenticated entry on NHS CRS. • Worklist. Worklists group actions in UIM, users login to their worklists to manage actions and approvals. ESR will automatically access and update worklists for many types of change initiated in ESR such as request for a new user, change access requirements based on positions and changes to personal details. • Workstructures. Workstructures is the area of ESR that allows the definition and management of the organisation structure and hierarchy within an NHS Organisation. Workstructures are hierarchical and consist of organisational units, departments, locations and positions. A specific URP manages workstructures.
