e-Booking option for Oscar coming soon

**Update: MyHealthAccess has been up and running for some time now, and our clients love it! You can check out our launch announcement here **

Yesterday, Canada Health Infoway opened up the second Wave of its e-Booking Initiative. The program will be accepting applicants for funding until December 15th or until the money runs out. For anyone unfamiliar with the program it gives approved practices who implement e-Booking up to $2000 for the first clinician in an office and up to $750 for each additional clinician in a practice. The program gives practices a full 12-month period to implement the e-Booking solution in their practice once approved.

You can read-up on the e-Booking initiative Here. If you have any questions on the program you can reach the Canada Health Infoway e-Booking office at 1-866-214-4274 ext. 3437 or by email at

Cloud Practice Inc (the parent company behind is proud to announce that we are releasing an e-Booking product that is fully integrated with Oscar EMR which will launch in beta in early November. The product is called MyHealthAccess and it is a web-based system that will allow patients to book into the empty slots in your Oscar schedule, receive automated appointment reminders by email and text message, allow you to message patients directly, and notify your office of changes in your patient's contact details. We hope to have a demo available for interested customers within the next week or so. We plan to offer the service free for up to 100 patient connections and there will be paid programs available after that starting at $99/m.

If you are interested in taking advantage of the e-Booking initiative within the next year we would suggest that you apply for the funding Here as soon as possible. Please say on the application that you plan to the use the MyHealthAccess solution by Cloud Practice Inc for your online booking program.

Setting Schedules in the Oscar EMR

We will be hosting a free web-based Oscar learning webinar on Wednesday, October 22nd at noon (PDT). Kelly Morris will be covering the schedule setting features in the Oscar EMR.

This Webinar will begin with a 30 minute presentation on the scheduling features within Oscar. Many offices don't take advantage of Oscar's scheduling features which can really help with your practice management. The presentation will cover setting up templates and template codes, setting schedules, appointment status settings, and appointment types.

Following the presentation we will be available for a Scheduling question and answer period of up to 30 minutes. Please come prepared with your scheduling questions. A recording of the presentation will be made available.

You can sign up to attend this OscarHost lunchinar by completing the signup form. It is open to everyone, so please share with your friends and colleagues that might find it useful!

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions and we hope to see you on September 17th!
