Learn how to import notes from eReferral requisition forms from the eRequests tab of the Ocean Portal into the patient's chart in your EMR.
- If you are an PS Suite or OSCAR user, and you have a patient chart with matching demographic data, you should have a quick "Import" link on the Ocean toolbar in your EMR, which will allow you to import a patient's eReferral using the reference number provided.
- The patient demographic fields will automatically update in the patient's chart when you import their eReferral data.
- If you are using Accuro and are accepting eReferrals 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 eReferral, the referral 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 non-integrated EMR, you can download the eRequest submission and upload it into your EMR as a PDF.
