Once your eRequest link is active, you can start collecting submissions from patients, which you can manage from within the eRequests tab of the Ocean Portal.
View your eRequest submissions
Import your eRequest submissions into your EMR.
- If you are an PS Suite or OSCAR user, if you have a patient chart with matching demographic data, you should have a quick link on the Ocean custom form in your EMR, which will allow you to import a patient's information using the reference number provided. If your eForms are also configured to collect patient demographic fields, these fields should get automatically updated in the patient's chart when you import their eRequest submission.
- If you are using Accuro and are accepting eRequests from new patients (that don't have a record in your Accuro EMR yet), you will want to ensure that your site is set up to allow Ocean to create patients in your EMR. You can enable this by going into the Admin tab of your Ocean Portal, entering the "Site Features" section, checking off the "Allow accepted eRequests/eReferrals to create patients in your EMR" checkbox, and then saving your changes.
- Then, when you accept a new eRequest, the request note should either automatically be uploaded into the patient (with matching health number)'s chart in Accuro, or a new record in Accuro for that patient will be created, and the note uploaded into that newly-created chart.
If you use a non-integrated EMR, you can download the eRequest submission and upload it into your EMR as a PDF.
