Does your clinic use Ocean already?

If your clinic already has an Ocean site, please request an invitation from your Ocean administrative user. Refer to "Adding a New User to Your Site" for instructions.

Purchase Your Hardware

Ocean Tablet users:

Ocean Tablets require a WiFi-connected Android device (running Android 5.0 or higher). More details and our recommendations are included in the "Buy Your Tablet(s)" step of the Tablet Set-Up Guide.

Ocean Kiosk users:

Ocean kiosk stands and peripheral hardware can be ordered directly from CognisantMD from the Ocean Check-In Kiosk product page. You will also need to independently purchase a compatible tablet for your kiosk (i.e. the Samsung Galaxy Tab E (9.6") or Samsung Galaxy A (10.1")).

Configure Your EMR

You can find step-by-step instructions to connect your integrated EMR to Ocean using the links below. If you are not using an integrated EMR, you can learn how to get started with the web portal by reading the Ocean Web Portal Setup Guide.

Get Started Using Ocean with Your Patients

Now that you've finished configuring your EMR to enable Ocean and all of your Ocean products are set up and ready to go, you are ready to start using Ocean with your patients.

The first thing you'll want to do is explore the Ocean eForm Library (in the eForms tab of the Ocean Portal) to identify and/or create the questionnaires that you would like your patients to fill out. For more instructions on navigating the library, please refer to "eForms in Ocean's Core Library".
