Online Search, Consultation, and Reporting (OSCAR) System

“The Indian Health Service (IHS) Health Promotion/Disease Prevention (HP/DP), Behavioral Health, and Improving Patient Care (IPC) Programs are creating an inventory of Best (i.e., Evidence-Based) Practice, Promising Practice, Local Effort (BP/PP/LE), Resources, and Policies occurring among American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, schools, work sites, health centers/clinics, and hospitals.

The purpose of this inventory is to:

Assist our AI/AN communities with getting the information and health services they need;
Form an IHS database of Best Practices, Promising Practices, Local Efforts, Resources, and Policies that can be easily accessed on the IHS website;
Improve informed consultation with Tribal and Urban programs by facilitating transparency in IHS and IHS supported activities; and,
Highlight the great work that occurs in the field.”
