Ocean Server Upgrade October 26th, 2023 Release Notes

The Ocean Server upgrade scheduled for October 26th, 2023 at 9:30 PM EST contains the following improvements and fixes.

Provider Network


  • Additional timeframe options 2-3 years; 3-4 years; 4-5 years; 5+ years have been added to the estimated wait times for referrals. Note that existing referrals set to 2+ years will be grandfathered in but it will no longer be a selectable option going forward.
  • The Regional Authority Approvals table has been updated and a Health Region can now be specified for British Columbia.
  • The RA Export now contains additional fields for Health Region (if applicable), Listing Type, Catchment Area, eReferral and eConsult enablement.
  • A dedicated Advanced Filter button has been added in the Healthmap.
  • Updated the copy in the sign-in screen Provincial Sign In section to indicate ONE ID is for Ontario users.
  • Updated the message generated for when a Referral Form Summary is edited from "The referral note was edited" to "The referral form summary was edited" which is the updated terminology.
  • Referrals for inactive sites will now also be automatically purged.

Fixed Bugs:

  • Fixed a bug where the appointment date could not be manually cleared when saving a referral which affected both the patient notification email for updated referral appointments and the referral status.
  • Fixed a bug regarding inconsistent date format that was coming through the payloads.
  • Fixed a bug to ensure delegates can only initiate referrals for Providers on the site that the Provider belongs to.

Patient Engagement

Fixed Bugs:

  • Resolved a bug where the Tablet Introduction and Completion message language did not distinguish between different regions of a locale.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the Online Booking Post Booking Form title to change to Booking Form.
  • Resolved a bug that caused confusing time discrepancies to appear in secure messages when accessed in a different time zone.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented patients with appointments booked in a Room instead of with a Provider in Med Access from confirming their appointments.
  • Fixed a bug in OSCAR Pro's online booking that confused single-letter slot suggestions that differ only in uppercase or lowercase value.
