OSCAR: CONNECTING CARE, CREATING COMMUNITY

Banner for homepage

 

OSCAR is a suite of electronic health applications including:

  • OSCAR: An Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system, designed by doctors, used by doctors and other front-line health care professionals.
  • MyOSCAR: A patient controlled personal health record (PHR)
  • MyDrugRef: A "social-network" to facilitate drug information exchange between professionals. MyDrugRef is fully integrated with the OSCAR EMR prescription module.
  • OSCAR Resource: A compilation of free clinical academic information resources which can be accessed through the EMR at the point of care.
  • OSCAR Kiosk: A self-check-in utility for patients, for use in medical offices.
  • CAISI  (Client Access to Integrated Services and Information): An integrator to facilitate the seamless flow of medical information in multi-site care.

OSCAR is a free open source software project:

 

OSCAR is a national community of developers and technical support providers:

 

OSCAR is a community of clinical EMR users from across Canada and around the world:

  • We are OCUS, the OSCAR Canada Users Society. We are the people who use OSCAR to do our work, caring for patients. Welcome to our website, collaboratively maintained by volunteer members.

OSCAR is a collaborative partnership:

  • In the medical community we value our strong traditions of collegial sharing of clinical knowledge and expertise. As medical practitioners it seems natural to us to extend this collaborative approach to the IT tools we use to care for our patients. This is why we find the open source approach to Electronic Medical Records development and implementation to be such a good fit.
  • And that's why we at the OSCAR Canada Users Society work together with the developers and support community, to make sure that OSCAR is, and always will remain, simply the finest EMR software no money can buy!
