The Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment is now integrated electronically into OSCAR. The CARES team at Fraser Health partnered with OSCAR BC and the Divisions of Family Practice to bring you the electronic Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment tool (e-CGA), which can calculate a frailty index at point of service.  

The Doctors Technology Office (DTO) and Practice Support Program (PSP) in collaboration with the electronic medical record (EMR) vendor have developed EMR orientation guides that outline how to submit encounter, attachment and shift records using a step-by-step approach. Published 2022 / Updated October 2022
