PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Owl Insights, Inc., the leading provider of care transformation technology for behavioral health today announced that AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital, has adopted The Owl at its flagship facility in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

Owl Insights is focused on solving the U.S. crisis of preventable deaths and trauma due to a lack of access to effective behavioral health. Through a cloud-based platform, "The Owl" provides health systems and independent behavioral health organizations with actionable insights that screen and stratify patient populations through patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), and tracks treatment progress through advanced reporting.

"The Owl platform empowers our clinical team to standardize the screening and intake process and the tracking of treatment services across our organization so that we can better monitor and understand the severity level of the thousands of patients that annually seek our care. Adding the Owl platform complements our mission to deliver effective and efficient care to the Chicago metropolitan area while ensuring access to care for all," said Sara Mathews, LCSW, MBA, vice president, operations, Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital at AMITA Health. "The Owl also supports our existing workflow while providing clinicians with critical data to more effectively optimize treatment."

Eric Meier, president and chief executive officer for Owl Insights, states "AMITA Health is at the forefront of deploying evidence-based behavioral health care. The information provided by The Owl is designed to ensure efficient and effective care for the patients they serve. Further, the outcomes data will better equip the organization in its communications with payers surrounding accurate payment for the treatment services it delivers. We are honored to play a key role in enabling AMITA Health to extend its evidence-based strategy."

"The Owl is an essential component in our implementation of measurement-based care strategies for the individuals we serve," said Jeff Maitland, director of patient safety and quality at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital. "We are looking forward to the positive impact it can make in helping us deliver care that changes lives across the entire AMITA Health footprint."
