OSCAR: Guide to the Ocean Toolbar

The Ocean toolbar for OSCAR will allow you to use Ocean directly from a patient's Encounter screen (see screenshot below). This article will describe the various Ocean features that can be accessed from the Ocean toolbar. For instructions on how to install the Ocean toolbar, please refer to "Download & Install the Ocean eForm & Toolbar".

3-Digit Patient Ref
The 3-digit number to the right of the Ocean logo is the patient's Ocean reference number. When this number is entered into the Ocean Tablet app, it will subsequently pull up any eForms that have been queued for this specific patient (in addition to eForms that are triggered based on Tablet Rules).
Add Form
This will allow you to search for and select any form(s) that exist in the eForm library. Once you've selected your form(s), you can enter the patient ref into your tablet for the patient to complete.
Open
This will allow you to open and complete an eForm in a web browser on your own computer. Note that if you do not have an Ocean Online subscription, a per-form completion fee will apply.
Email
This will allow you to send a secure message or web questionnaire for the patient to receive via email to complete at home. Note that there is a separate fee for online messaging (please refer to our pricing plans). To learn how to send emails to patient through Ocean, please refer to "Basic Online Messaging Workflow".
Import
This will allow you to import any clinical notes and/or eReferrals generated by a patient completing form(s) on a tablet as a new patient. To learn how to do these imports, please refer to "Importing eRequests from the Ocean Portal to an EMR".
Refer
This will allow you to access the Ocean Health Services directly, where you can send and/or receive eReferrals, if you are set up as an Ocean eReferrer. More information about Ocean eReferrals can be found on the Ocean eReferral Network website.
Settings
This requires you to have an administrative Ocean account. Once you enter your Ocean credentials, you will be able access your site's admin settings, including your initial Ocean settings configuration, resetting your Ocean credentials, and accessing advanced settings (if needed).
