Equicare Health introduces oncology education module at HIMSS 2016 conference

Vancouver, CANADA – February 29, 2016 – Equicare Health Inc., the leading supplier of comprehensive oncology care coordination solutions, will introduce an education module featuring content from industry leaders OncoLink, at their booth at HIMSS 2016 conference. Equicare partnered with Oncolink, the world’s largest online cancer information provider, in 2014 to develop oncology education products and services, and is pleased to introduce this fully integrated education module at HIMSS.

“OncoLink’s educational content is integrated right into Equicare’s software interface, effectively tripling our educational resources,” states Equicare CEO, Len Grenier. “The addition of comprehensive drug fact sheets rounds out the material we’re offering patients and providers, making Equicare an industry best resource for the delivery of oncology education.”

To manage these additional resources, Equicare has also introduced a streamlined interface to select and assign material to patients.

“This interface will dramatically reduce the time it takes to assign patient specific education by enabling providers to pre-select articles applicable to various stages of cancer care,” adds Grenier.

Equicare will be demonstrating the educational module at booth #4175 at HIMSS Annual Conference in Las Vegas, March 1st – 3rd. This feature will be available in the next release of Equicare’s software in Spring 2016.
