Installation & Training

Equicare provides you with the flexibility to deploy EQUICARE CS™ (ECS) in the environment that best suits your organization. We can provide you with a secure, cloud based hosting solution, a turnkey package that includes hardware, or use your existing equipment to set up a virtual environment in which to deploy ECS.

We’ve worked hard to make ECS user friendly and intuitive so that you can easily incorporate it into your program.  But to get the most from ECS, you’ll benefit from our support, and that’s why we provide a comprehensive installation and training program, with a team of clinical, technical and product experts to guide your team from installation through to launch.
