OSCAR Charter

One Community. One Cause. One OSCAR

The OSCAR Charter defines how OSCAR EMR, OSCAR Canada Users Society (OCUS), Charter OSCAR Service Providers and the community of OSCAR users work together.

This community (One Community) works toward the vision of realizing continuous health improvement for all (One Cause) through open, transparent collaboration. It also provides a robust and comprehensive software product (One OSCAR) in a manner that enhances the effectiveness and integrity of the open-source software model in compliance with relevant standards.

The Charter affirms the foundational principles of OSCAR and provides clarity and transparency regarding our collective stewardship of OSCAR in compliance with OSCAR EMR’s robust quality management system.

Two of our key principles are:

  • We are a mutually interdependent ecosystem of Users, Service Providers, Developers and Integrated App Providers committed to shared values and ethos, and
  • OSCAR represents freedom for EMR users. Preserving that freedom has costs. Collectively the OSCAR Community funds software development and equitably sustains the quality management system in a manner that leverages investment for maximum benefit, individually and collectively.
