WHY OSCAR BC?

OSCAR is one of the most widely used EMR’s in BC and the OSCAR movement remains strong.  This made it necessary to create a central structure to support and improve OSCAR for its users and the patients we serve.

WHEN WE LAUNCHED

OSCAR BC is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in October 2016. The mission of OSCAR BC is to support all Users of OSCAR EMR, founded on the principles of sustaining and enhancing an evolving open source EMR,  through collaboration, transparency and community development.

 

HOW WE WORK

OSCAR BC harnesses the passion and daily experience of OSCAR users to direct future development. Funds collected, primarily through Membership dues, are used to gather BC user input to direct and prioritize future OSCAR-related projects and education.

We provide an array of learning and support resources, including training workshops and events (such as our annual OSCARCON event), webinars and Youtube videos, user manuals and instructions, eForm design and repository,  and advocacy  with government, health authorities and service providers.
