EQUICARE CS™ (ECS) is a complete oncology patient management solution designed to enable healthcare providers to effectively coordinate care for patients on their journey through screening, treatment and into survivorship. ECS includes tools for navigation, survivorship care planning, psycho-social distress management, and  patient engagement, including a patient portal with all of the features found in Active Patient Portal (APP).

Follow-up survivorship care planning can help retain patients within your care network to ensure they receive the care required for best health outcomes. By using an electronic system to manage patients, organizations are typically able to operate more efficiently and see more patients. The improvements in patient retention and operational efficiency can enable your organization to realize a return on investment in survivorship.  Get an estimate of your ROI today.
