OSCAR: Why does my patient have no Ocean reference number on their Encounter Screen?

In order to generate and obtain the Ocean patient reference number needed for a patient to complete their forms on a tablet, the patient must be first uploaded into Ocean. Patients are uploaded into Ocean from OSCAR by loading the Ocean eForm for that patient.

You can load the Ocean eForm for a patient in OSCAR from the Appointment Schedule or the Encounter screen.

Appointment Schedule Encounter Screen
  • Click on the Ocean shortcut located on a patient's appointment on the OSCAR Schedule.
  • This will open up the Ocean eForm in a new tab or window, uploading the patient into Ocean and generating a patient reference number for the patient.
