One of the most important ways a primary care clinic can streamline its operation is through the implementation of an electronic medical records (EMR) system. Think of an EMR as the “operating system” of a medical clinic. EMRs helps physicians record their examination notes electronically, send referrals, generate prescriptions, and even receive instantaneous test results for their patients. It also improves patient scheduling and facilitates better communication between physicians and staff and maintains a reliable record for physicians and patients.
In Canada, OSCAR is among the most popular EMR solutions. OSCAR (Open Source Clinical Application and Resource) is a web based EMR that was developed at McMaster University and supports the care of over 3.5 million Canadians. OSCAR’s open source nature means that it can customized and modified to reflect the needs of individual clinics and physicians, while allowing them to enjoy community enhanced, cost effective support. Open source also means that OSCAR users, developers, and providers can all contribute to improving the product.
