The Ocean Portal can be accessed at ocean.cognisantmd.com.
If you have an Ocean user account, signing into the Ocean Portal will allow you to view and configure all the various features of Ocean. Below you will find a basic overview of all 6 tabs available in the Ocean Portal.
- In the Patients tab, you can view all of your patients who have been loaded into Ocean.
- From there, you can click on any of the patients listed to view any clinical notes that have been generated from this patient completing eForm(s). From this window, you can also queue an eForm for a patient, email a patient, send an eReferral for them through the Ocean eReferral Network (if you are registered as an eReferrer), remove a patient from Ocean, and access advanced settings for a patient (if needed).
- You also have more options available to you in the Actions menu, located at the bottom left of this tab, including: creating a new patient in Ocean, synchronizing your appointments (for Accuro clients only), uploading a cohort of patients, emailing a patient cohort, or exporting a patient cohort.
- In the eRequests tab, you can access submissions of eForms that have been completed and submitted through a publicly-available Ocean link (i.e. eRequests links or eReferrals).
- From here, you can view details about any eRequest submissions by clicking on a specific entry listed.
- The different options in the menu along the left will allow you to view your inboxes of eRequest submissions. Below that at the bottom left, you also have more options available to you in the expandable Actions menu. This Actions menu will allow you to create a new inbound eRequest, view the Ocean eReferral Network, export eReferral analytics data, update your wait times, and search through your eReferral history.
- Note: If you are interested using eRequests or eReferrals, an additional fee will apply for these Ocean services (please refer to our pricing page for more details). If you would like to set up an eRequests link (i.e. having an eForm available for patients to complete on a publicly-available online link), please refer to our eRequest Setup Guide.
