Polaris Health Directions made significant advancements this year in its ongoing efforts to support the assessment and management of behavioral and psychosocial health conditions. The company ventured into new territory, while its flagship solution, the Polaris Oncology Distress Management System, continues to be well received by cancer centers across the nation.

Polaris’s newly funded research this past year included two grants from the National Institutes of Health to build groundbreaking Web-based systems for Type 1 diabetes and cancer survivorship.

The T1DES system will use e-technology to help teens with diabetes better manage their disease.• T1DES is being developed in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The POST system will create tailored survivorship plans for cancer patients in remission, and is being built in partnership with the University of Massachusetts Medical School.**

Both projects will launch their phase one studies this spring.

In addictions medicine, Polaris and the New Hope Foundation developed a prototype for an automated system designed to better predict and improve patient engagement in substance abuse treatment. With engagement a crucial element to successful treatment outcomes, this system has the potential to revolutionize the field.

Several enhancements were also made this year to Polaris Oncology, including Quality of Life modules. This critical new component helps multidisciplinary cancer care teams minimize the factors that may interfere with a patient’s well being and treatment outcomes.

As the movement to better understand the interplay between behavioral and physical health strengthens, Polaris Health Directions looks forward to being an industry leader in those efforts in 2014 and beyond across the medical disciplines.
