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. OSCAR users will demonstrate the EMR including use with voice recognition software, tools for maternity and newborn care, leading chronic disease management tools, prescribing tools, billing and much more!
OSCAR is an open-source (free), Canadian web-based EMR, developed and driven by its users. Users pay no licensing costs and have the freedom to choose who provides support. There are a large number of users in Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, PEI, and recently Alberta. It has won several prestigious awards for IT innovation.
