An EMR, which stands for Electronic Medical Record system, is the “operating system” of a medical clinic, helping physicians digitally record notes, generate prescriptions and referrals, and even receive test results. OSCAR is a web-based, open source EMR developed at McMaster University and supports the care of over 3.5 million Canadians. WELL’s acquisitions allow the company to leverage an important digital tool for patient care supported by an enthusiastic open source OSCAR community, to improve the doctor and patient experience.
