If you are planning on using Patient Reminders, Ocean is able to mark your patient appointments with an "Ocean Reminder Sent" status, once they've been sent an automated appointment reminder email through Ocean. This feature is separate from Ocean eReferral appointment emails, and requires users to have a patient messaging and reminders licence.
In order to enable this, you will need to edit your appointment status for code e in your OSCAR PRO EMR.
This step is an optional part of setting up the integration between OSCAR PRO EMR and Ocean, for users who have a patient messaging and reminders licence.
Ocean can automatically trigger a custom status in OSCAR PRO to provide a visual indication when a patient reminder has been sent to the patient.
Edit your appointment status setting in OSCAR PRO
- In your OSCAR PRO EMR, access the Administration panel. Expand Schedule Management and click on Appointment Status Setting.
When configuring Patient Reminders, you have the option to configure appointment confirmations. This will allow patients to confirm their appointment via the appointment reminder. If this is enabled, the appointment status will automatically change to code h in your OSCAR PRO EMR.
