The Ocean eReferral platform provides some analytics automatically to help provide an understanding of referral patterns, decline rates, wait times, etc. If you would like to set up your referral form to set additional analytics values now is a good time to do so.
This is an an optional part of setting up eReferrals.
The Ocean eReferral platform de-identifies data automatically to provide you with an understanding of referral patterns, decline rates, wait times, etc. You can export this data at anytime from the "Reports" section of the Admin tab in the Ocean Portal. For more details on exporting eReferral analytics, please refer to "Accessing eReferral Analytics".

Additional Available Analytics
In addition, you can map fields in your referral form and Review form to set analytics values for your referral exports. Keep in mind that the semantics behind each is arbitrary and you can "co-opt" them for the purposes of a particular pathway as long as the consumers of the analytical data understand the data values. To do add these analytics values, simply open your form in the eForm Editor and set the item reference to one of the following values.
