Agenda highlights

Thursday May 2nd 2013: This is an evening-only meeting with no registration fee between 6:30 and 9:00 pm to demonstrate the many benefits of the OSCAR EMR to physicians looking for an inexpensive, yet highly versatile and effective Electronic Medical Record, that is being used by thousands of MDs across the country. You will also be able to learn about MyOSCAR, an enhancement that you may choose to add at any time, to provide access to your patients with selected parts of their medical chart. Finally you will learn about the warmly supportive and burgeoning community of OSCAR users here in BC and across the country.

Friday May 3th will have Jay Gallagher and Marc Dumontier, Lead Developers from OSCAR McMaster, and Dr. David Chan, OSCAR's founder, showing us all the new programming for 2013. There will be time to ask questions. You will see a bunch of cool new tools built by OSCAR users and there will be a session on keeping OSCAR more secure in your practice . Hear about how open source works and how to be a good open source citizen. We will also have an update on governance of OSCAR in Canada and where OSCAR is headed in the future. You will get a sneak peak at the brand new BC antenatal record and the mysterious Darius Opensource will teach us about using greasemonkey to extend OSCAR to fit your workflow. For fun there will be the annual OSCAR awards and lots of opportunities to network!
Friday afternoon there will be a separate meeting for OSCAR MOAs with an MOA version of OSCAR 101 as well as an evening meeting for OSCAR support providers.
Saturday May 4th
  will be a series of concurrent in-depth workshops for those who want to really learn more about different OSCAR functions. There will be sessions for OSCAR beginners and advanced OSCAR users. There is a hands-on session on building eforms in OSCAR and workshops on the personally controlled health record,MyOSCAR  and the social networking tool for health providers, MyDrugRef. There will be an in depth session on practice performance using OSCAR admin tools, a session about using OSCAR for obstetrical care and a workshop on MyOSCAR.
