Ocean Server Upgrade March 21st, 2024 Release Notes

The Ocean Server upgrade scheduled for March 21st, 2024 at 9:30 PM EST contains the following improvements and fixes.

Provider Network


  • Added Priority and Protocol filters in the eReferrals & eConsult dashboard Pending Booking folder.
  • Added a new Forwards filter in the eReferrals & eConsults dashboard Pending Booking folder for Central Intakes.
  • Added request submitter/delegate Practitioner resource to the FHIR payload.
  • Added a configuration option to allow the use of the patient's email address in the FHIR payload for patient email notifications instead of the patient's Ocean email address.

Fixed Bugs:

  • Fixed an issue in the ReferralAnalytic export where the values of the integrationName and externalServiceId column were not displaying properly after a referral was forwarded.
  • Minor Update to Ocean's v0.11.1 DocumentReference Resource to remove prefixes making the identifier simply be a UUID.
  • Fixed bug with referral counts not updating when a portal filter is applied.

Patient Engagement

Fixed Bugs:

  • Fixed bug causing Ocean’s FHIR Patient Engagement module to create redundant demographic notes for smoking status.
  • Changed how Ocean updates a site’s appointment types during each sync to mitigate issues where there are mismatches between the previous and current set.



  • Allow Regional Authority sites to manage Patient Engagement licence coverage separately from approving Directory Listings for the Provider Network.
  • Sites with only test listings will now appear in the Regional Authority management pages.

Fixed Bugs:

  • Accessibility improvement: EForm captions are no longer treated as headings by screenreaders.
