Solutions for the Public Sector
Polaris's computer-based behavioral health outcomes assessment systems have been developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health following rigorous external scientific review. Government agencies use Polaris solutions to bring a more structured, evidence-based approach to addressing behavioral health and trauma in vulnerable populations. Polaris’s innovative technologies combined with strength-based content and inclusive reporting help providers engage families and clients, and improve quality of care through access to case-level prediction of outcomes and innovative behavioral health indicators. Administrators use Polaris to gather aggregate data, evaluate program quality and learn about what interventions and approaches work best with differing levels of care and clinical subgroups.
Polaris’s learning systems help organizations and service systems improve their targeting of behavioral health services so that clients receive the level and intensity of services they need the “first time” resulting in more cost-effective treatment. In this era of shrinking resources matched by rising health care costs, Polaris’s solutions can help you make better decisions in the present by anticipating the future to help you meet the challenge of reducing costs while improving patient care.
