Ocean Server Upgrade February 16th, 2021 Release Notes

The Ocean Server upgrade scheduled for February 16th, 2021 at 9:30 PM EST contains the following features, improvements and fixes. Recently created and/or updated support articles are also listed below. 



New Features

  • Created an Adverse Event Following Immunization (AEFI) analytic report.
    • Modified the Admin view > Reports tab > Referral Export section to include a Health Service Filter that can be used to generate an CSV export of AEFI records.
    • Added a new open API endpoint to enable fetching of form analytics based on the template name.


  • Referral sites administered by the Ontario eServices Program can now create a Patient Self-Referral form (weblink) as part of their licence.
  • Disabled the messaging pane for eReferrals that are submitted by a non-Ocean User (to eliminate ‘broken telephone’ since the sender cannot see the message sent).
  • Ocean will no longer add the (duplicate) "Letter" stamp to the document name in Accuro for sent and received referrals.
  • Included the text “Completed” in the name of downloaded referrals added to Accuro's Documents after the referral is marked as complete, to better differentiate from the original sent referral.
  • Ocean messages sent via Health Report Manager can now accept IDs greater than 20 characters.
  • Added 'Ocean user' fields to core Ocean Open API endpoints in order to enhance capture this data in support of privacy and security audits.

Fixed Bugs

  • Improved error handling when users link their Ocean account to their EMR user on the Healthmap. The user’s default site will no longer need to be set to the site their EMR is integrated with, and Ocean will prompt if the user does not belong to that site.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from successfully removing site favorites in the Healthmap.
  • Fixed a bug that caused eConsult “Needs Review” reminder notification to only be triggered once at the 7-day mark, rather than every 7 days moving forward.
