At OscarHost we want to make sure all of our clients have the resources they need to succeed and get the most out of their OSCAR EMR, so we've compiled a few resources that we feel will be of benefit..

What is your Refund Policy?

Oscar Host offers a free 30-day trial on all new accounts. If you would like to continue using our service after 30-days, you will have to upgrade to a paid subscription through your account manager.

If you have upgraded to a paid subscription and you cancel your account you won't be charged again, but you are responsible for whatever charges have already been incurred for the current billing period. For example, if your billing cycle is on the 18th of every month, and you cancel on the 24th, you'll still have to pay for the current month, but you won't be charged again after that. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.

How do I cancel my account?

You can cancel your Oscar Host EMR account at any time by contacting your account manager, sending an email to support@oscarhost.ca or by calling us at 1-888-686-8560. Oscar Host charges subscribers on a month to month basis with no long-term contracts so you can cancel anytime and you will not be charged again.

How are improvements to Oscar made?

The Oscar EMR is an open-source development project managed primarily by McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Aside from McMaster there is also a community of developers (like us) that contribute changes, additions, and bug fixes to the source code. We make changes based on feedback from our clients and we submit our code update requests on SourceForge. You can check out what the community is currently working on with the SourceForge tracker here: http://sourceforge.net/tracker?group_id=66701

How is billing integrated and updated?

Once you have become familiar with your Oscar Host electronic medical records interface we can integrate billing for you free of charge. Billing integration requires some simple modifications to your ASP Oscar instance that are not available in the web interface. Once billing has been correctly integrated, Oscar can request new billing codes from the government with the simple click of a buton so you can easily keep your billing codes up to date.

How are labs integrated?

Electronic Lab upload modules are integrated in the Oscar EMR for most major lab providers in BC and Ontario with HL7 file data standards. This includes Excelleris, LifeLabs, CML, and more! Some electronic lab uploads are manual and others are automatic. Contact us to find out which lab reports have been automated with our hosted system and which ones we are currently working on.

What is an Oscar Service Provider and why do I need one?

Oscar is an open source project so the code is freely available for anyone to set-up or install. Many people have the ability to set-up and maintain a secure and stable Oscar system, most people do not. Oscar service providers like OscarHost provide medical care providers with the expertise to set-up, secure and maintain an Oscar instance at generally far lower cost than a proprietary EMR system. Oscar Host is an ASP (Applications Service Provider) for a hosted Oscar install which means you are not required to buy and install servers in your office. For a complete list of the services we offer please click here.

A great OSP can be the difference between getting your clinic off the ground, and getting your clinic running. It's always worth it to take the time to do the training, to watch the videos, and make sure you and your staff know how to get the most out of your OSCAR EMR.
