Link User EMR Accounts to Ocean User Accounts

Note for Ontario Users: In Ontario, Ocean eConsults are currently in a limited release. For more information on eConsult in Ontario as part of the Ontario eServices Program, please review the Overview of eConsults in Ontario article.

Each person who will be sending Ocean eConsults and/or Ocean eReferrals will need to link their EMR and Ocean user accounts.

This is especially important for auditing and tracking purposes.

Each sender must link their EMR user account to their Ocean user account by following the steps below.

This will allow individual users to send Ocean eConsults and/or Ocean eReferrals as well as enable alerts and track activity.

Note: This process is only applicable if your EMR is integrated with Ocean. If your EMR is not integrated with Ocean, you can skip these steps.
