How Ocean Studies work
Use our Ocean Form Builder to design a survey form complete with questions, mandatory fields, and conditional logic. Ocean Studies makes it easy to get a study up and running quickly with virtually no limits to survey design.
Study participants can be presented with a survey on tablets at the point of care, or via a secure message to complete it at home. Data collected can be stored anonymously for study purposes with the option to select data points to be simultaneously added to the EMR patient record for clinical purposes.
You can download data collected via Ocean Studies at any time using the secure Ocean Portal. Only authorized users at your site can access the data for export. Patient and survey data are always kept secure and private for your sole use.
Conduct surveys automatically, in person or at home
In clinics and waiting rooms

At home online follow-ups
Minimize loss to follow-up by sending surveys for patients to complete at home. Surveys can be sent on a case-by-case basis, or automated using Patient Reminders.Patient Reminders

Common questions about Ocean Studies
Yes, Ocean Studies can attach a secure and unique identifier to individual patient survey responses during the anonymization process. This process (called pseudonymization) allows you to easily link follow-up survey responses to individual patients, without having to store any information that could identify the patient.
Ocean Studies was designed to meet the highest data privacy standards. With individual, site-specific encryption, adherence with PHIPA data requirements, and Canadian data storage, Ocean Studies is the first user-friendly survey platform to meet or exceed patient data privacy standards in Canada.
