Managed open-source technology

OSCAR EMR is open-source, meaning that it is available free of any licensing fees and the software is open to anyone to install, use, develop, and modify. Using OSCAR EMR will also give you access to the large, engaged community of users, developers, and educators that work together to teach one another, share ideas, create new features, and make continuous improvements to the platform. The open-source technology gives you the freedom to choose your OSP and protects your data from proprietary system vendors that lock in users to their particular system setup.

With OscarHost, you can get all of the advantages of OSCAR without the resources necessary for hosting, management, and upkeep. Our service provides you with reliable uptime, real-time backups, software updates, automated failovers, and more, all hosted out of your office in secure data centres across Canada.

We take great care of your EMR so you can get back to taking care of your patients.

The lack of licensing fees for the open source software keeps your costs way down versus the proprietary vendors. With OscarHost all you are paying for is the hosting and support to make sure your Oscar instance and clinic are up and running.
