Major Components of an EMR
Many clinics have a computer-based system for patient scheduling. Plus they have another, often separate one, for billing and government invoice submission. The patient's medical records are maintained in paper files. Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems typically combine the above functions (scheduling, billing, and patient's records) into one integrated computer system.
OSCAR McMaster™ Integrated EMR System
We recommend using the OSCAR McMaster system to integrate your clinic's scheduling, billing, and patient's records. Plus it supports a lot more as detailed here.

OSCAR McMaster Demo
The OSCAR McMaster Users Group has a test site that you can try out OSCAR right now. Since this is a demo system, it may not show the latest OSCAR features. Although it is best to know a little bit about OSCAR before you try it out, we know that you want to give it a try anyway so here is how you do it. If you encounter problems with the demo site consult http://oscarcanada.org/support/demo.

You can install a copy of OSCAR McMaster yourself since it is freely distributed on the web. But we advise against it because it is best done by a computer expert familiar with the various OSCAR components and who has configured and installed OSCAR before and who is familiar with secure networks and backup systems. This is where the experts at CanEMR Medical Solutions can help. We can also assist you in planning the implementation of your EMR and help applying for provincial grants (if available) to help fund the effort.
