About OceanMD

Meet the company behind Canada’s digital gateway for patient engagement and clinical service requests

OceanMD is Canada’s leading provider of integrated solutions designed to connect patients, providers, and healthcare systems through the secure exchange of healthcare data. As a cloud-based platform, Ocean integrates with over 25 clinical information systems and repositories using open, standards-based APIs and a library of thousands of clinical and administrative forms.

Ocean’s full suite of EMR-integrated patient engagement solutions, from online booking to patient messages, and check-in kiosks, is reducing the burden on providers and clinic staff, while empowering patients to access their own health data. The same platform is giving clinicians a way to easily send eReferrals and eConsults through the Ocean Provider Network, improving overall system efficiency and reducing wait times.

By connecting disconnected systems, replacing paper forms and faxes, and giving patients ways to connect with clinicians online, OceanMD is providing the foundation for digitally enabled healthcare across Canada.

From a clinician startup to industry standard


Ocean Tablets are Launched

The Ocean Platform is launched as an EMR- integrated, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Platform with a forms library and editor as well as Patient Tablets that allow patients to complete forms and contribute directly to their own patient record. Later that year, Ocean Studies and Online Forms (now Patient Messages) are also launched with our first big clinic, St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.


Ocean Healthmap and eReferrals Launch

The Ocean Healthmap Directory is launched, and Ocean eReferrals go live at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

This year, Ocean Website Forms are also added to the Patient Engagement Suite, giving patients a “self-serve” option to complete digital forms and communicate with their healthcare provider.


Over 1 million patient charts updated

Ocean hits a major milestone, with over 1 million patient charts updated with input from patients using Ocean’s patient engagement tools.

This year, Ocean eReferrals are also selected for a government-sponsored regional roll-out in Ontario.


Ocean officially integrates with the leading EMRs in Canada

Ocean adds Accuro as a reseller, expanding Ocean’s official supported integrations to include the leading EMRs in Canada including TELUS PS Suite, OSCAR, and Med Access.


Ocean Adds Online Booking

Responding to market demand, Ocean launches Online Booking as part of the patient engagement suite, rounding out the solution to provide a full suite of add-on tools.


First HL7® FHIR® integration

The Ocean team helps lead the design and the first commercial implementation of the pan-Canadian FHIR eReferral iGuide, providing native support for HL7 FHIR® APIs through Ocean. Shortly after, EPIC EHR starts integration work with a goal of launching in early 2021.


WELL Health acquisition

Ocean joins the WELL Health Technologies family of companies, Canada’s largest network of outpatient medical clinics serving primary and specialized healthcare services and a leading provider of digital health solutions.



1 million eReferrals sent

Ocean celebrates over 1,000,000 eReferrals sent on the Ocean Platform. The Ocean Provider Network also expands to Nova Scotia, starting with an eConsult pilot and extending into a commitment to implement eReferrals province-wide in 2023.
