Accessible from Administration Panel>Forms/eForms, this menu gives you various options with regards to forms, eForms and consult appointment instructions in OSCAR.
Adding and managing Forms and eForms in OSCAR
Forms vs. eForms: The difference is that forms are non-editable “templates”, that come pre-installed with OSCAR. They are coded in Java and cannot be changed by the user. New forms are not being added to OSCAR.  Forms have been replaced with eform alternatives (Rourke 2017 form with Rourke 2020 eform, ON AR enhanced with OAR-2017 antenatal eform etc.) but are retained to allow for display of prior data.
eForms are HTML based “templates” that users can easily create, share and fully customize themselves – either from scratch or using OSCAR’s built-in eForm generator (that writes the Javascript for you!).
See this guide on creating eForms from scratch. To upload eForms to OSCAR, click “Manage eForms” in the admin panel. See this article for details on uploading .zip eForms.

Select Forms

  1. Click on Select Forms
  2. Click one at a time or CTRL-click a number of them
  3. Add them to the list

The selected forms will now be usable in OSCAR from the eChart (hover over the + next to Forms on the left in the eChart and select the form you want to add).

Import Form Data

Use this function to import data for a specific form into the OSCAR database.

Manage eForms

One of the greatest features of OSCAR is the ability for end users to make eForms for their own use and share them with the community.  Manage eForms gives you a list of current eForms installed on your OSCAR. You can edit their code, delete, export or upload new eForms (either upload an eForm html file or a zip file package of the eForm).

The easy way to make your own eForm with lots of powerful features is the eForm generator.

eForm Groups

Mature clinics may have hundreds of eForms. eForm groups are a way of organizing related forms for easy access.
