Send a Caredove referral directly from Ocean

Refer online to home and community care services found in Caredove with pre-populated client and user data from the Ocean client profile.

No switching systems, no double data entry.

The Ontario eServices Program created the System Coordinated Access Program (SCA) to help coordinate access to health services.

The current SCA Program with Ocean focuses on Diabetes, Orthopedic Specialists, and Chronic Disease Prevention & Management. For other eReferral flows to community support services, the SCA leverages Caredove as the preferred SCA ecosystem partner and best-of-breed solution for this sector. This includes a full integration with Ocean, enabling users to start a referral in Ocean, then be received by Community Support Service providers using Caredove and share referral status updates between systems. This approach is consistent with the eHealth Ontario provincial strategy for eReferrals.

“One of the goals of the SCA program is to leverage innovative technology solutions to create referral solutions across the province. In Waterloo Wellington, this particular solution is based on OceanMD’s successful Ocean platform, which will bring pre-existing referral processes and systems into a connected environment where information can flow and be distributed across the continuum of care.”

“Caredove has enabled quick, confident transitions to community programs in Waterloo Wellington since 2013. It has simplified the process for referrers and eliminated delays and confusion.”
