Product overview.

The OSCAR Multi-Agency Case Management (CAISI) software is a web-based configuration of the OSCAR McMaster software system designed to enhance the electronic integration of care between agencies. This software is being used by social service agencies and medical providers caring for vulnerable populations that benefit from an integration of their care.

The CAISI Project aims to electronically integrate services and information for those who are homeless at the individual and population levels using this electronic information system.

This software is a configuration of the OSCAR McMaster system, an open source Ministry of Health endorsed electronic medical record, that incorporates additional features geared specifically to the care of people who are homeless.

The CAISI Project, using its open-source development approach, seeks to integrate with major social and IT networks among agencies working with the homeless. These include shelters, drop-in centres, outreach teams, clinics, hospitals, public health services, and emergency medical services.

The CAISI configuration of OSCAR McMaster software supports the rapid assessment of clients, referral to appropriate shelters and agencies, managing waiting lists into services, supporting multi-agency case management, and ultimately client placement into appropriate housing or community placement.
