CareConnect for OSCAR EMR Clinics


We are excited to share CareConnect is now available to OSCAR EMR private practice clinics in the VCH Catchment area that use an ASP hosted (offsite server/cloud hosted) EMR, and are connected to the Private Physician Network (PPN).  

The PPN provides clinics with secure access to CareConnect, and is used by all EMRs to access CareConnect.  If your clinic is not connected to the PPN, PHSA can deploy this to your practice at no charge*. 

Though our work with OSCAR BC, Physicians and staff can gain rapid access to CareConnect by clicking a button in the EMR to display the patient's CareConnect information with no additional searching.  

The CareConnect 'button' integration  will work with any OSCAR Service Provider part of OSCAR BC.

* The PPN is funded by the Ministry of Health. Please contact the PPN team for more information regarding PPN installation for your clinic. 

Currently, there is no option to deploy the PPN to clinics that have a locally-hosted/on site server. The VCH project team is working with the Ministry of Health to share documentation on this decision.

 

If you are unsure of your clinic set up, please talk to your OSCAR Service Provider. 

 

CareConnect is deployed to a clinic at no cost. 

If your clinic is not on the PPN, the PPN can be deployed to your clinic. The PPN is funded by the Ministry of Health and managed by PHSA. Please contact the PPN team regarding PPN installation for your clinic. 

* The PPN is funded by the Ministry of Health. Please contact the PPN team for more information regarding PPN installation for your clinic.

For Clinics that are ASP hosted, or clinics who would like more information about the PPN in general, please contact the PPN team at ppnadmin@phsa.ca
