Forms for patients who are employed by the RCMP
Eforms contributed by Jel Coward
These eforms are contributed by Jel Coward. Please feel free to download and modify them. They are best edited in a text editor, eg Notepad rather than a word processor or HTML editor such as Frontpage or Dreamweaver.
A Standard Rich Text Letter
This eForm provides a method to produce multipage letters with markup attributes including bold, font size, underline, italic and database lookups that allow for pasting of attending doctor, referral doctor and patient information. All the button images (.png), the javascript (.js) the help file (editor_help.html) and the templates (blank.html, MissedAppointment.html, certificate.html, narcotic.html, custom.html and so on) need to get uploaded into your images folder. The main editor file (Editor-For-XX.html) needs to be uploaded as a form. This version is tuned for Firefox and works with FF versions 2 to 17 inclusive. IE Chrome and Opera browsers have been tested and will open and write letters, but may not have all the bells and whistles supported. For all newer browsers please use the newer version built into OSCAR 12.1.1 This version has 26 formatting functions and support to back port spelling for IE. Cut and paste are supported through keyboard shortcuts as they are variably implemented across browsers.

Aviation Medical eForms
Created by Chris Sedegreen: For any OSCAR user who is also a Transport Canada Civil Aviation Medical Examiner (CAMEs), I have created eForm versions of the Medical Exam Report Form: see attached. Presumably to offload their costs onto us, Transport Canada (TC) seems to have stopped sending the blank paper forms. As CAMEs know, these are printed on legal size paper; but I found that TC will accept a form that is shrunk to letter size. I've taken the PDF (see attached) and Photoshopped it without proportion constraints, so that it fits quite nicely onto a letter size page. In designing the eForm and to save time, I've also put in 'default' answers - e.g. the 'Normal' boxes are all pre-checked: since the majority of pilots that I see seem to be in excellent health. These can be un-checked if necessary where there is an abnormality. At the present time this is a two pager, but I intend to convert it to a 1 pager in the near future. Chris.
Generic Short Term Disability eForm
Attached is the new 'Generic' Short Term Disability form and images, with acknowledgement to Pat Morphy from NERD for his assistance on creating a 2 pager. Note that this is supposed to be the form that all or most insurers have agreed to use. Having completed it I'm not sure how useful it will really be in terms of reducing MD workload, but try it and see. Watch out for more to follow. Chris.
Industry Generic Long Term Disability eForm
From Chris Sedegren - Attached is the Insurance Industry generic Long Term Disability eForm html and pngs. Also attached is a sample form (in PDF) once again completed on my dear old friend and patient, Bilbo Baggins, so that you can get an idea as to what the completed form looks like. This time I was able to use 14 point font, which makes it much easier to read. The areas that the patient is required to complete are highlighted in yellow. Please feel free to adapt and modify as you see fit. Chris.

RBC Insurance Form
Provided February 2014 by Chris Sedergreen - Attached herewith a an eForm version of the Royal Bank of Canada Insurance Attending Physician Supplementary Statement - a two pager. For those who may wish to modify the 'Degree' - e.g. a specialist or those with a non-north American degree, this can be done fairly easily as follows: After uploading the two images and html file to the appropriate places, go to the eForm list and click the Edit button (towards the right of the screen). This brings up the html. Scroll down to near the bottom, where the line begins with the words input name 'Degrees' , then scroll across that line to the end and find " value="MD" Substitute or add any letters you wish, for example "value="FRCS(C)" if you are a surgeon. In the same way you can alter any of the pre-formatted statements in the response boxes of the various questions, such as my "What does this question mean?" about 3/4 of the way down. Chris.

New versions will now work for most browsers up to IE11 and Firefox 31. repackaged the Letter Eform with a renamed editControl.js as to not require any Eform Image manipulation in order to install.
Doctors Note/Sick note/Absence note 2015
Updated December 12th 2015 - Missed appointment note added. Updated December 11th 2015 - Link to ticklers and other minor changes with window optimization (size of display). Updated December 9th 2015 - added a link to billing and messaging making it easier to bill for notes. Added boiler plate for request for CPAP machine authorization. OnBodyLoad.js is needed for this to work. ------ Updated December 5th 2015 - From JohnY - So I’ve tweaked it a bit more. I also like the use of Span over input, for text that should not be altered - like titles, etc. And I used the focus function, based on how you used it in the “custom signature section”. Try it out. This will NOT zip import properly, as I’ve use /n in the html to force line feeds, in order to create a nicer format. I can see lots of applications for this form - those pesky RT request for CPAP authorizations, e.g. See what you think. The “magic” is in the CurrentUserSignature script. As stated earlier, unzip the file outside of Oscar and load up just the HTML. If anyone knows how to create a Current_User tag that puts the full first name first, and last name second, that would be awesome.

You can pick the start and end dates of the work absence and populate corresponding text in the body of the note. I got stuck for a while because OSCAR just doesn't seem to like apostrophes, even if you use &#39;. It seemed to jam up the onClick event. I tried using &rsquo; , but that wouldn't save properly. So the easiest workaround was to just formulate clumsy sentences without apostrophes.

More and more employers also seem to be automatically requesting written return to work notes now. The latest shenanigan is that even day care operators have started insisting that parents bring return-to-daycare notes before formerly sick kids, or kids with any type of skin rash, are allowed back to day care! So I've attached my attempt to address this problem by way of a Doctors Note eForm with a phrase menu selection option (as html and zip). You could adapt this to your specific needs. Automating text phrases right in the eForm saves you from having to fiddle with AutoHotKey or Text Expander on every one of your workstations, and non-technical users tend to find AutoHotKey quite intimidating. The reason for the alternative signatures provision is to accommodate the office work flow where the MOA generates the letter, for the MD to sign, so the "current_user" or "provider_name" database pulls might not be for the correct doctor. You would have to edit the html to reflect names and license numbers of doctors at your office. Hope that's helpful Gunther
Generic Allied Health Referral eForm
From JohnY - I created a "generic" allied health referral eForm, based on the original eForm from JelC and the Pemberton Clinic many, many years ago! Then I realized I wanted to include specific people and places based on referral patterns. This eForm is all HTML, and allows you to customize with as many/few specific agents you choose. There are additional pop-up boxes to remind you what scope of practice may be included. There is no background, and it should not be shared via zip due to "escape characters". JohnY
Record Request - 2017
Updated October 23rd - to include a few missing FHA sites (Abbotsford, Hope), and tagged on a PDF viewer made possible by Darius Opensource. I found it does not work if both online (inside Oscar) and off-line (outside Oscar) references are made in the eForm html. So I’ve set up the zip to work inside Oscar. Developers can uncomment the relevant line and use it elsewhere if they wish. --- Updated September 17th - Here’s the updated general record request. With the VCH list linked. It should be zipped in, or add the bmp file to the image library. I did change the location js file name - adding revision date. - Updated September 14th - to add most of the FHA and the major VCH sites in the drop down list. - Updated Sept 13th - added a link to ALL the FHA medical records sites! Hopefully their fax #’s are up to date. - JohnY - Update Sept 5th - Once the eForm is saved, on reload it goes back to default setting for the Health Record request - which means the usual stuff for former GP is added back. It’s easy enough to over-ride by just clicking on the source again, but that’s a hassle, and another click! So, in order to save the MOA that extra click, here’s version 5. - Update September 4th - This eForm requires even less customization - mainly if you wish to have multiple doctors names available. Default name is the current user - in proper order, full name! The city and Province are on the same line. Minor cosmetic tweaks for alignment. The clinic name in the Footer autopopulates, and if you want to shrink or expand the field to align with the comma, you may do so!! If you want to set it to custom width, you may do that too - but that involves customizing. - Created By John Yap - Here is a non-background record request eForm - initially created simply to get records sent from patient’s previous GP. It is zip-importable, and should be loaded up initially as a zip, as there is a location js file that goes into the image file. BUT - you’ll have to customize it as per the html instructions. Because of formatting limits, the clinic name, address, phone, physician’s names, and a few other bits, need to be hard coded. If you cannot figure out how to do this, ask your OSP. It’s not that difficult. Updated Jun2017 - updated zip file and js for locations. JY.
Doctors Note 2017
The original version of this eForm was, I believe, from GuntherK, and was a huge improvement over the previous “sick note” eForm I was using. It is a great platform for using boiler plate - those standard letters for orthotics, CPAP authorization, RTW, etc, etc. The novice “programmer” can add more menu items by using the pattern set out in the js file stored in the image library (Doctors_Note_V8.js). If you’re not sure how to do so, ask your OSP. The original may have had “hard coding” for a specific clinic. I believe the current (attached) one is more “generic” and will reflect whoever is the user at the time. Which means - if your MOA is creating the note, it will be her/his name on the form! The latest upgrade has the fontSizechanger added - because my presbyopia challenges me every day! If there is other boilerplate you would like added, I’d be pleased to help out. If you already have an older version of the Doctor’s Note - you can keep that by renaming it. And you can add this one as a new eForm - with a different name, of course. Then decide which you prefer.
