UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University have partnered to create a pharmacist module within OSCAR, the open-source electronic medical record (EMR) system.
The new module will support pharmacists working in care teams and is the first time that a made-in-Canada EMR contains both pharmacist and physician functionality. Many current EMR systems meet the specific needs of family physicians only. To learn more click here.
