PS Suite: Using Quick Links to Automatically Add Ocean eForms

There are several options for automatically queueing eForms from PS Suite.

Search in the CognisantMD Clinical Resource Library to download and install the following custom forms in PS Suite:

  • Ocean - Add Form - phq9|gad7 (this form can queue a list of individual eForms)
  • Ocean - Add Favourite - PHE (this form will queue an Ocean favourite)

To learn how to install a custom form in PSS once downloaded, please refer to this article.

Once imported, you can insert these forms into a patient's chart in PSS. Upon insertion, the forms will instantly insert the Ocean custom form and queue the corresponding eForms or favourites. For convenience, these custom forms will then remove themselves automatically from the chart.

If you would like to configure the "Ocean - Add Form" custom form to add specific eForms, simply rename it and add the eForm references ("refs") to the name at the end. eForm refs can be found in the eForm's URL when previewing it. 

For example, the eForm URL for the CAGE Questionnaire is:; therefore, the eForm ref is "cageQ". Similarly, the eForm URL for the AUDIT questionnaire is, so its eForm ref is "auditQ". So, if you wanted to automatically add the CAGE Questionnaire and the AUDIT questionnaire, change the form's name to "Ocean - Add Form - cageQ|auditQ". Use the pipe ("|") character to separate the eForm references.

If you want to add one of your favourite eForms, called "My Favourite", change the "Ocean - Add Favourite - PHE" form to "Ocean - Add Favourite - My Favourite".
