The History of OSCAR

Dr. David Chan is a Canadian health care professional with a dream! Since coming to the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University, Dr.Chan’s original vision had never wavered. His vision continued to be the development of advanced technology software programs for medical professionals. The goal of such a program is to help medical professionals complete their work more efficiently thus providing better care for their patients. OSCAR was created, in part, to address the requirements of the Ontario Provincial Government’s Primary Care Reform Initiative, which is a multi-million dollar initiative towards the transformation of primary care in the province.

OSCAR was started by the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University in 2001. This Open Source medical software was brought out with the aim of producing the web based EMR support for diverse academic and clinical functions. The origins of OSCAR date back to 1988, when Dr. David Chan developed a DOS program called MUFFIN (McGill University Family Folder Information Network) through McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. This was one of the premier programs developed with the spirit of 'Open Source’, designed to provide a low-cost computerized medical record system to primary care clinics. The system was customized to meet the specifications of Provincial Health Care Programs. MUFFIN embodied the problem-oriented, patient-centered and episode-oriented philosophy in its development, implementation and evolution. Although the system was not designed to replace the manual record system, capabilities were built such that patient information could be stored in great detail.

In a mere 14 months of intense programming, OSCAR launched at its first large clinic on April 15, 2002. Dr. Chan's leadership both inspired and propelled the programming team to produce dynamic, interactive, cutting-edge, Open Source Clinical software for the medical profession. This was an amazing feat in just 2 years from conception to the official release on November 17, 2002!

Since its conception in 2001, OSCAR's use, influence and support services have become world-wide, and experienced a tremendous growth percentage of 75% in installations between 2007 and 2008. The user base of OSCAR as of May 2009 reached a level of 700 – 800 users in places like BC, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and PEI. Ontario and BC top the list with the highest number of users, thus maintaining and exceeding this rate of growth up to the present.

OSCAR has excellent Chronic Disease Management Flow Sheets for diseases such as Diabetes, Hypertension, CHF, COPD, Asthma, HIV and INR. OSCAR is also equipped with Chronic Disease Management audit tools. The Chronic Disease Management Flowcharts come with added features like the capability of customization for each patient. These elements help to improve the tracking of individual patient care. This web based EMR software contains maternity forms, reports, audit tools, preventive care modules, immunization modules, enhanced prescribing features and many other up-to-date elements.
