On February 15, Tina Harralson, Ph.D., senior research scientist at Polaris Health Directions, will present at the American Psychosocial Oncology Society (APOS) conference. Her presentation will focus on the development and implementation of the Polaris Oncology Distress Management System.

Polaris Oncology is a Web-based system used by cancer centers to assess, monitor and manage psychosocial distress among cancer patients, in accordance with recommendations set forth by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). The CoC selected Polaris Oncology for its Best Practices Repository.

Dr. Harralson’s discussion will begin by outlining the National Institutes of Health-funded research that is the foundation for Polaris Oncology. The system was developed in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Cooper University Hospital. It has been field tested with more than 1000 cancer patients, and is psychometrically sound and normed for use with cancer patients.

Dr. Harralson will then share data and case studies from the implementation of Polaris Oncology, including how it can be easily integrated into routine care, customized to a practice’s needs and linked to electronic health record (EHR) systems. With psychosocial distress management a key concern in cancer care, Dr. Harralson will present a compelling argument for how Polaris Oncology can help improve a patient’s quality of life and ensure that emotional distress is being adequately addressed.

In addition to assessing and monitoring psychosocial concerns, Polaris Oncology also includes brief screeners for alcohol and tobacco use. Upon completion of the assessment, the system generates referrals for identified areas of need, as well as a personalized feedback report for patients that includes educational information and support resources tailored to their type of cancer and assessment responses. The cancer care team report summarizes, in one page, a patient’s global functioning and lists percentile ranks based on cancer-patient norms for behavioral health status, depression and anxiety scales.

The 10th annual APOS conference will be held on February 14-16, 2013, in Huntington Beach, Calif. It is titled,“From Psychosocial Oncology to Oncology Supportive Care Services: New Evidence, Standards and Models for Patient-Centered Care.”

Polaris's advanced technology and science driven assessment systems are designed to capture the clinical data essential to quality improvement and enhanced organizational management. Polaris solutions provide advanced analytics to help organizations improve and demonstrate to their customers the value of their care. With a focus on prediction, Polaris solutions do more than describe clinical change. Polaris systems also indicate if treatment is likely to have a positive result. Helping organizations make better decisions in the present by anticipating the future will be the difference in reducing their costs while improving patient care.
