OVERS Implementation

Steps for OVERS Implementation

  1. Establish a Facility Administrator (for medical facilities)
  2. Submit OVERS enrollment forms for all users
  3. Schedule training

1. Establish a Facility Administrator

The facility administrator will be the ‘super user’ of the system and single point of contact for medical providers with questions when completing a death record.

We have seen great success with medical facilities that have one or more facility administrators in place. Providers feel more comfortable working with someone in-house.

The main duties of a facility administrator are to help with the enrollment process, reset user passwords and help answer death registration questions. Our user guide for facility administrators explains how.

To sign up, please complete our OVERS Facility Administrator Acknowledgment of Responsibilities Agreement as well as an OVERS Enrollment Form and fax them to CHS.


2. Submit OVERS enrollment forms for all users

Visit our Accessing OVERS page for full instructions and to download our enrollment form.

For every user needing an OVERS account, an enrollment form must be completed and submit to CHS. Please keep in mind that it may take 1-2 days for the user account to be completed, so we strongly recommend sending these in as soon as possible.


3. Schedule training

For self-paced and -directed training, we provide a number of user guides and web tutorials for you and your medical staff to learn the OVERS program.

We also offer live, interactive web-based trainings conducted by our staff. Anyone at the facility that plans to use OVERS may attend. These trainings typically take 30-60 minutes to complete. Contact our trainer at CHS.PartnerServices@dhsoha.state.or.us to schedule a training.
