Update Your Referrals Configuration

Once you have claimed a Directory Listing claimed to your site, and set up the Directory Listing details, the next step is to configure the site-level features associated with receiving referrals.

  1. Select that your site is Receiving Referrals

    • Select the Settings button in the top right hand corner of the page.
    • Note: The Settings button will only be accessible by Admin users at the site.
    • Under the "Welcome to Ocean eReferrals!" section, ensure that the appropriate selection is made for how your site is using eReferrals (Receiving Referrals or Sending and Receiving Referrals).
  2. Configure Referrals

      • Set your default email for notifications regarding incoming referrals. Further details on email notifications for receivers can be found here.
      • Select whether you would like Ocean to automatically send patients email notifications regarding status updates for their referrals sent to your site. The list of email notifications patients will receive can be found here.
      • If your Ocean site is integrated with an EMR, select whether you want Ocean to automatically create patient charts at the time of accepting referrals for new patients referred to your site.
      • Choose which file format you would like Ocean to download your referral records and notes as. More details can be found here.
      • Select if you would like Ocean to automatically mark booked referrals as completed, a specified number of days after the appointment date. Review this support article for more information.
      • If your site is responding to eReferrals as eConsults, ensure the display of eConsult folders is set correctly.
      • Set the Time System, Time Interval, and Time Range for your booking time dropdown, to allow for ease of use when booking referrals. More information regarding these settings can be reviewed in the following support article.
