  • DSQ Deployment in Montreal. All physicians can have access to the DSQ (Dossier Sante Quebec). You sign-up, get a USB key for security, install the software (Windows only) and get $1,800.
  • HL7 Lab update. Yes, we’re getting closer!
  • Billing: I have done some research.  3rd party billing fees in QC range from $0.50 per patient to 1.5% of billing.  There are a number of alternatives being worked on to integrate Oscar and RAMQ billing.
  • Questions?

* Our usual date is the 3rd Thursday of the month. Add it to your calendar now.

The Oscar encounter screen has a lot of information and there are many ways in which it can be used.  This evening is designed to share information about various shortcuts to charting in Oscar.  We will cover eForms, templates, preventions, measurements and prescriptions.

We want to hear from you.  What you find easy and difficult.  What you like and what you think can be improved.

Hopefully, you will find ways to become more efficient Oscar users.

This meeting is primarily for physicians that use Oscar.  Family doctors and Specialists are both welcome.  If you have an interest in Oscar charting, don’t hesitate.
