Online PR News – 19-September-2014Equicare Health, a leading provider of care coordination software, is pleased to announce a partnership with OncoLink, Penn Medicines online cancer education resource for patients and healthcare professionals. Through the partnership, Equicare will develop products and services to organize, manage and deliver OncoLinks continuously updated, market leading educational materials. Representatives of both Equicare and OncoLink were available at booth #1144 of the ASTRO Annual Meeting in San Francisco Sept 14 16, 2014 to provide more information about the planned products and services.

Providing patients with oncology education has historically been time consuming for nurses, costly for care providers and often unsatisfactory for patients if materials are generic or out of date. By delivering up to date education targeted specifically to an individuals diagnosis, patients may be more likely to interact with the material and gain a better understanding of their condition. Equicare anticipates making the new educational service available through their care coordination software, EQUICARE CS, as well as enabling organizations to integrate the education services with hospital EMR systems on a standalone basis.

“OncoLink pioneered web based oncology education, and were delighted to enable our customers to share this calibre of material with patients, ” states Equicare President & CEO, Len Grenier. “By combining our strength in patient engagement software with OncoLinks proven success in oncology resources, we can deliver a best in class solution to our customers.”

OncoLinks Executive Director and Vice Chair of Penn Medicines Department of Radiation Oncology, Dr. James Metz adds, “Healthcare organizations are resource limited and so providing them with efficient ways of delivering high quality education can ultimately improve the patient experience. Partnering with Equicare makes it even easier for healthcare providers to educate their patients, and we look forward to working together in future.”

EQUICARE CS is a web-based software solution that enables cancer centers to provide coordinated navigation, distress management, patient engagement, and survivorship care programs. Equicare will be demonstrating this software at booth #1144 at ASTRO, and encourages attendees to visit the booth to see live software demonstrations and to learn more about the planned partnership with OncoLink.
