The changes should be ready within a couple of days, and I will be testing it on a fake patient database before doing a live billing trial in my office.
Labs module is basically going to happen at the same time.
Great news for people interest in OSCAR.
I am aware that only 3 vendors are "approved" vendors for Alberta for POSP funding. I had considered making OSCAR "VCUR compliant" so that it can be qualified as a 4th vendor.
I might just go ahead and do that.....but I can't think of any reason to bother.
The paperwork and administration involved in getting POSP funding to cover a measly $250 per month for OSCAR support (including billing) is not worth the painful time and effort to get and maintain POSP funding.
I have had many inquiries from Physicians who are ready to leave POSP behind in favour of OSCAR.
We'll see how things transpire - but I think that in the long run, OSCAR will take over in Alberta and the POSP office will have to evolve to keep up with it. I would welcome a collaborative effort, but there is currently an understandable lack of interest from their end.
That will hopefully change over the next couple of years.
