The cancer survivorship software that has been developed with EQUICARE is truly what patients have been missing up until this point.

A proactive managed follow-up care program can result in increased patient satisfaction and earlier detection of recurrence, both of which are key factors that drive improved patient outcomes.
Specifically, the Institute of Medicine released the study "From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Translation", which defined quality health care for survivors and identified strategies to achieve this. Among the recommendations in this report is the provision for all survivors to be provided with a Record of Care and a Care Plan.
The Record of Care is a summary of the treatments the patient received. The Care Plan is a forward-looking document that identifies for the survivor and side-effects or late-effects they may experience and techniques for managing them, monitoring techniques and assessments, and healthy-living recommendations.
EQUICARE CS™ is a case management solution that can help cancer centers meet and exceed these recommendations, and ultimately improve survivor outcomes.
