Useful resources for Oscar EMR users | The OscarHost blog

Having trouble remembering how to set up a new provider in your Oscar instance? Or maybe you just need a quick refresher on how to create a new schedule for a part-time doctor. Looking for a particular eForm, but not sure where to find it? Here are some incredibly useful Oscar resources that can help you solve these issues and more!

The Oscar Manual


One of the most extensive resources available for Oscar users is the Oscar User's Manual. The Table of Contents provides an overview of what's available in the manual and links to various sections that have information and step-by-step guides (screenshots included!) to Oscar features and options. If you're looking for some help or just some more information about what Oscar can do, this is a great place to start.


OscarHost Video Tutorials


If you're more of a visual learner, make sure to check out the OscarHost YouTube channel. We've uploaded a number of tutorial videos to help our customers with basic Oscar setup and use.

eForms


Another great resource on the Oscar Canada site is the eForms section. This is where you can find lists of eForms that have already been built and are shared with the Oscar community. If you're looking for a particular eForm, especially one that is quite common such as a lab requisition or imaging request, this is a good resource to bookmark. The eForms are sorted into categories, often grouped by province or specialty, and offer variations for different regional health authorities. If you find one that fits your needs, just let us know and we can upload it into your instance right away (or find out how to create your own with help from the manual or our video).

We're also able to build custom eForms for you if you can't find exactly what you're looking for. We will need a PDF of the form in order to create it. Please note that our regular custom work rates will apply.


User Lists


There are also Oscar Discussion Forums available to subscribe to if you'd like to be part of the Oscar conversation. You can sign up for the general discussion list here.


OscarHost Support


As always, you can contact us for information or help with Oscar and we'll be more than happy to help. We're currently working on setting up a new support portal for OscarHost customers that will have access to common issues and their resolutions, as well as other sources to help you get the most out of Oscar.

We hope you'll find these resources useful. If you have any questions or need more help navigating through Oscar, let us know!

Until next time,
the OscarHost team
