Melissa Gard, the Pokagon Band's Clinic business manager, said, "We're already seeing dramatic time savings with iSALUS. We are able to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time caring for our people. And because of iSALUS' flexible templates within the overall record system, medical professionals at the clinic have been able to customize program templates to suit patients' needs."

It provides a fully-integrated, web-based system with features designed to streamline patient record workflow.

About the Pokagon Band

The descendants of the Potawatomi people – who have lived in the Great Lakes area for hundreds of years - are the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. There are about 4,500 tribal citizens today, The Pokagon homeland is identified now as the six counties of LaPorte, St. Joseph, Elkhart, Starke, Marshall and Kosciusko in northern Indiana and the four counties of Berrien, Cass, Van Buren and Allegan in southwest Michigan.

As Indiana's only federally-recognized tribe, and one of twelve federally-recognized tribes in Michigan, the Pokagon Band today maintains its sovereign right to self-rule, and its government-to-government relationships with Indiana, Michigan and the United States government. As a sovereign Indian nation, the Pokagon Band exercises jurisdiction over its citizens and its tribal lands, maintains an independent tribal court and police department, and regulates its natural resources. An eleven-member Tribal Council, which is elected to staggered, three-year terms by Band citizens, governs the Pokagon Band. This modern tribal government places a premium on the service it provides to citizens. As they have for generations, the Pokagon people can rely on their community for support with nourishment, shelter, learning, and physical and mental healing and wellness.  

The Band aims to respectfully promote and protect its culture, dignity, education, health and welfare and self-sufficiency of its Elders, youth, families and future generations, while preserving Mother Earth. The Pokagon Band strives to give its people a better quality of life, and to be economically independent from federal and state governments, allowing the Band to exercise its sovereignty. (Source:
