PS Suite Ocean Attachment Exporter 2.07 Release Notes

This version of the Ocean Attachment Exporter PS Suite custom form contains the following improvements:

  • This version includes support for the new, enhanced virus-scanning capabilities on the Ocean server.
  • Multimedia files attached to the PS Suite chart notes are now uploaded to Ocean as separate files, instead of being concatenated into a single PDF. This change allows users to include non-PDF image attachments from the chart, such as PNGs and JPGs, which are occasionally used by PS Suite instead of PDFs. The change also improves the import workflow for specialist sites that receive these attachments via an eReferral.

PS Suite Ocean Toolbar 6.00 (Standard) and Ocean Toolbar (Minimized) Release Notes

This version of the Ocean Toolbar for PS Suite contains the following changes:

  • The toolbar has a new link, "View in Ocean", which opens the patient's Ocean Dashboard in the web browser. The Ocean patient dashboard is a convenient location interacting with a patient's eReferrals, forms, and other Ocean features.

  • The toolbar has a new "Outstanding" count item on the right side, highlighting the number of live Ocean eReferrals/eConsults for the current patient. Clicking on this count will open the Ocean Dashboard, where these items are accessible.
    • This quick link to the patient's eReferrals/eConsults will obviate the need for users to scroll through and locate "Ocean eReferral" custom forms in the chart for each individual eReferral/eConsult.
  • Some items on the toolbar have been re-organized to make room for the :

    • The Add Form and Add Favourite buttons have been combined into a single button. Clicking this button allows users to search for forms or pick from a list of pre-defined favourites.

    • The patient's status on the tablet no longer shows on the root toolbar.

    • To view the patient's status and the patient's eForm queue, as before, users can click on the toolbar's Ocean logo into the toolbar to view it in the Ocean custom form popup.

  • The toolbar has substantial network traffic optimizations that should lead to better response times, particularly at clinics with traffic-shaping routers, high Internet latency, or slow upload/download speeds.

The minimized Ocean toolbar provides the important background functionality needed by Cloud Connect (such as the processing of Ocean Temporary Notes into EMR field updates) without much appearance (two paralleled grey lines). This toolbar is a good option for sites with limited space in their charts and who prefer to access Ocean functionality using their own toolbar's shortcuts to the Ocean Custom Form.


PS Suite Ocean eReferral Form 1.73 Release Notes

This version of the Ocean eReferral PS Suite custom form includes the following changes:

  • Two new buttons have been added:
    • Add PSS Pending Test/Consult - This button will add a pending test to the PSS chart to assist in tracking the referral. As before, sites may be configured to add pending tests automatically. However, this button can be used to add the pending test manually in the event that it is missing.
    • Add PSS Internal Message - This button will send the follow-up message ("yellow sticky") to the PSS chart to assist with the follow-up of the referral. As before, most sites are configured to add these PSS messages automatically for the eReferral. However, this button can be used to send the message manually in the event that it is missing.
  • The final summary note, created after the eReferral is finished, has been updated to include more information when the eReferral was not finished in the usual manner (such as when it was declined or canceled).
  • An additional safety check has been included to ensure the form cannot be inserted into the wrong patient chart.

This version of the Ocean Toolbar for PS Suite contains the following changes:

This message was a nuisance since it was causing significant confusion for users and was furthermore deemed to have no meaningful safety benefit.

PS Suite Ocean Custom Form 4.07 Release Notes

Version 4.07 of the PS Suite Ocean custom form contains the following improvements:

  • Appointment times are now included when the patient is uploaded to the portal. (In older versions of the form, when used by newer versions of PSS, the time would be excluded, resulting in midnight displaying as the appointment time.)
  • When sending a referral or emailing a secure message, this form gives the new attachment exporter form sufficient time to prompt for the file name before opening the browser window. (Previously the form would sometimes open the browser window immediately, prior to users specifying a file name, resulting in the attachment missing from the send dialog until the user returned to the EMR to complete this prompt.)
  • Manual demographic field updates for hospital EHR sites are now listed in an order that more closely mirrors the layout of the PSS Patients window, in an effort to simplify manual entry.
  • When the custom form is used to upload a patient, the member status is now uploaded as a textual description (e.g. "FHO Enrolled" instead of a number), consistent with CloudConnect.
  • When uploading patients to Ocean using the custom form, some additional fields are now included in the upload to facilitate use of the Patients tab in the Ocean Portal:
    • The primary provider name is uploaded, which enables the Provider dropdown filter in the Find Patient area in the Patients tab.
    • Provider names are included with the patient's appointments, which results in the patient's provider name displaying in the day sheet in the Ocean Portal
    • The indexed surname is included, which allows users to quickly find patients via surname in the Find Patient area in the Patients tab.

  • A workaround has been added to fix a bug in newer versions of PS Suite that prevented custom form values from saving successfully (including Ocean eReferral custom form values)
  • The form will now present an error message when it is inserted directly into the chart (since it should only be presented as a popup dialog using a toolbar or the View Form menu item in PS Suite)
  • When clicking Import, a confirmation prompt is now presented to the user to ensure the correct chart is open
