Introduction

IRCS, Inc. was founded in 1983 because of an opportunity which arose due to another software firm's untimely demise.

From the humble beginnings of revising an existing software package due to the rapid changes in the behavioral healthcare industry, we have developed a competely integrated software package focused on the behavioral healthcare industry.
