The Demographic Export window allows you to select additional information from the patient’s eChart as well (allergies, medications, etc.). Upon exporting the patient’s information, a zip file downloads, which contains an XML document with the patient’s information.

Depending on your configuration you may also have the ability to select Integrator (when enabled) gives you access to other OSCAR servers in your cluster. Similarly when enabled MyOSCAR gives you access to the patient portal, the Personal Health Record (PHR).

if you have a card swipe configured, there will be a Click for Card Swipe button. Upon clicking this, the button will change to Ready for Card Swipe. When the button has changed to Ready for Card Swipe, swiping the patient’s health card will input their First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, Sex, and Health Insurance Number (HIN).

Demographic

The Demographic section contains all information pertaining to the individual. The MyOscar field displays the patient’s username if they are registered.  If your clinic has a myOSCAR PHR server configured, clicking on the Register for
myOSCAR button will open a window where you can register the patient for an account

Contact Information

The Contact Information section contains all relevant information for contacting a patient.  You can indicate a preferred contact number. Next to each phone number field is a checkbox, that when checked,
highlights the field.

Health Insurance

The Health Insurance section contains all information related to a patient’s HIN. If your version of OSCAR is configured for online health card validation, the Validate button will validate the patient’s HIN. If configured properly by your OSP, selecting Validate next to HIN# under the Health Insurance section validates the patient’s health card in real time. If the patient’s health card number is valid, a checkmark will appear next to the HIN# . If the patient’s health card number is not valid, a red “x” will appear next to the HIN# . If there is an issue with the connection, a “?” will appear next to the HIN#.

At this time, out-of-province health insurance numbers cannot be validated. Selecting a different province for the Health Card Type will remove the character restrictions for the HIN#
