Allowing Access to an Ocean Study from a Website

Ocean supports public online questionnaires for any study. This is particularly useful for things like patient experience surveys.

To enable this:

Navigate to the Studies tab and find the study you want to create a public link for. Click "Configure" next to the study in question to change its settings.

Click "Allow online submissions for this study using a public URL" in the configuration panel for the study. This will display a URL that you can add to your website.

There is no additional cost although normal study submission fees will apply depending on the study tier (i.e. the same as if an Ocean Tablet was used).


A few notes:

  • If a patient completes a study survey via your website, the data in the export will have a submission source of "Public Online Questionnaire" so you will know that it came from your website link.
  • Form memory and participant keys will be disabled for public online questionnaires since the patient is truly anonymous; i.e. the last name, birthdate, HN and sex is not known as it might be for a web questionnaire or tablet so Ocean will not "remember" that a particular patient has completed a form for use in tablet rules or form scripts.
