OSCAR: Guide to the Ocean eForm

  • The Ocean eForm for OSCAR will allow you to access Ocean directly from the appointment screen (see screenshots below). This article will describe the various Ocean features that can be accessed from the Ocean eForm. For instructions on how to install the Ocean eForm, please refer to "Download & Install the Ocean eForm & Toolbar".
3-Digit Patient Ref
The 3-digit number to the right of the Ocean logo is the patient's Ocean reference number. When this number is entered into the Ocean Tablet app, it will subsequently pull up any eForms that have been queued for this specific patient (in addition to eForms that are triggered based on Tablet Rules).
Add Form
This will allow you to search for and select any form(s) that exist in the eForm library. Once you've selected your form(s), you can enter the patient ref into your tablet for the patient to complete.
Email Patient
This will allow you to send a secure message or web questionnaire for the patient to receive via email to complete at home. Note that there is a separate fee for online messaging (please refer to our pricing plans). To learn more about how to send emails to patients through Ocean, please refer to "Basic Online Messaging Workflow".
This requires you to have an administrative Ocean account. Once you enter your Ocean credentials, you will be able access your site's admin settings, including your initial Ocean settings configuration, resetting your Ocean credentials, and accessing advanced settings (if needed).
Open Form Queue
This will allow you to open and complete an eForm in a web browser on your own computer. Note that if you do not have an Ocean Online subscription, a per-form completion fee will apply.
Find Health Service
This will allow you to access the Ocean eReferral Network directly, where you can send and/or receive eReferrals, if you are set up as an Ocean eReferrer. For more information about Ocean eReferrals, please visit the Ocean eReferral Network website.
