Med Access: Create Your Ocean Cloud Connect User and Acquire EMR Credentials in Med Access

In this step, you will create a new Med Access user to allow Ocean to write notes to the chart, as well as acquire your EMR Instance ID and Secret to configuration the Cloud Connect integration.

Note: You will need to be an admin user in Med Access to complete this step.


To access the Mobile Tab, the user must have Security Admin Level permissions set to Site (Site Administrator) and sign the Terms of Use located under "Mobile Settings".

  1. Create a new Med Access user, named "Ocean Connect".

    • This Ocean Connect user will serve as a makeshift user that Ocean Cloud Connect will use when saving notes.
    • You can create a new user in the Profile dashboard located in the corner of the screen (you will need administrative privileges in Med Access to access this dialog). Choose "User List", then click "New".
    • Select the Role to be "Admin" and fill the Username as "OCNC". Fill the First Name as "Ocean" and Last Name as "Connect". Click "Save".
  2. Pair the Ocean Connect user to the EMR credentials.

    • Go back to the Profile dashboard and click "Mobile Settings".

    • Under the Extension Application header located on the left-hand side of the page, select Integration Management.
    • Locate the Ocean by CognisantMD entry and click the purple "Configure" button.
    • In the window that appears, click the box labeled "Enable Ocean by CognisantMD."
    • Under the "Select User" dropdown, ensure the newly created Ocean user is selected.
    • Note down the values listed under "EMR Instance ID" and "EMR Secret." These two values will need to be entered into Cloud Connect to authenticate the Ocean site with your Med Access instance.

      It is recommended you (temporarily) copy these to a text file on your computer for ease of use when completing your Cloud Connect integration.
    • Press the "SAVE" button to enable the integration.
