  • configuring a medical device with an access level hierarchy that enables the plurality of individuals to have different access level rights to set or modify parameters of the medical device, the access level hierarchy including at least a first, a second, and a third access level, wherein first access level rights enable a first individual having first access level rights to set, modify or lock prescriptive parameters and non-prescriptive parameters of the medical device, wherein second access level rights enable a second individual having second access level rights to set, modify or lock non-prescriptive parameters of the medical device that have not been locked by the first individual, wherein the second access level rights preclude the second individual from setting, modifying or locking prescriptive parameters of the medical device, wherein third access level rights enable a third individual having third access level rights to set, modify or lock non-prescriptive parameters of the medical device that have not been locked by the first or second individual, and wherein the third access level rights preclude the third individual from setting, modifying or locking prescriptive parameters of the medical device.
