BC OSCAR demo being held April 10 2008
OSCAR Open Source Electronic Medical Record Demonstration
The BC OSCAR User Group invites you to come and hear about Free / Open Source software and how physicians and midwives are driving the OSCAR (Open Source Clinical Application Resource) Electronic Medical Record in BC. There will be a presentation by Dr David Chan, from McMaster University, OSCAR’s founder, and the OSCAR user community in BC. The SCBP will be demonstrating the new BCPHP maternity care records.
OSCAR is a web-based electronic medical record system currently operating in a number of clinics both in Canada and around the world. In BC – our user base has doubled in the past 12 months, as BC takes a bigger role in the development of the software for our physician group.
OSCAR software has no licensing costs. Users are free to choose who provides maintenance and support to their system. For more information visit http://www.oscarcanada.org/
