The importance of categorizing the discipline or department of a service within the clinic is to segment the services to only appear and be used by specific disciplines/departments within the clinic. This would limit everyone to see all services in a clinic. If the owner/office admin chooses to not add a discipline for a service category then all users will be able to view and select all the services offered within the clinic.
