WellStone Selects Owl to Improve Clinical Outcomes Supported by Evidence-Based Data

Data-Driven Behavioral Health Platform Helps North Alabama’s Largest Behavioral Healthcare Provider Prepare for Value-Based Care


Owl, a digital behavioral health technology company, today announced that WellStone Inc., North Alabama’s largest and most comprehensive behavioral healthcare provider, has selected Owl as its behavioral health platform to measure and improve clinical outcomes and increase transparency with its payers in preparation for value-based care.

“Partnering with Owl was an obvious choice for us,” said Jeremy Blair, CEO of WellStone. “Not only will the data from Owl help us demonstrate to payers that we deliver effective client care, but the Owl platform will engage clients in their treatment and give clinicians easy-to-use tools, leading to improved clinical outcomes,” he continued.  “As a behavioral health organization that is so deeply committed to bettering the lives of our clients within the community, Owl is the clear answer that will ultimately help the adults, adolescents and children who rely on our services in times of need.”

WellStone chose to partner with Owl to:

  • Become a more data-driven company: As an innovative and forward-thinking behavioral healthcare provider, WellStone understands the importance of being a data-driven company to track and improve patient care supported by outcomes data with measurement-based care.
  • Prepare for value-based care: WellStone will use the population health data insights generated by Owl to support value-based reimbursement models with their payers.
  • Provide management with actionable insights:  Leveraging Owl’s recently launched Owl Analytics product, WellStone will have actionable insights to assess and improve clinical effectiveness and efficiency and overall quality of care.

“As the industry moves towards being more data-driven to enable value-based care, it’s essential for behavioral health organizations to have the insights generated from quality and outcomes data at their fingertips,” said Eric Meier, CEO and President of Owl.  “Owl arms WellStone with the actionable insights needed to improve their clinical outcomes and enable value-based care.”
