“Polaris has allowed us to satisfy far more end users, in a far shorter period of time, than anything else we've tried here or that I have seen in other hospitals/systems.  Polaris truly became an extension of our staff bringing a level of expertise that would be nearly impossible to develop internally, especially at this price”.        

Bill Young, CIO, Berkshire Health Systems

 

“After evaluating our options, we chose Polaris for the completeness of their service, their flexible attitude, their willingness to doing whatever it takes to meet our needs, and the minimal impact on our IT resources. Our end users get all of their reports in a fully interactive environment that requires very little training. And Polaris automates everything for us so all the magic happens without additional work on our part”.
