You can send a referral using any of the methods described above (direct from the Cambridge Memorial Hospital website, from the Ocean eReferral Directory, or from an integrated EMR). In order to ensure that your referrals are tracked in the Portal, you need to ensure that you are logged into Ocean before completing the referral.
After completing the referral details and clicking on ‘Send eReferral’ for the first time, you will be prompted to select, ‘Sign In With Existing Ocean Account,’ ‘Sign Up For A New Ocean Account’ (to track the referral) or ‘Enter My Email Now’ (to send without tracking).
Once that is complete, your referral is automatically sent and a “review window” with a summary of the referral is displayed. If you are not using an integrated EMR, you can copy and paste this summary into the patient record (for integrated EMRs, the summary automatically appears).
