FRASER HEALTH CARES
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
Report by Template
The Report by Template is a powerful way to access data from anywhere in any OSCAR. The following describes the RBT for OSCAR 19 and Open OSCAR. While the interface is different, the steps are similar for older OSCAR EMR versions.

This Guide assists form creators, physicians, and administrative staff, with creating, editing, and distributing forms. The long-term goal is to integrate forms directly into electronic medical records (EMR) through the provincial eForms Project; however, in the interim this guide offers best practices on how to create and update a form, and whether or not a form is needed, and how to support the update process.
