Of Standards and Certifications

Much discussion is going on in the web-o-sphere these days about Health Canada's recent decision regarding the classification of EMR products as a Class II Medical Device.

Working within the regulatory frameworks of various jurisdictions are a normal way of life for many software applications, and OSCAR continues to meet and exceed these regulations on a regular basis.

Because of OSCAR's unique role in numerous social communities and academic organizations, the platform has always been at the forefront of technology, capability, privacy, and regulation.

In many cases, OSCAR leads the industry in terms of practice management. For example, OSCAR's efforts concerning security and privacy enhancing technology, especially as it pertains to delivering control and consent to clients over their own medical information, continuously shines as an example for others to follow.

It is no surprise then, that the OSCAR community continues to invest to achieve all relevant certifications for all jurisdictions that the software is deployed.
