The Ocean Server release scheduled for January 8, 2018 at 9:30 PM EST includes the following:


  • Appointment date/time can now be automatically set from Accuro via a CDS link or button.
  • Added a number of referral analytics CSV export options (e.g. whether to include master, deleted and test referrals, and whether to base the search on creation date or modified date).
  • Added additional protection against corrupt PDF file attachments (which can result from lab  data exports from PSS).
  • You can now decline an appointment even after it's been booked.
  • Referrals declined from Pending Booking tab will now show up in declined tab.
  • Sent referrals will now be correctly excluded from the "All Received" tab for sites that send and receive referrals.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an occasional load error editing an existing referral.
  • Fixed a bug that caused referral count under the Processed folders to change if a referral within the tab is opened.
  • Fixed a race-condition bug that could cause an occasional error sending a referral.
  • Fixed a bug that meant that popup blockers in browsers could interfere with online booking links for listings in the Directory.
  • Confirmed checkbox will now be cleared along with appointment info when a referral is forwarded from assessment centre to surgeon.
  • Regional Authority agreement dialog will implicitly request consent to share the user's email address with the regional authority.

Patient Engagement:

  • Fixed a bug that caused OSCAR measurements to be missed in some situations.
  • Ocean Online DoB validation will now present a month dropdown (in English or French, depending on browser settings) instead of a numeric month to make it simpler for patients.

  • New sites will default to 4 digit Ocean reference numbers now.
  • Fix error that could occur if "New Patient" dialog closed with slow/failed network call.
