Sending and receiving referrals online is a great way to save time, make sure your patients are quickly seen, and reduce the administrative burden of tracking referrals.
This can all be done right from your Avaros EMR with integrated Ocean eReferrals.
What You'll Need to Get Started
Create your Ocean Account - If you don't already have an Ocean account set up for your Clinic, you can set one up by following the steps in the Ocean Getting Started Guide, here.
- Activate your Ocean Toolbar - To use Ocean, you'll need to activate your Ocean toolbar which appears in a patient's eChart. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have the toolbar activated.
- Enter your Ocean Credentials in Avaros - After the Ocean toolbar has been activated, login to Avaros and open any patient's eChart. Maximize the Ocean toolbar, then click 'Settings' and enter your Ocean credentials and encryption key.
After setting up your toolbar, add Avaros as a user in Ocean by going to the Ocean portal then clicking 'Menu' → 'Admin' → 'Users' → 'Invite Users to this Site' and invite email@example.com so we can help with your setup. After we've accepted the invitation, you'll need to return to the 'Menu' → 'Admin' → 'Users' section in the Ocean portal and check the "Admin" checkbox besides the Avaros User.
Test Your Connection
If you now open the Ocean eForm from a patient's chart, you can see the patient has successfully synced to Ocean and a unique Ocean identifying number for that patient displayed on the eForm.
