Follow the steps below to enable real-time health card validation (HCV) with the Ontario Ministry of Health database when a patient swipes their health card on the kiosk.

Requirements to activate HCV:
  • Go Secure Username
  • Go Secure Password

(Depending on your EMR, "Master Billing Number" may be displayed as the Group or Solo Billing Number.)
  1. Enter your HCV credentials into the Ocean Portal.

    • Login to the Ocean Portal. Click the "Menu" button in the top left corner and select "Tablets & Kiosks".
    • Click the "Edit" button on your Kiosk tablet group setting and navigate to the HCV tab.
    • Enter your clinic's Go Secure Username, Go Secure Password, and Master Billing Number into the appropriate fields.
    • Save your changes.
  • Note: If you are using PS Suite, you can find this information in the "MC EDT and HCV" section of "Preferences" (which you can access by selecting "Preferences" from the "Settings" menu on the dashboard).
  1. Test your HCV credentials on your kiosk tablet.

    • Fully reboot your kiosk tablet and relaunch the Ocean Tablet App
    • Click on the Ocean logo (or cog) at the bottom left corner.
