Oscar Applications


Oscar Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is the leading open source EMR in Canada and its open source community are highly regarded

We support the open source software community wholeheartedly and volunteer our services often to help Oscar EMR evolve. However sometimes modifications to Oscar require more specialized detail and are needed immediately by smaller groups of users. These types of modifications can only be delivered as plug-ins.
We have invested years of learning, listening to thousands of suggestions and observing the health clinic environment. As a result COLCAMEX has become Western Canada’s first and only developer who can offer you an Oscar EMR modification as a plugin.

The Plugin Advantage

COLCAMEX plugins for Oscar EMR are highly specialized modifications for smaller groups of users which can be delivered without delay. In addition plugins are:

  • update-able as needed without disturbing your current Oscar installation
  • installable by a skilled user without disturbing your current Oscar installation
  • developed by health information technology professionals with intimate knowledge about local requirements
  • designed to enhance Oscar EMR.
