Provincial Specific Features
— this page is currently being edited. come back for more updates —
Since Health-Care is a provincial jurisdiction, there are features in Oscar that may need to be adjusted for each province.
These features include Billing, Lab Results and other province-specific services.
Labs are provided by Excelleris.
The Ontario government supplies the following services:
There is already a page describing the setup to receive Lab Results from the various providers.
The Quebec government has setup a portal for health-related information. Currently, this is not integrated with Oscar. The portal includes demographic info, prescriptions and lab results that are downladable to PDFs. The portal requires a Security Key that is provided to all physicians (except dentists). The key must be used to access the RAMQ Visualizer portal. The security software that is required is located at: https://externes.ramq.gouv.qc.ca/trousses/
Note: The Security Key requires Windows! so Apple users will need to install Parallels or a Windows VM.
There is no direct integration, but it’s easy to write a RbT (Report By Template) that can download physician appointment information. That can be edited and uploaded to the various third-party billing companies.
For now, the only work-around is to use the Visualizer to download Lab Results to PDFs then use the Oscar InBox to add them to the patient chart.
